Just a comment, that some of these services require a license (like Google Scholar)

Good site, Duane. thanks for recommending it. Another excellent writing reference, although in print, is "The Elements of Style," by Strunk and White.

findchips.com is pretty great.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned findchips.com. I use it all the time to find which distributors have parts, and if a part numer (or partial part number) pops up, the link takes you to the distributor page that generally has the datasheet.

If this were truly set up as an independent source of information for engineers, why do we have to register? That the usual method for email harvesting.

I used to search for parts on Google, but that's where I found all of my spam. I don't recall the sites, but I always seemed to get links that pretended to have the info, but just linked to other sites that linked to other sites... Then I gave up on Google. Over the weekend, I've been experimenting with DigiKey, Datasheets and Mouser - running parts from my BOMs through. I did find an electrolytic to not be on Datasheets and a few parts to not be on Mouser. I tend to select parts based on what I can buy at DK, so I would expect to find all of the parts there. Another site that I find quite useful is: http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/errors.html It's about grammar, not technology, but, though I value function over form, form does help with good communications. This site covers all of those little things like "affect vs. effect:" that I ignored while back in school.

I have found both DigiKey and Mouser work really well for me. I have used Datasheets.com and was not impressed. Sorry have to agree with others here on this one.

Mouser is where I always go first for parts and datasheets. For live pricing and availability when I don't find it in Mouser, I use Octopart, a specialised parts search engine that gives you real time pricing from several vendors on the same component. The hard work of finding obsolete parts info I leave it to Bing.

Thanks for publishing this list Kristin. I've used several of these sites, but there are others I had never heard of. Like you, I also have had good results with Google scholar to weed out everything that is *not* the journal article or academic publication I'm looking for.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
