Digi-Key Electronics to match donations to KiCad from 1-7 December 2022

05 December 2022

Digi-Key Electronics has announced that it will match donations made to KiCad from 1-7 December 2022, up to $15,000 (£12,000).

KiCad is an open-source software suite for Electronic Design Automation (EDA). The goal of KiCad is to provide the best possible cross-platform electronics design application for professional electronics designers. 

Every effort is made to hide the complexity of advanced design features so KiCad remains approachable to new and inexperienced users, as well as meeting the needs of professional users.

“We believe it’s important for design tools and resources to be easily accessible and user-friendly for engineers around the world, and KiCad is a great example of a free, open-source application that helps make professional electronics designers’ jobs easier,” said Cody Walseth, Digital Product Owner at Digi-Key Electronics. 

“We continue to be proud supporters of KiCad and the fundraising efforts that help them enhance their capabilities and bring their open-source software to even more engineers around the world.”

"Digi-Key has been a long-time sponsor of the KiCad project and we welcome their continued support through the 2022 end-of-year fund drive campaign," said Wayne Stambaugh, Project Manager of KiCad.
