Is my work saved?
With every order you will receive your BOM as an Excel sheet by email.
If you have not yet ordered and you may want to process your BOM in several steps, also on different computers and at different times, this is also possible.
For this purpose, we will automatically save your component list during processing and then for 30 days.
If you have not completed your BOM and have had to cancel it, this is not a problem!
Simply drag your data back into the corresponding drag & drop fields on our website or in the configurator and your BOM will be loaded again after the upload.
Now you can continue working from where you had left off.
Attention: The BOM can only be restored if the file is unchanged.
How do I provide components?
It is possible for you to also supply the components for your order.
Please ensure to provide the correct components in packaging which is suitable for automatic machine placement.
The components must also have a lead of > 24 mm, unfortunately we cannot accept individual components supplied as “snippets“.
You can also edit the component selected and change how the component will be supplied at any time by using the using the “Overview“ window.
In the field “Comments“ you have the possibility to send us further important information.
- An assembly aid (e. g. cap) is absolutely necessary for
plugs, sockets and pin headers
- In the case of components that you have provided, you must also ensure that they are properly packaged and have been stored and delivered in a dry state (see
IPC / JEDEC J-STD-020D; IPC / JEDEC J-STD-033B.1).
With older components, where this is not the case, it can e.g. lead to problems with the solder joints.
- The assigned components are assigned using the MAGIC-BOM, so please label the packaging of the components with the appropriate description from the “References“, “Package“ and “Value“ fields in the “Component information“ section of the “Component details“ field (e. g: C5, C7, C8, C10, C11), C / CO805 / 100nF).
Why do I have to pay a superset?
This question arises from time to time.
“Superset quantity” refers to the excess components that we cannot use, but have to charge for.
Automatic pick and place machines require a certain lead in the belts that contain the components in order to be able to feed the components into the machine.
As an example, an IC component is a relatively large sized component and an excess of one component would be acceptable for machine set-up.
In the case of a resistor 0402, the number of excess components required is higher because there are relatively many small components contained in the component belt.
This lead, along with the components, will unfortunately no longer be usable after assembly.
How do I optimize the component search?
If you don‘t get a result you can try to change the entered terms, e.g. by changing the spelling of the term:
The fields “Package“ and “Value“ must have a readable value such as e. g. “10 nF“ and no terms such as “capacitor“ or similar component names.
Please also note that we only purchase components from certain distributors, your component may not be provided by this distributor.
However, you can get alternative components displayed by our search if you enter the corresponding designations in the input fields.
