The Digilent Analog Discovery™ design kit, developed in conjunction with Analog Devices Inc., is the first in a new line of all-in-one analog design kits that will enable engineering students to quickly and easily experiment with advanced technologies and build and test real-world, functional analog design circuits anytime, anywhere - right on their PCs. For the price of a textbook, students can purchase a low-cost analog hardware development platform and components, with access to downloadable teaching materials, reference designs and lab projects to design and implement analog circuits as a supplement to their core engineering curriculum.
Engineering schools have traditionally had to build and maintain centralized teaching labs. These labs, with their specialized equipment and trained lab assistants, are expensive and hard to maintain. With the Analog Discovery design kit, we're helping schools build distributed labs - labs that can be found in dorm rooms, cafeterias, libraries - anywhere students want to work.
