Component Search Engines

Hi All,

Just wondering what your favourite component search engines are (the type that search the inventories or all the main component suppliers, and provides a list of stock and pricing)?

I have used PartMiner before, but I believe there are other free types out there. Which ones do you use?

Thanks! Mark.

Digikey. If they don't have it in stock I'm very reluctant to use it, particularly this year. My normal suppliers had better have some pretty good assurances of supply if it's not an in-stock item.

Thanks Rich, just what I was looking for!

Thnaks. I already search Digikey, Farnell (Newark in the US), RS and Mouser to get some idea of availablity. Rich has pointed out a couple of search engines that act as front-ends to these type of suppliers.

Those are the ones I use. I sometimes find that the search engines will find parts at either Newark or Mouser that I can't find with their internal search function. (weird.) Digikey has by far the best parameter search.

Except for the "price" parameter :) Although the "qty available" column can be a surrogate for this.

That's my default method for finding datasheets, too. FindChips->Newark or Digikey->datasheet link. Much faster than navigating the mfg sites.

is good for finding datasheets, particularly if the device is not in the usual supplier catalogs.

Thanks, I often find searching in Google for a datasheet pops that one up. It's a bit incomplete though (e.g. ATtiny88-AU isn't there) but have found other things I couldn't find elsewhere.

Yup, that's good medicine too. OTOH for design purposes one wants the distributor parts!

Yeah, digikey has become my default storage location for data sheets. I keep sending them orders for the same reason I buy all my beer from the =91deli=92 down the bottom of my hill. I like their service and I=92d hate for them to disappear.

Yup, depends if it's design or service work? I do the odd bit of service work on industrial stuff.
