Datasheet Database
« on: October 16, 2009, 04:07:17 AM »
This site has a great concept - easily searchable datasheets.
I just thought I'd pass on the resource, and hopefully some of you will be able to contribute to help it grow!

There are also other interesting databases:
www.alldatasheet.com,
www.datasheetpro.com,
www.digchip.com,
www.datasheetcatalog.net

Service Manuals:

just google the part and within the first page there will be at least two results from datasheet archive sites

I usually google the part number and add "pdf", works everytime :)

This isn't cheap for a hobbiest, but it's really useful

Ultra Librarian
http://www.accelerated-designs.com/(S(msz2wx55m1tmdb45pm5qyu55))/home.aspx

It has a bunch of parts + foortprints via an online database that then can export to a bunch of different EDA software, you can knock out a new part in minutes.

doesn't contain the whole datasheet, but still very worthfile.

adding filetype:pdf is a good googlism i usually add a -inventory as well to get rid of the part miners.

Unfortunately I have a tedious section in one of my textbooks full of chip data. It's useful but painful to look through.

First place I try for datasheets is Farnell website (au.farnell.com for Australia, etc) - they're usually pretty good for current things.

Google filetype:pdf is the proper way to do it. I also works for any file type.

My first port of call is usually Alldatasheet, but having the options is good! I'll flick them all on to my colleagues- It's good to have a listing of this, it might be an idea to sticky it somewhere prominent.

I'm a Beginner with a capital "B". So I'll certainly give it a try. I've been looking for something better. My biggest issue is in finding an understandable cross-reference. My Mickey Mouse Radio Shack Learning Lab came with transistors simply marked C9014. I can find data sheets easy enough but when I try to find a place to order them they offer NPNs with numbers other than that (but not the 9014). So I need some way of knowing what will interchange. Thanks

There are so many transistors out there it's nearly impossible to cross reference them. You sort of just have to dive into the datasheets and get close, looking for the special bits that are unusual. If you're not doing anything particularly special then almost anything that's the same polarity (PNP vs. NPN) and size (TO92 in this case) should work ok.

Here's a good writeup on selecting a replacement transistor.

Hope that helps some. :)

Just as valuable as finding a data-sheet is finding out if a given part is actually available.
I find this website invaluable...

Hi,

I find this site great for finding datasheets:

http://doc.chipfind.ru/

Can't remember how I found it but it'll search partial part numbers better than Google if you're trying to identify a part.

i use digchip for most of my sheets usually from boards i salvage. i have a whole folder full of the PDFs from there

You can use 2N3904 or BC547 for the NPN and 2N3906 or BC557 for their PNP complements.

I like to use the sites where i buy them from Digikey or Jameco usually, some times Jameco cuts out some information, but usualy the important stuff is there, that or i go to the manufacture.

For me the best place to look for datasheets for jelly-bean components - is http://www.datasheetcatalog.com/
Not google, because in datasheetcatalog you can select datasheets from different manufacturers for a given component.

Usually when searching for components I use two websites: http://DigiKey.com/ and http://www.datasheetcatalog.com/ (o, well, and google of course)

But I wanted to tell you about one thing that _really_ speeds up searching for datasheets.
It's a small browser tweak I use - search engines keywords.

For example: If I want to look for BC817 datasheet, I just type "d BC817" (without "", of course) in my browser address bar. And momentarily I'm getting list of datasheets from different manufacturers for BC817 from datasheetcatalog.
The same way I can search for videos on youtube typing: "y SomeVideoNameToLookFor" or on wikipedia "w nuclear reaction", etc.

To add DatasheetCatalog to the list of search engines I've used "Add To Search Bar 2.0" firefox addon (which you can find in list of official addons).
I've included some screenshots - they're pretty much self-explaining.

What's wrong simply grabbing them from the manufacturers website ? All those cyber-squatter sites like all-datasheet and others do nothing else but make you jump through hoops to get a pdf file. And very frequently they present you the wrong one. I have a lot of instances where you land on these sites and the datasheet isn't even there.
Another problem is that they often have old versions of the datasheet with outdate information or mistakes.

my advice : ALWAYS go to the manufacturers site FIRST. if you don't know the manufacturer : go to Digikey or Mouser websites and type in the partnumber. you will get a list of parts: 99.9 % of the parts these guys sell has the link to the REAL datasheet from the manufacturer. Simply click on the icon there and you will have the latest version.

If it's an obsolete part THEN, and only THEN can you use those garbage collectors, and spewers, like alldatasheet, chipfind. There's even an outfit that sells you a subscription to their datasheet collection. These guess essentially sell you PDF files that they do not own , or are licenced to sell. ( yes the datasheets do carry a copyright by their writers and companies that own them)

Google relly needs to make work of eliminating all those datasheet squatter sites.

here is a transistor database, it also other than the search function lists near drop in replacements for even some of the more obscure stuff, it also for 90% of the stuff lists relevant datasheets for them,

edit: forgot the link http://alltransistors.com/
