Digi-Key, ARM Partner on Labs-in-a-Box

Digi-Key Electronics is partnering with ARM's University Program to help make the latter's Lab-in-a-Box (LiB) available to universities.

Launched in February 2014, LiB includes ARM-based technology and training materials designed for electronics and computer engineering courses.

"The Lab-in-a-Box package includes hardware development boards, professional software licenses from ARM and complete teaching materials from the ARM University Program ready to be deployed in classes," according to a news release. "These include lecture note slides, demonstration codes, lab manuals and projects with solutions in source."

As a result of the partnership, Digi-key will be distributing the kits worldwide, beginning with the Rapid Embedded System Design and Programming LiB.

"We are delighted for the opportunity to work with ARM to bring Lab-in-a-Box to Digi-Key's academic customers and future engineers around the globe," said Bob Brown, Director of Academic Business Development at Digi-Key. "This great initiative will benefit university professors and students in their journey to design and create technologies that will significantly impact our connected world."
