It complements our existing EW Compare component pricing comparison functionality and will soon be joined by a new, fully revamped Company Directory section (but more of that another time.)
What does Samacys bring to the Electronics Weekly party? Well, just take a little bit of time to check out the features and benefits.
For example, it gives access to 12 million components with schematic symbols, PCB footprints and 3D models:
If CAD models are not yet built for a new component the Samacys team will build it for you for free. It promises that its turnaround time is very fast and incredibly accurate:
If you want to build the CAD Models yourself, however, you can use what is described as the world’s only free IPC part builder:
Also, you can search for parts just like you would when using Google. Just type a detailed set of words until you see what you need in the results. No need to tick through selection filters:
Looking at the search results set, there is a wealth of information, designed to focus on the important info an engineer needs to make their decision:
- An image
- Whether ECAD models are available for quick design in
- Whether a 3D model is available
- Datasheet links
- The manufacturer
- The live price and stock information from leading suppliers
Data is power
Hopefully that quick tour has encouraged you to investigate further.
The component search engine aims to be best place to find data sheets online. It also helps with price comparisons, too. Give it a drive!
