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:
www.eserviceinfo.com,
safemanuals.com

If you know more useful sites please post it.

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.
Got done doing 126kmph on the Fed Hwy at Collector but not at Base or Emitter.

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. :)
