Buy Discounted Kits and Tools

Atmel offers official members of the University Program an option to purchase any Atmel® AVR® design tool or device at a 25% discount. With a discount on hardware tools, you can update your lab even on a small budget. This ensures continued success for lecturers, researchers and students in many areas within the embedded systems engineering field. You can buy your discounted hardware through our distributor partner DigiKey®. In order to receive the discount the quote and purchase must be done via DigiKey®, not just found on DigiKey®.

Step 1: Browse the DigiKey® website to find the items you want to purchase.

Step 2: To get the discount, you must request a quote. If you execute a normal order, you will not get the discount.

Step 3: In the Comments field, you must include this string: "As a registered member of the Atmel University Program we are entitled to a 25% discount on all Atmel AVR products"

The name of the contact person on the order and the shipment address should be the same as the information provided in the membership form for the University Program. All products bought through this University Program will become the property of the University, and must be used for educational purposes only. No products may be resold or distributed outside the University.
