Do you have lifecycle information for parts?

Modified on Thu, 29 Sep 2022 at 01:04 PM

On the supply side, lifecycle information is presented as aspecattribute. Here is an example query:

query LifecycleSpec {
  supSearchMpn(q: "LM339", limit: 2) {
    results {
      part {
        mpn
        specs {
          attribute {
            id
            name
            shortname
          }
          displayValue
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

In the response you will see the following, noting that the shortname field name can be used to extract this output on the client side.

              {
                "attribute": {
                  "id": "910",
                  "name": "Lifecycle Status",
                  "shortname": "lifecyclestatus"
                },
                "displayValue": "Production (Last Updated: 2 years ago)"
              },

Both the current lifecycle status itself and the date when the status was updated are returned.

The lifecycle status has a homogenized value that could have been sourced from the part's manufacturer, a distributor, or a third party. It will be one of the following:

  • EOL (End of life)

  • NRND (Not recommended for new designs)

  • New

  • Obsolete

  • Production


To filter on value the query can be supplemented to include one of the values above:


query LifecycleSpec {
  supSearchMpn(q: "LM339", limit: 2, filters: {lifecyclestatus: "Production"}) {
    results {
      part {
        mpn
        specs {
          attribute {
            id
            name
            shortname
          }
          displayValue
        }
      }
    }
  }
}



Manufacturer lifecycle


Where available we also supply the manufacturer's life cycle status. This is a raw value received directly from the manufacturer, which limits its usefulness when comparing data across manufacturers. An example of this is shown below, note the short name field value of "manufacturerlifecyclestatus".


              {
                "attribute": {
                  "id": "942",
                  "name": "Manufacturer Lifecycle Status",
                  "shortname": "manufacturerlifecyclestatus"
                },
                "displayValue": "DISCONTINUATION OF DELIVERY (Last Updated: 6 hours ago)"
              },
