  1. Improve parametric part search by sorting numbers as numbers (in lists), not sorting as text.

    I've just tried to find a very high brightness, narrow angle RED LED using parametric search. I thought it would be very straightforward. Optoelectronics->Visible LED. Select 'Viewing angle'. That was easy. Try to select RED. That was harder, because RED appears in many labels, 'Ultra red' 'Super red', which wasn't very helpful. I wanted any/all REDs. Then I went for Luminous intensity. I expected a sliding range like angle. But no, it's a list of values. Worse, they are sorted as if they are words, and not decimal numbers! So they are sorted by first digit, then by next digit.…

  2. Enable to type in the desired quantity

    When a new list is created, in the field "Paste a list or add part numbers manually", besides pasting the part number, it would very helpful if we could also paste the desired quantity.

  3. Remember Export Preferences or change default preferences

    Allow users to save their exported columns, or update default columns to include crucial information like what the price is and who it is coming from (as well as lead time, stock, and life cycle code). See image for reference

  4. With BOM export, include "original part number" column by default.

    Please include the original part number column by default, 9/10 times this information is absolutely necessary.

  6. Delete Lists

    I would like to be able to delete lists easier, right from the list of lists.

  7. Optional minimal Report view

    An option for a more summarized view (similar to Octopart) would be nice for those using the site for large volumes of serial searching (my most common use of this site over multiple jobs has required a significant number of 'serial' searching).

    I don't know how much it would help others, but it would help me complete my tasks much more quickly.

  8. Buying more than one record at once.

    When you have more that 1 record from the same distributor (i.e. Mouser) on the list, there should be an option to buy all records from this distributor by 1 button click. So, when redirected to the distributor site, there should be all the records in the shopping cart.

  9. Connection with Altium, Orcad,...

    Orcad, Altium and many more has a scripting language, that can be used to integrate Findchips great search tool to the tools many engineers use today.

  10. Make a Findchips Internet Explorer accelerator add-in

    I would LOVE to be able to highlight a part number on a webpage, right-click on it to open an Internet Explorer context menu, then choose "Find inventory using Findchips", rather than Control-C to copy the part number, open a new tab, navigate to Findchips.com, then paste in the part number and click Find.

  11. Expand "see more" by default

    To get high quantity prices, I have to click "See more" on every single thing. Why not just expand this by default?

  12. Wildcards would be very helpful

    When shopping for parts it is very helpful to be able to wildcard certain characters in a part number. For example in one of our internal browser-based search tools, we can use % to wildcard a range of characters or ? for a single char.

    Examples:

    CY62148EV30LL-%SXIT will return the following:
    CY62148EV30LL-45ZSXIT
    CY62148DV30LL-70ZSXIT
    CY62148EV30LL-55SXIT

    CY62148?V30LL will return the following:
    CY62148EV30LL-45ZSXIT
    CY62148DV30LL-70ZSXIT
    CY62148EV30LL-55SXIT

    Implementing even just one of these 2 wildcard features would be a major help for us. Thanks for your excellent service, I use it almost every day!

  13. Send notification when distibutor has inventory for item

    re: Notifications

    I'm a buyer at a contract manufacturer. I would like to be notified when a distributor has inventory on a specific item. You should allow customer to maintain a list of items of interest and be notified via email when anyone has stock. Better yet - let us specify the distributors we want to track stock for this item through. My company tries to work with a limited set of distributors (Avnet, Arrow, TTI, etc..)
