Did you ever experience a last-minute change to your design? Or did you have to rewrite the whole BOM and update all the line-entries with distirbutor prices? Then you know how truly cumbersome and timeconsuming it is. This is why we built Live BOM. A real-time algorithm that queries all of our preferred distributors (which spans over 6 million total available parts) and automatically calculates optimized prices for your desired quantities and respective availabilities. This makes calculating the BOM’s price as easy as pie. When documented properly with your design application, Live BOM even becomes more powerful, as all components will be automagically assigned. No more effort needed (it literally takes seconds).
With today’s announcement, we are thrilled to make Live BOM even more powerful. We are officially integrating the whole catalogue of Würth Electronics (making it the fifth supported distributor).
Why Würth Electronics? It’s plain and simple: Their documentation is amazing. How will the component behave in my circuit? What is the optimal footprint? Will it physically fit into the case? Their well documented components with simulation models let you design with confidence, and if any questions arise, their excellent support will leave no question unanswered. And thanks to direct sourcing, we can offer the entire Würth catalogue at amazing low prices, so you are not limited to components stocked at major distributors anymore. Together, we aim to make developers’ lives easier.
Making hardware less hard is what we strive for and that means working everyday to make yor life easier and get your designs faster to market. With this integration we have taken a further next step and are looking forward to seeing what you do with it! Upload your project today to see this in action!
And with that,
