It should be someone's job to look for prices, etc but maybe the engineer can design based on some specs and someone else matches that with actual devices on the market.

Seems like a waste of resources since it could be done by some other person, if they knew enough about it, and the engineer could spend his time in something more useful.

The website reallyhelps in shortening that time, though.

Normalization sounds clever but is not workable with so many variables. it doesn't work because it is like summarizing... no need to buy häagen-dazs ice cream because wal-mart basics has similar nutritional content and the same flavor. Maybe that's a bad example.
 
My advice is to look on the manufacturer websites first then maybe authorized distributors. There are several datasheet websites out that are great (datasheetcatalog.com, datasheetarchive.com, alldatasheet.com) but only use them as a last resort. and i really mean last resort. Manufacturer site first. Golden rule #1

More and more this kind of browsing automation allow more time for designers to design instead of hunting for specs.  Additional useful capability would be access to device models for use in circuit simulators.

Datasheets will really helpful when it's comes to design engineers they can reach out all the parts at a hand stretch. This will not only reduce the production time it will save their time.

I think the interface of the website is pretty neat. The content is divided properly and it's easy to find the relevant sections. This would certainly help the engineers to quickly look up for the desired content. In terms of performance, the site seems pretty efficient too. I tried searching for a few components and the search was extremely fast. I think it's a very valuable resource for engineers.

That's an interesting suggestion, Prabhakar. I agree with you on this. I think the pricing info and the comparison between prices should be there on the websites so that the engineers are able to pick the right components for use not only in terms of performance but also in terms of the ones that offer best value of money. Usually the pricing in companies is handled by non-technical people, but if the website can allow engineers to also have a look at that and make comparisons, it would be very useful.

Usually part of the design process is to find the right manufacturer and distributor of the component. Great that it can be done in one place.

Bolaji,

Thanks a lot for this article. I just visited the site and the site is pretty easy to browse. We can easily search different datasheets. I will definitely share this link with all my colleagues.

Probably alot of time if the marketing/sales/management teams are concerned with keeping costs down. That is in the case if the engineer does not already have a hookup in the distribution arena.
