DMTL have developed an online cross-reference tool for engineers and buyers to find alternative resistors.
How are the alternatives found?
As fully franchised distributors, DMTL have worked closely with their manufacturing partners to find alternatives for resistors that may be sole sourced, suffer from extended lead times or are, simply, too expensive.
Which manufacturers are alternatives available for?
At it's conception, DMTL have focused on Resistor brands and the cross reference tool will find alternatives parts for products from ATE, Arcol, Bourns, Caddock, Cyntec, EBG, Futaba, Huntingdon Vishay, Isabellenhutte, Kamaya, KOA, KRAH-RWI, Micron, Modulohm/Danotherm, Ohmite, Panasonic, Phonix, Powerton, Pulse, R.G. Allen, Ralec, RCD, Riedon, ROHM, Royal Ohm, Steward, Sumida, Susumu, TA-I, TDK, TOKO, TT Electronics, BI Technologies, IRC, Welwyn Components, TE Connectivity, Tyco, Meggitt, Vishay, Vitrohm, Walsin and Yageo.
With plans to extend this across more Resistor brands and to begin to include Capacitor brands
How do I use the Cross Reference Tool?
Simply select the manufacturer of the part for which you are looking to find an alternative, then begin typing the series type or part number and let the tool do the rest!
Once matched, you can download the datasheet, add to your basket to request samples or ask for more information such as price and availability.
