Datasheet search engine SupplyFrame has launched a new manufacturer directory geared toward design engineers and electronic component purchasing professionals. The directory, accessible at, includes product and contact information for electronic component manufacturers, a list of authorized distributors and full part catalogs.

SupplyFrame is offering a free listing in the directory to all electronic component manufacturers to enable them to showcase their wares and increase their search engine rankings in the process. According to the company, SupplyFrame attracts more than two million design engineers to its site each month.

This new directory should be a nice addition to SupplyFrame's business. SupplyFrame is a datasheet search engine that is used by engineers to find technical information that supports product design decisions. The company provides electronic component information from authorized suppliers. The directory will just provide another resource for engineers to help them accomplish their goals and should help make SupplyFrame an even more vital source of information for them. It will be interesting to see if this is just the beginning of an entire suite of services SupplyFrame will offer the engineering community.
