Anyone who’s been tracking the business of providing product information and data knows that companies have risen, striven, and died based on the belief that they could help you make that device or component selection easier than anyone else, and some have prevailed. With that idea in mind, I’m excited to guide you to our latest service, www.datasheets.com, and what I think is the best free site out there to help you find, select, and obtain the part you need when you need it.
The result of a partnership between EDN’s owner, UBM Electronics, and SiliconExpert Technologies, Datasheets.com hosts data sheets and information on 185 million parts—and growing—and is rife with selection features, including parametric searches, saved searches, parts comparisons, and inventory watches. Independent companies have in the past provided parametric-search capabilities for specific parts—microcontrollers, for example—but this task is difficult to do for everything from resistors to power devices and processors. Datasheets.com does it and does it well. It also allows you to save your searches and go back to them later.
