Electronics Datasheets

An online inventory of electronic parts & electronic datasheets

As we move into the second half of 2015, the pace of development for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Wearables continues to expand and grow at a fast pace. Naturally this leads to a greater demand for low power, small sized and super efficient Wireless, Energy Harvesting and Sensor solutions for Wearable and IoT Designs.

The TI Reference Design Library Center is the leading reference design resource to support engineers in all their designs and applications.

Here’s some of our top picks:

Solar Dice: a Sensor Node in the Internet of Things

A Quick Guide to Having Your Products Listed on ElectronicsDatasheets.com

The most faq for us here at EDS Central is “how do I get my datasheets onto your site” – as the site has grown over the past few years to over 1,100 manufacturers, each week we get numerous requests from manufacturers asking how to get their products listed alongside our growing database of datasheets. It’s a simple process, and we can get products listed within a few days of receiving the information or feed from you, with no costs involved for listing.

Ideally we ask manufacturers to provide us with a regularly updated feed with FTP so that we can make sure we only list their live products and live datasheets, but of course we understand that many manufacturers simply do not have the capability or resource to be able to put into this practice, so we are happy to accept a one-off listing which can then be updated whenever the product range changes, expands or contracts.

The file format of the feed or listing can be in Excel, CSV or a Text file, with the following columns:

PART NUMBER
SERIES OR FAMILY NAME
DESCRIPTION
LINK TO PDF FILE

Part Number
The part number must be a unique entry, and we are happy to accept all variations of a single part (especially in the case of passive components), but this should be the unique identifier that engineers know your product by and will be searching information on. If preferred, manufacturers can provide the part header and omit the additional extra part field options. This is a mandatory field.

Series or Family Name
If the part belongs to a larger series or family, this should be listed in the second column accordingly. This is not necessarily required for all parts but should always be used where parts are within a specific series of parts as a way to link particular parts together.

Description
The description field can be as exhaustive as necessary, the more information you provide about your part, the more chance it has of standing out from your competitors. Of course the description should include some key words that identify the product quickly and easily. This is a mandatory field.

Link to PDF File
The PDF Link should only link to the raw pdf file not to your product page otherwise we will not be able to list your product. This is a mandatory field.

Manufacturers can also provide additional fields and information which they feel is relevant and product specific (eg. product images, product page links, additional technical specifications) as we can incorporate this additional data onto the site on a manufacturer by manufacturer basis.

If manufacturers are not able to produce a listing, we have the ability to access the information by out team and produce a listing for you (at no cost).

Once we have the feed, we will download the information onto the site and that’s it – no costs are involved in any way! You are now part of the EDS family and a very warm welcome awaits…The benefits of listing include the fact that engineers are able to download the latest and most accurate information of your product for their design – in addition we will feature your company on our weekly newsletter, social media postings and as a new feature here for all newly submitted feeds.

If you are an electronics supplier or distributor the process is slightly different as you will need to send us a daily/weekly feed of your products – contact us for more info.

Contact the site uploads team at info@electronicsdatasheets.com to learn more or to submit your feed or follow this link for more info.

3D comes to ED

In the world of 3D Printing, the ultimate dream must surely be a Star Trek Replicator in every household, with food, drink and any other matter available at our voice commands. Whilst the dream of actually creating a replicator in real life, as opposed to Trek World, remains an enterprise firmly placed out of reach of even our next generation, 3D printing has within the past few months had a revolution as the technology reduces in size and cost, allowing more and businesses and consumers access into this strange new world.

With this in mind the brain(s) at EDS Headquarters have started on a continuing mission to bring you Datasheets for the newest and most accessible 3D Printers for home and business use. Here are some of our faves:

Son of Pi Arrives – Pi 2: Take my money Eben!

This week saw the unexpected release of the replacement for the Raspberry Pi Model B, the Raspberry Pi 2. Packing an almighty punch of 900 Mhz with 1GB of RAM, powered by the equally newly released Broadcom BCM2836 ARMv7 Quad Core Processor, that equates to a 6 times faster board than the previous model.  And to top the Pi off, the price comes in at a finger licking $35 / £22.85. The operating system kernel has been upgraded to take full advantage of the latest ARM Cortex-A7 technology and is available with the new version 1.4 of NOOBS software.

All previous Raspberry Pi projects are compatible with the new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, and the expanded GPIO pins, advanced power management and connectivity, make it possible to connect up to four USB devices, including some powered devices such as hard drives. The 40-pin GPIO enables multiple sensors, connectors and expansion boards to be added, with the first 26 pins identical to the Model A and B boards, for full backward compatibility.

In another surprise, it was announced that the Raspberry Pi 2-compatible version of Windows 10 will be available free of charge to makers – see WindowsOnDevices.com to join the Windows Developer Program for IoT and receive updates as they become available.

Looking for the Volume Switch, look no further…

LeapPadSThe phenomenon of Tablet PCs has now made it down to the most demanding of consumers, those aged 10 and under. To counterbalance the broken iPads and give the little treasures their own tablet to break, the LeapPads have come into their own and have found to be extremely successful over the past few years since they were released. Now their processors (snort) are not going to get you even a raised eyebrow in our hitech world, but hey they do the job and do the job damn well in our opinion, the “3” using a quad core processor for heavens sake. The new LeapPad Ultra comes with an 800MHz ARM chip, and 8GB of onboard memory (double that of the 4GB in the LeapPad 2). The newest LeapPad adds what the company calls “Web-safe Wi-Fi,” powered by Zui.

We’ve added the Parent Guides for these wonderful items here: http://www.electronicsdatasheets.com/pdf-datasheets/leapfrog/

BTW, the volume switches are on the right 🙂
