TechXchange is an online community for the electronics industry and initially launched on Digi-Key’s US website in April 2011. Design engineers, inventors, students, academics, and professionals use the forum to share ideas and receive free, expert electronics advice as part of the online community.

TechXchange is comprised of six online communities segmented by technology category – energy harvesting, lighting, microcontroller, power, sensor, and wireless solutions. TechXchange forum members can find the support and answers they need to create electronics-based products by submitting questions to other users in addition to sharing their own research and findings. Digi-Key Design Specialists in each technology category are available online to provide advice and counsel.

For the country-specific websites listed above, the TechXchange forum will have the same format and features as the US version. The only exception being that on the international TechXchange sites, users will have the option to translate content on the page to different languages through Google Translate. This will also apply to future international implementations of TechXchange.

To access the international TechXchange forum, visit and choose one of the country-specific websites listed above.
