Welcome to Digilent's academic program. Engineering tools every student can own.

At Digilent, our mission has always been—and still is—to make engineering technologies understandable and accessible to all.

We provide educators and students with low-cost, fundamental tools and curricula to turn this mission into reality.  Products like the newly released Analog Discovery 3 mixed-signal oscilloscope, or the entry-level Basys 3 FPGA development board, put the hardware in the student’s hands for maximum engagement and growth —in a traditional classroom setting or remote.


As of 2022, we have expanded academic pricing to all products! Verified academic accounts will now receive 15% off all products that weren't already discounted. Please see our Price List for the most up-to-date pricing information.

Digilent Learn is our open, freely accessible community resource for sharing teaching and learning materials focused on electrical and computer engineering. This resource is built around a collection of hands-on design projects that offer insight and design experience in key areas like analog circuit design, microprocessor programming, and digital circuit design.

All of our Learn projects are posted under the Creative Commons license, so anyone can use, modify, and repost them as desired. Each project is self-contained and designed to expose a fundamental concept in hardware or software design. Whether you are independently advancing your skills or in a formal educational program, Learn projects will help you master the fundamentals.

Teaching remotely: Accessible learning wherever you are.

Exchanging the familiarity of the lab or classroom you love for a workstation in your home office has been a new reality for educators around the world. Teaching and preparing ECE courses is challenging to begin with, and losing face-to-face interaction and hands-on instruction is that much more difficult. Digilent aims to help you sort out and maintain the logistics of your remote teaching environment. Covering a wide range of engineering courses, Digilent Learn offers evergreen content to help make your class more successful.
