DesignSpark celebrates as membership reaches 12,000

With membership rocketing to over 12,000 in less than 8 weeks DesignSpark has become one of the fastest growing start up sites for the electronics community.

Launched on July 5th, DesignSpark is a gateway to online design resources, giving engineers trusted and reliable information, user-generated reviews and tools.

Through DesignSpark, engineers are able to download free design tools such as DesignSpark PCB, the world's most powerful free schematic and PCB design tool, track the latest developments in embedded computing from ARM and Arduino, see project developments on the RS EDP, and review new Development Kits. The Spark Store also offers new design tools from a range of manufacturers and programming tools from across the web. Members have publicised useful links, training events and materials, using DesignSpark as the gateway to resources both within the site and in the wider electronics design community.

Glenn Jarrett, Head of Electronics Marketing, said: "We are very pleased to see how quickly DesignSpark has become a favourite site for engineers. Our customers told us the value they place on free design tools and resources, and this has been demonstrated by the positive reaction to the features within DesignSpark."
