Thank you for your interest in DesignFast™ participation
Hosting your components on DesignFast entails just a few essential factors:
- Defining a CSV or similar file for your components
- Determining how that file will be delivered and at the delivery cadence
- Accentuating your component data with a real-time API
1. CSV Ingestion File
For the ingestion file(s), we prefer a CSV that is UTF-8 encoded. The table below is a guideline for part data. You can find an example flat file here. Below are the must-have fields for ingesting your components; supplementary data improves the likelihood of engineers engaging with your part.
- Part Number
- Distributor Name
- Manufacturer Name
- Manufacturer Part Number
- Product URL
2. Delivery & Cadence
Design Fast delivery methods include (S)FTP servers, email transactions, white-listed object stores, and the like. Design Fast also supports picking up files on your infrastructure as well. When you define your delivery method, you must also specify the delivery cadence of the data.
3. Real-Time Data
After Design Fast starts to ingest your components, we can integrate your API to keep your pricing and stock up-to-date in real-time.
