Product Training Modules Take Off At Digi-Key

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 20, 2006— Digi-Key Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of its new Digi-Key Product Training Module (PTM(R)) program to its flagship US Web site, www.digikey.com. These modules offer design engineers 24/7 access to in-depth product seminars on leading edge product to be viewed at their convenience. This new educational program is a continuation of Digi-Key's long-standing commitment to service all of its customers needs - from prototype to production.

These Web-based learning tools were developed and produced by Digi-Key with the cooperation of several of its supplier partners, including Altera Corporation, Analog Devices Inc., Fairchild Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, Micrel Inc., Philips, Silicon Laboratories and STMicroelectronics. Currently, there are 10 training modules. This is only the start of what Digi-Key envisions will become a large library of training modules.

"We are excited to kick off this new program," said Mark Larson, Digi-Key's president and COO. "It provides yet another valuable tool for the engineer's toolbox and furthers Digi-Key's goal of becoming a one-stop shop that accommodates of all of our customers' needs."

PTMs will accelerate time to market, as engineers will now be able to learn about the latest products and technologies, contact Digi-Key's technical support staff, download datasheets, and check inventory and place an order for same-day shipping - all from within the boundaries of its single Web site.

Varying in length from 15 to 35 minutes, the audio and non-audio versions of the modules require Macromedia Flash 6 or newer, free software programs that can be installed on your computer. The modules are also available as MP3 downloads.
