Custom Post Type Template Hierarchy – Single post template

I have registered a custom post type and I am trying to make posts of that type display in a specific template file but can’t figure out what to name my template file in order for the posts to use it.

Here’s my code in my functions file:

function digital_post_type() {

register_post_type( ‘digital’,
array(
‘labels’ => array(
‘name’ => __( ‘Digital Assets’ ),
‘singular_name’ => __( ‘Digital Asset’ ),
‘menu_name’ => __( ‘Digital’),
‘name_admin_bar’ => __( ‘Digital Assets’),
‘add_new’ => __( ‘Add New’),
‘add_new_item’ => __( ‘Add New Digital Asset’),
‘new_item’ => __( ‘New Digital Asset’),
‘edit_item’ => __( ‘Edit Digital Asset’),
‘view_item’ => __( ‘View Digital Asset’),
‘all_items’ => __( ‘All Digital Assets’)
),
‘public’ => true,
‘has_archive’ => true,
‘rewrite’ => array( ‘slug’ => ‘digital_assets’ ),
‘supports’ => array( ‘title’,’thumbnail’, ‘excerpt’ )
)
);

}

add_action( ‘init’, ‘digital_post_type’ );

I tried naming my template file single-digital_assets.php but the posts are still using the default single.php template.
