General Search Tips

 
 

You can search for new and used parts at NxSemi.com in three easy ways: Quick Search, Advanced Search, and Multiple Item Inventory Match.

 
 

Quick Search, Advanced Search and Multiple Item Inventory Match all search our entire parts inventory. Quick Search allows you to search for up to five items by Part Number, OEM, or Description. Advanced Search allows you to apply additional search filters to refine your results. Multiple Item Inventory Match allows you to run your high-volume inventory search list against our entire inventory.

 
 
  Searching by Part Number
Enter a complete or partial number for the part you are looking for. The search engine will pull all inventory that contains the part numbers entered. If you are unsure of the part number and require assistance, call Customer Service at 1-208-362-7200, 8am-5pm (MST) / Monday-Friday. You do not need to enter a part number if you prefer to search by OEM or Description.
  Searching by OEM
We provide you with a pull-down menu for all OEMs currently in our system. By selecting an OEM, our search engine will pull all inventory currently in stock for that OEM unless a part number is specified.
  Searching by Description
The description search identifies all parts relating to the key word(s) you specify. For example, if you search "Block" with no part number or OEM information entered, the search results page will display all parts that contain the word "Block" in the description. Please note that if you choose to search by description, your search results may be extensive.
  Advanced Search
Refine your search criteria for better results using the Advanced Search function. This function enables you to further enhance the accuracy of your results by specifying inventory location, part condition (New or Savers), and whether or not the inventory is a new arrival.
  Multiple Item Inventory Match
To run your multiple-item search list against our entire inventory database, send us your search list in Excel .xls format following our Wish List template. We will upload your multiple-item search list to the Wish List page of your account within 48 hours of receipt. If you do not have a free NxSemi.com account, we will create one for you.
  Formatting Your Search
It is not necessary to use any special characters in formatting your search. Simply enter the number sequence or words you are looking for. Quotation marks, plus signs, or Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) will be ignored by the search engine. In the Quick Search and Advanced Search options, do not enter multiple part numbers in the same field. Please search for only one item per line.
 
 

Quick Search

 
 
1. Go to the search inventory link at the top of most pages on NxSemi.com.
2. Type the desired part number, OEM, or description in the text field as described in the General Search Tips. You can search up to five parts at one time using the Quick Search function.
3. Select All, New OEM, or Savers from the pull-down menu to indicate the type of inventory you want to search, then click on the "Search" button.
4. The search results will display a list of parts that best match your search criteria, arranged from top to bottom in matching order. You can sort results by part number, OEM, Description, Location, or Condition by clicking on the column titles.
 
 

Advanced Search

 
 

The Advanced Search form allows you to refine your search in one or more fields. Conducting a search using more than one field may narrow your results to the exact part or parts you are looking for.

 
 

Search by Part Number, OEM, Description, Location, Condition, or New Inventory.

 
 
1. Click on the Advanced Search link at the top of the Quick Search or Search Results page.
2. Type the desired Part Number, OEM, and Description in the text field as described in the General Search Tips above.
3. You can enter information into one or more fields, but it is not required. The more specific the information you enter, the more exact your search results may be.
4. If desired, you can narrow your search further by selecting an option from one or more of the drop-down menus or boxes: Inventory Location, Condition, or New Inventory.
    Inventory Location -- narrows your search to the inventory location that most closely matches your selection.
    Condition -- narrows your search to only parts that are New OEM or Savers (slightly used or new, not in original packaging).
    New Inventory -- narrows your search to only inventory that has become available in the last 90 days.
5. When you have entered all relevant information, click on the "Search" button to start your search.
 
 

Multiple Item Inventory Match

 

If your search contains more than 50 items, the Wish List page allows you to run a multiple item list against our entire inventory without entering items individually. The Wish List will save your search list to allow you to run future inventory queries against the same list.

 
1. Email us your multiple item search list or usage list in Excel .xls format to Wish List template (OEM, Part Number, Description, Quantity).
2. Upon receipt of your multiple item search list, we will review the list for accuracy and upload it to your account within 48 hours. If you do not have a free NxSemi.com account, we will create one for you.
3. You can access your search list by clicking on the “Wish List” link at the top of most pages and logging into your account. From the My Account page, click on “Manage Wish List” link.
4. If we have created a new account for you, we will provide you with a temporary User ID and Password. Upon logging in, click on “Change Password” from the My Account screen to create a personalized password.
5. On the Wish List page, you can filter the list by Part Number or OEM to display a narrowed selection. You can also sort the list by Part Number, OEM, or Description by clicking on the column titles.
6. To add additional parts to your wish list, click on the “Add Individual Items to List” link and follow the instructions. To upload more than 50 new items to your existing list, email us your multiple item search list at wishlist@nxsemi.com.
7. Remove unwanted items by selecting the box to the left of the part number, then click on the “Remove: Checked Items” link at the top of the lists.
8. Select the items you wish to run against our inventory by checking the box to the left of the Part Number. To select all items on the list, click the “select all” link.
9. Click the “Check Inventory” button to run your list against our entire inventory database for matches.
 
 

Search Results

 

The search results page displays information about the parts(s) that match your query. If the search engine is unable to find any exact matches for your query, the page will display information about parts that may be close to what you were looking for. Click on the part number to view product details and photos, if available.

Search results are presented in top matching order. You can also sort your results by part number, OEM, description, price, or location by clicking on the column title.

The list of results is too long. How can I narrow this list?
You can narrow the list of search results by clicking on the "Advanced Search" link at the top of most search pages and entering more detailed search criteria.

The list of results is too short. How can I get more results?
If you have entered too much search information, it is likely that the search engine was not able to find many parts that met all your search criteria. You can remove or change some criteria by clicking the “New Search” button from the Search Results page.

I didn't get any results. What did I do wrong?

 
  Nothing. It may be that there are no parts that match your search criteria. This may be the case if you have tried to search with an incorrect part number. Retry your search by OEM or description, or call Customer Service at 1-208-362-7200, 8am-5pm (MST) / Monday-Friday, for assistance.
  Re-check your search. You may have mis-typed your search criteria, or put search information in the wrong field.
  Broaden your search. You may have entered too much search information. It is likely that the search engine was unable to find any parts that met all your search criteria. Try removing one or more filters, or use only one search field. Or try using fewer words in the description.
