Digi-Key Corp.Eugene, OR — November 6, 2012 — VersaLogic Corp., the embedded industry's most trusted computer company, today announced the signing of a global distribution agreement with global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation. Digi-Key is recognized world-wide as having the industry's largest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment.

"The goal for our first move into distribution was to provide design engineers around the world immediate access to select, evaluate, and purchase our products online. We were also seeking a distributor who would be reliable for our customers and easy to work with," said Bruce McKinnon, Chief Operating Officer of VersaLogic Corp. "We knew Digi-Key was at the pinnacle of the industry online, but when we discovered the alignment in core values and how easy it would be to work with them, the choice was clear."

This new partnership enables design engineers and procurement professionals 24/7 access to VersaLogic product information and selection tools, as well as inventory levels, pricing, purchasing, and technical support. All products are shipped from Digi-Key's North American warehouse, enabling delivery within 2 business days to anywhere in the world.

"The embedded industry continues to evolve with total cost of ownership and extended product life at the forefront. We wanted to offer our customers a premium line of embedded computers that would address this," said Mark Zack, Vice President of Global Semiconductor Product at Digi-Key Corporation. "VersaLogic's consistency of building rugged and field-reliable products, along with lifecycle leadership for over three decades, made them our ideal first comprehensive embedded computer line."
