 Cover shortages and keep your production lines running by using MyArrow’s Part Search Cross Tool. 

Item out of stock? Arrow makes it easy for you to cover shortages by providing part crosses for products that are temporarily unavailable. This visibility allows you to plan for how to deal with parts that are experiencing sourcing or lifecycle issues.  

What are Part Crosses?

A part cross is a suggestion about another product that may be a good substitute for the product you are looking at. In the world of electronics, parts crosses are important because some components can be used interchangeably with other components, even if they might be from different manufacturers or have different pricing. The purpose of this parts cross tool is to highlight suitable alternatives so that you’re able to make the most informed sourcing decisions.


Prevents Shortages by providing alternative choices for parts that are temporarily unavailable. 

Saves Time by assembling all relevant data into a compact, easy-to-use format.
