FIIN XREF and .MIL Secrets

  1. Is there a crossref between the Federal Inventory Number and parts such
    as semiconductors? Maybe I should say, I figure that there such a
    thing, but is it available to the public, and not just gummint? I
    haven't done any searches for such a xref, mainly because it's probably
    buried somewhere, as in the following.

    Also, I seldom if ever see a .MIL website pop up in a Google search. Is
    that because there is some kind of confidential agreement between Google
    and the .MIL web hierarchy that they will not spider .MIL sites and add
    those to their search database? Seems so, anyway.

  2. Do you have specific part numbers? I have a small database form
    surplus parts that were still in the moisture proof packing.

    The military sites probably include the meta tag requesting the site
    not be crawled by the search software.

  3. Nothing in particular. I thought it would be helpful when I encounter
    certain lots of parts on Ebay. Like this one comes in handy once in

    I've found that some Ebay sellers try to inflate the value of their
    parts by comparing them to ECG/NTE parts, which obviously isn't valid
    because the NTE part may be 'equal or better', which means that the
    xref'd part may be substantially below the NTE specs, actually. Another
    handy one is the Heathkit Xref. I also had some Radio Shack to JEDEC
    numbers written down somewhere.
    Ah, IC. But that would exclude _all_ searches, including the ones done
    by .MIL users. Maybe they check to see if the search engine is .MIL or

  4. Yes, they have a nice website.

    I am collecting that kind of information from my stack of Heathkit
    manuals. Some have more than one OEM cross when the part was used over
    a number of years and models so it doesn't hurt to know them all.

    Its my understanding that the searchbots can ignore the request not
    to crawl a site.
