Product Search API in Use

Our Product Search API is designed to give our partners access to the most up to date pricing, stock and product detail available. Our Stock levels and pricing are maintained in real-time giving you up to the minute, dependable data. This data is then supplemented with Product Descriptions, Product Images, Datasheets and other key information.

Since we launched our first API in 2009, the number of users has continued to grow. From well known industry partners, customers and various desktop applications. The following highlights a great example of how integrating product data from Newark, Farnell and element14 can really add value to your end users.

Eagle by CADSoft is a great example of adding value by integrating product data. Through the Product Search API (branded DesignLink), customers can find components that match their designs and build a parts list.

Eagle then displays the latest pricing, stock, RoHS status as well as Product Description and allows customers to pass this parts list into the Newark, Farnell or element14 shopping baskets.

In addition, Eagle supports users who have special pricing with Premier Farnell to be able to add their details into the application to receive back their own contract pricing.
