Not so much a datasheet website, but this site has got lots of schematics and service manuals for loads of stuff:

www.schematicsunlimited.com
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.

They corrupt the datasheets, inserting their ads and trashing metadata (set document title to their website name, insert pages and watermarks...). They also pollute the search results with their entries, shifting legitimate manufacturers sites down into oblivion.
I block most of the datasheet sites in my google search for that reason.
I'll take the datasheet from manufacturers site, thank you.

I usually just google it like

Quote
filetype:pdf datasheet PART
exemple: https://www.google.com/search?q=filetype:pdf+datasheet+ne555

To make life easier i've made a bookmarklet, to find datasheets, this is the code:
Code: [Select]
javascript:
(function(){if(part=prompt('Search Datasheet','NE555')){
   url="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&&btnI=I%27m+Feeling+Lucky&aq=f&q=filetype:pdf+datasheet+"+part;
   if(!window.open(url))
      location.href=url;
}})();

Or simply go here
Datasheet Finder Bookmarklet

I hope this was useful

Another one worth keeping around:

http://www.electronicsandbooks.com/eab1/manual/index.php?dir=Electronic+Component+Databook+Datasheet%2F

Lots of old databooks here. Unfortunately the site is insanely slow. Like... 56k modem speeds. Not good when the PDFs are 20+MB.

.... 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.

Back in the day, I used to rely heavily on ECG Master Replacement Guide for transistor cross references and specs.
I actually pulled 1996 copy off the book shelf, looked up C9014, and found it. (equivalent to ECG123A / NTE123A).
Anyway, all this is available via online search now -
http://nte01.nteinc.com/nte/NTExRefSemiProd.nsf/$$Search?OpenForm

Datasheet for equivalent:
http://www.nteinc.com/specs/100to199/pdf/nte123ap.pdf

Have fun!

I just found datasheet360.com on the wilderness of talking electronics.com. I just did a quick search of the 2n2222: I gave me a list
of 2n2222 datasheets with many different manufacture. unlike datasheet.com or datasheetarchive.com it has a usable interface that is simple yet can narrow down search results.

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.


THANK YOU!   :-+

Note that only the main datasheet for a part cannot be enough.

Most (digital) parts have errata sheets, that require careful reading if you don't want to get stuck for DAYS at an odd problem. And you do want to have the most recent version, claiming (hopefully) all the bugs for each silicon revision.

Some CPU datasheets have separate user manuals, summary datasheets, or microchip even list each peripheral in it's own document. For a PIC32 there are like 24+ PDF's on 1 chip's page , all with useful information.

Then there are application notes, sample schematics/projects and/or evaluation boards that can be useful for designing as well. These are neither found on these generic websites.

Chances are you won't find these very useful documents easily (or at all) on alldatasheet.com or a like.

@Simon: User manuals or datasheets from NXP/ST ARM microcontroller parts can be a rollercoaster-ride-with-the-scrolling-wheel as well.. ;)

Ah yes, microchip, they are experts at scattering information to the 4 winds, even withing the same datasheet !

Good google search if you're bored (or if you have a pdf sucking tool of some sort).

Heres a electronic parts x-ref search engine

www.turuta.md

EDIT: Scrol down the page to see the book.There are other books too.
listed as coming soon:
World transistor databook
Color and irregular marking of electronic components
Small audio signal integrated circuits
Low power management integrated circuits
Mobile phones periferal integrated circuits
Miniature LOGIC integrated circuits

 i`m in no way connected to the site,i just thought these books would be usefull,

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 :)

Try to add "filetype:pdf" instead of just "pdf". Even better ;)

Yes, mine too! I guess its the only one without those moving banners, and almost hidden download buttons. Simple and good looking, I like it :D But sometimes it doesn't have parts, that other sites have.

I like to use

http://www.partbuyer.com/

and
 
http://www.eciaauthorized.com/

because you can access not only to the datasheet but also to estimated quote and authorized distributor.
They do not work for all components but it is quite effective for common parts.

You should avoid all the plethora of crap WowLotsOfDatasheets GetYourDataSheetsHere.com sites that are out there, you'll find nothing but ads and banners and crap, and you'll be jumping through hoops trying to find the datasheet.

Do a Google query, and look at the results carefully - pick out the ones that are direct links to PDFs, especially if you see the name of a recognised semiconductor/electronics company in the URL - this approach will help you filter out the crap and go directly to an accurate, usable datasheet with no bullshit.

Or, look up the part using a major distributor such as Digi-Key and from each Digi-Key product page you'll get a direct bullshit-free link to the datasheet with a single click.

Digi-Key almost universally links directly to the manufacture's datasheets from the part pages. As long as the link continues to exist, it should be the direct link to the manufacturer's website and the most current datasheet.  I only use the datasheetyyy.xxx websites if it's a long gone part.
