BOM API Integration Enhancement

By: Joseph Lee on September 22nd, 2023

In the world of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and PCB Design, efficiency is key. Every second counts when you’re managing complex projects with a multitude of components. That’s why SiliconExpert’s latest feature update is a game-changer. We’ve introduced push capabilities to complement our existing pull capabilities, allowing you to seamlessly integrate your PLM or Design software with SiliconExpert’s expansive component database.


Get Seamless Push/Pull Integration With Robust Data

There is a fundamental challenge faced by engineers, designers, and product managers alike. Previously, users could pull data from SiliconExpert’s vast component database into their PLM, Designer, or custom internal proprietary tools, providing valuable insights. However, the user would only get a small taste of the data offered by SiliconExpert. To unlock the full potential, the BOM would have to be downloaded from their internal software, cleaned up, and uploaded into SiliconExpert P5 in order to see more information. If changes are made to the BOM, this entire process would have to be duplicated, creating time-consuming work.

The process of manually adding Bill of Materials (BOMs) and new parts back into SiliconExpert’s web platform was a time-consuming, error-prone task. This disconnect often led to discrepancies between the data in their design software and SiliconExpert, causing inefficiencies and potentially costly errors.

This update allows PLM/design/proprietary software users with access to our API to see the same BOM and any new updates automatically within our web application.


How It Works:

  • Simple Configuration – SiliconExpert’s API integration is designed with simplicity in mind. Setting it up is a breeze and our customer’s PLM, Designer, or even custom proprietary software can be configured to communicate with SiliconExpert’s API.
  • Real-Time Updates – Once configured, any changes or additions made in your software are automatically synchronized with SiliconExpert’s P5 web application. Users can log in and instantly see their BOMs and new parts without the need for manual data entry.
  • Accurate, Comprehensive Data – SiliconExpert is the largest electronics component database in the world, with over 1.3 billion MPNs registered in the system, and complete data on nearly 80 million parts. Our system of machine learning and computer vision to collect data, as well as our engineers who validate, run QA, and maintain relationships with suppliers, means accurate and reliable data for our customers.
