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:
SERIES OR FAMILY NAME
LINK TO PDF FILE
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.
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.
