Linking a Digi-Key Account

Your Digi-Key login enables Digi-Key’s part search engine to serve you parts.  To link your PartQuest account to a Digi-Key account, go to the My Profile page, accessible by clicking your name in the top right corner of the screen. In the Digi-Key section under Suppliers, you will see button to link your account. This will take you to the Digi-Key website, where you can log in with your current account or register for a new account.

Alternatively, attempting to search before linking a Digi-Key account will result in a prompt to link to a supplier.

Selecting Desktop Integration

There are two methods for downloading your parts for use in your preferred PCB design tool: Dropbox and direct download.


Dropbox is a free file hosting service that offers cloud storage that is accessible through their website or through a downloadable desktop application. Your Dropbox login allows PartQuest to access your Dropbox account in order to make an encrypted transfer of the items from your PartQuest search to Dropbox so that your parts show up in a directory on your workstation. Using the desktop application will allow you to conveniently access your PartQuest library from your CAD tool.

Once you have synced with your Dropbox account, PartQuest will create a folder in your Dropbox (found in the Apps subdirectory) called "PartQuest."

Direct Download

The direct download setting will allow you to download your parts through the browser as a .pqz archive file. Before using direct download, you will need to download the PartQuest integration utility. See more details on using direct download on the Downloading Part Data page.
