Englewood, CO (PRWEB) March 8, 2011
PartMiner WorldWide Inc., a leading independent distributor of electronic components for more than 17 years, is now providing free end-of-life (EOL) notices to customers that purchase electronic components from PartMiner.
The powerful free service reviews previous quotes and orders from a customer and compares customers’ part numbers to EOL notices received in PartMiner’s CAPS™ (Computer Assisted Product Selection) database. Customers are alerted to the possible need for a last-time buy or redesign if they are still using that component.
The EOL service helps PartMiner component customers be aware of potential disruption of supply due to lifecycle issues. Notification of buyers is an extended application of the powerful obsolescence management provided by the CAPS Component Data tools.
The CAPS database now covers over 170 million electronic components and more than 1,800 active manufacturers with historical data on over 3,000 manufacturers. This high-integrity database and toolset provides lifecycle forecasts, alerts when the status changes on components, and easy methods to select alternate components for designs.
PartMiner’s CAPS (Computer Assisted Product Selection) component data provides design and component engineers the precise information they need to select electronic components. CAPS helps reduce design costs, solve obsolescence problems, and ensure environmental compliance.
CAPS provides manufacturer and core part information, parametric data, military data, and advises on cross-referenced replacements and life-cycle forecasts. Use CAPS to cleanse and manage Bill of Materials, receive automatic alerts about changes to any of your electronic components, and enhance your existing business and engineering tools.
