TI BOM & cross reference tool tutorial

This tutorial page is designed to help you find valuable information, and highlight various features of the new TI BOM & cross reference tool.

What is the TI BOM & cross reference tool?

The TI BOM & cross reference tool is powerful sourcing and cross reference resource. It allows you to:

  • Obtain instant TI cross reference part information for non-TI part searches

  • Access parametric information for TI parts, as well as non-TI part parametric comparisons when available

  • Check TI inventory and price data for a single part, parts list, or entire Bill of Materials (BOM)

  • View TI datasheets for all your submitted parts, from one central location

  • Find out if your parts are valid for quoting or ordering, and fix the invalid ones

  • Simple one-click ordering of TI parts through the TI store or our authorized distributors

  • See valuable part and pricing details to help you make the best decision.

  • Easily export, share or print your results.

Parts Analysis and Procurement

The TI BOM & cross reference tool provides a simple, easy to read dashboard where you can view all the parts in your BOM, find equivalent TI cross reference parts, download datasheets, view and compare parametrics, see detailed part information, and even buy directly from the TI store.

Below is an overview of the TI BOM & cross reference tool dashboard (BOM upload results). Click on the blue hotspots for additional information.

Engineering

For engineers building reference designs or development boards, knowing early if a BOM is sourceable can prevent time consuming redesigns down the line. After uploading a BOM, use the list summary section to quickly identify which parts need further attention. From here, you can easily filter parts and to take any necessary action in finalizing your BOM.

In the event of unknown or misspelled part number entries, the Did you mean? window will appear, providing a list of suggested part number matches based on various search algorithms. You may enter as few as 3 characters of a part number, and our tool will help find the best possible matches. Select the part number you wish to see equivalent TI cross reference results for by clicking the “View” button.

The cross reference parts window displays a list of equivalent TI cross reference parts for the previously submitted or selected matched part. Here you can view cross reference codes for equivalent TI parts, download datasheets, and check stock and pricing for available parts.


In addition, to see more details of each part, you can view parametrics, and even compare parametrics between your selected part and the equivalent TI cross reference parts:

How-to Guide

Enter a partial or full part number in the search bar on the main tool page, and click “Search”.

You may be asked to confirm the part you are looking for from a list of parts matching your entry, as shown in the Did you mean? window. Select the part number you wish to see equivalent TI cross reference results for by clicking the “View” button.

In the cross reference window that appears, you will see any equivalent TI cross reference parts that correspond to the selected matched part from the previous screen. Here you can download the TI datasheets, view part inventory and pricing information, as well as part status.

You may also have the ability to view parametrics for the TI part, or even compare parametrics between the selected part searched, and the TI cross reference part you choose. Simply click the Parametrics icon, or the “Compare” button to see more. Once you’ve found a desired TI part, click the “Select” button to view more details for that part. (In some cases, the “Select” button may be replaced by a TI generic part number, or a comparable product category, which will link to our applicable product pages on TI.com.)

Once selected, the TI part will display on the main screen with additional information, and order options from the TI store or other distributors, if available. Additional information about the part can also be found by clicking the “View part details” button as well.

Create new list

Clicking on the “Create new list” button from the main tool page will open a new window where you can name the list you would like to create.

After clicking “Create list”, the tool will open where you can manually enter a list of parts you would like to add and see part information and potential crosses for. After entering your list of parts, click the “Continue” button and the tool will begin processing your entries.

Once your part numbers have been processed, the results from the tool will appear in the list.

NOTE: Please take the necessary actions for the following results, to finalize your BOM for sharing or exporting.

  • If a TI part number was submitted, the TI part will be shown in the list with applicable order information, datasheet and parametrics links, and other part details. No further action is needed at this point.
  • Equivalent TI cross reference part available… - a TI cross reference part was found.


    You can click the “Accept” button to choose the suggested part, or view other cross reference parts, by clicking on the "Show xx more cross reference parts" link, if available.


    Once an equivalent TI cross reference part has been accepted, the new TI part will be shown in the list with applicable order information, datasheet and parametrics links, and other part details.


  • No equivalent TI cross reference part available - the tool recognizes the searched part, but there is no equivalent TI cross reference part available in our database.


    However, when clicking the “View” button, a new window will appear where you can confirm the part you’ve searched for, by clicking the “Select” button, to view a link to a comparable TI product family page (such as “Operational amplifiers”), where you can research more to determine if TI has a part for you.



  • Suggested part match:… - there was not an exact match to the part number you searched, but the tool found a similarly matched part that may be what you’re looking for.


    Clicking on the “View” button, will open the Did you mean? window listing details about the suggested part and other possible matches. From here, you can confirm the part you wish to see equivalent TI cross reference parts for, by clicking the “View” button in this window.


    Once clicked, the TI cross reference window will then appear displaying all applicable TI cross reference parts.


    Once you have determined which equivalent TI cross reference part best fits your needs, click the “Select” button to choose that part, and it will be shown in the list with applicable order information, datasheet and parametrics links, and other part details, replacing the original “Suggested part match:…” result. No further action is needed at this point.


  • No part data or equivalent TI cross reference part available - the part number entered was not found in our database. This result may occur if the part number was entered incorrectly, or contains extra characters, in which case you can reduce the number of characters to possibly find a match, by simply clicking on “Fix part number.” This result may also occur if the part number entered is a valid part number, but is associated to a type of part that TI does not manufacture, such as passives, resistors, etc.

Upload BOM

Clicking on the “Upload BOM” button form the main tool page will open a new window where you choose a file from your desktop to upload to the tool. Once selected, this will begin the initial upload to the tool.

You will then be asked to confirm the data from the BOM by entering a name for the BOM and ensure the mapping of your data from the BOM is correct, before proceeding.

Once you have named your BOM and confirmed the mapping is correct, click on the “Process BOM” button. At this time, the tool will begin processing your BOM and display the results of each part number entered, in the list.

NOTE: Please take the necessary actions for the following results, to finalize your BOM for sharing or exporting.

  • If a TI part number was submitted, the TI part will be shown in the list with applicable order information, datasheet and parametrics links, and other part details. No further action is needed at this point.
  • Equivalent TI cross reference part available… - a TI cross reference part was found.


    You can click the “Accept” button to choose the suggested part, or view other cross reference parts, by clicking on the "Show xx more cross reference parts" link, if available.


    Once an equivalent TI cross reference part has been accepted, the new TI part will be shown in the list with applicable order information, datasheet and parametrics links, and other part details.


  • No equivalent TI cross reference part available - the tool recognizes the searched part, but there is no equivalent TI cross reference part available in our database.


    However, when clicking the “View” button, a new window will appear where you can confirm the part you’ve searched for, by clicking the “Select” button, to view a link to a comparable TI product family page (such as “Operational amplifiers”), where you can research more to determine if TI has a part for you.

Add parts to list

At the bottom of your existing list, there is an option to add a part number and quantity for any additional parts you wish to add to the existing list. Simply add a desired part number and quantity (optional), and then click the “Add new part” button to view you newly added part in the list above. You may also add parts to your existing list through other pages in the tool as well, by clicking the “Add part to list” button.

Custom export

When creating a new list or uploading a BOM, you will have the opportunity to export your parts list to a .xlsx, .csv, or .tsv file, with up to 20 columns of data for each part.

NOTE: In order to export your parts list, you must first finalize the results of each part/cross in your list. See the Create new list and Upload BOM sections above for instructions on how to finalize each result so you have a fully processed BOM, ready for exporting or sharing.
