DesignSpark Online Engineering Community Reaches Milestone With One Million Members Around the World

October 13, 2020

Allied Electronics & Automation is recently marking a significant milestone as the company recorded more than one million members on its DesignSpark engineering platform. This impressive number of registrations has been achieved in the same year that the company celebrates 10 years of DesignSpark and signals the platform’s importance and popularity amongst the global engineering community.

Since its launch in July 2010, DesignSpark has provided professional engineers, start-ups and students around the world with a host of engineering tools and resources, including its professional suite of PCB, mechanical and electrical design software, all freely available to download once registered as a DesignSpark member. Members also take advantage of the platform to share projects, connect with other engineers and students, stay at the forefront of technology, and explore new-to-market product introductions.

Over the past 10 years, DesignSpark has continuously developed with functionality and range of resources and has more than doubled its membership in the past three years. Engagement statistics indicate that a new engineer joins the platform every two minutes, professional-level design software is opened every 20 seconds, assets from the CAD-neutral libraries are downloaded every 12 seconds, and a piece of content shared by the community is viewed every four seconds.

Lindsley Ruth, CEO Electrocomponents, commented: “Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of DesignSpark over the years, helping us reach this incredible milestone. The real value of DesignSpark is the community itself, and it is the members that truly make the difference. RS is simply the custodian of ensuring the resources and tools stay up to date. We are hugely proud to be at the heart of what has evolved into a vast engineering support team valued by so many users worldwide.”

Mike Bray, Group VP of Innovation and DesignSpark, commented: “This has been a momentous year for DesignSpark, marking our 10th anniversary and a revamp of the online platform back in July, and now recording our one millionth member. A massive heartfelt thank you goes out to all our members, partners, supporters and contributors. You are the reason for DesignSpark, and why we keep looking for new ways to remove barriers to engineering design and to develop our support for engineers of every age, everywhere.”
