Fairchild Semiconductor introduces Smart Search, a Web-based search engine that simultaneously searches multiple integrated databases on the company's Web site, providing design engineers easy access to new products, cross reference data, technical literature, obsolete products, application notes and other vital information. Other search mechanisms on today’s market require keywords to be individually entered into various cross-reference and product information databases. Unlike this time-consuming, hit-and-miss process, Smart Search allows customers and other interested individuals to type keywords into one comprehensive search tool for fast, streamlined results including the top five parametrics, new product announcements and application-related products.
Fairchild's Smart Search also provides a session-specific bill of material (BOM) functionality, allowing visitors to find and add products to a list that can be easily exported into a spreadsheet format and e-mailed. This functionality creates an easy way for customers to save, distribute and analyze the results of individual bills of material. Smart Search can be accessed at the company’s Web site.
