  1. 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!

    • Offer SamacSys PCB schematic symbols and footprints.

      SamacSys syndicate the PCB library content, it would really enhance your site.

      • 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..)

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                  • 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?

                      • Internal PN Column

                        In a BOM there are parts with multiple suppliers/MPNs, it would be helpful to add a column in Findchips Pro for the internal part numbers.
                        Enable compare of multiple suppliers/MPNs in a internal part.

                            • 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.
