DigiKey Fetch Tool helps you when working on bill of material (BOM) for your projects. This simple Python script will fetch all relevant information about a part (Manufacturer, Manufacturer Part Number etc) and allow you to paste/type that information into any application using global hotkeys. This saves a significant amount of time by removing the need to do many alt+tab and copy&paste operation to copy information from your distributor’s website.
Making a BOM (bill of material) for projects and keeping them up to date is really important. But also it is a tedious task that few people enjoy.
In effort to improve workflow when creating new components or updating existing ones, I have create a Python script that will fetch all important data for a component that you might want to use.
This tool has greatly reduced number of alt+tab / copy & paste juggling from my creating/maintaining BOM workflow, and I hope it does the same for you.
