DigiKey Electronics 2015 calendar & poster @digikey

Digi-Key Poster Orig 142

It’s holiday season, this means cards and gifts from vendors (check out this cool UPS card here) – What did we get from DigiKey Electronics? This handy wall calendar / poster! What is DigiKey? They are a worldwide distributor of electronic components, from small quantities for prototype design to large volumes for production. We use them a lot here at Adafruit and have for years, they’re one of our favorite companies and this is the poster they sent us – pictured here, Ladyada & Teddy!

Here’s a cool history tid-bit about them from Wikipedia:

Digi-Key is the fourth largest electronic component distributor in North America and a broad-line distributor of board level components. It ranks as the fifth largest electronic component distributor in the world. Ronald Stordahl founded the company in 1972 and its name is a reference to the “Digi-Keyer Kit”, a digital electronic keyer kit that he developed and marketed to amateur radio enthusiasts. He continues to privately own the company.
