Cool Site Award
Dear Mr Ganswijk,
Congratulations on being awarded five stars by Anbar Computing Cool Sites.

Anbar Electronic Intelligence has been providing to more traditionally
published material since 1961.
Our specialist reviewers evaluate every site on five key criteria; style,
structure, ease of use, quality of information and usefulness to the
practitioner. Every site receives a quality rating of between one and five
As an additional accolade, the Chip Directory has been added to Anbar
Electronic Intelligence Managment Cool Sites as the December Hardware Cool

Congratulations once again on an excellent site. I hope that the addition
of this award will raise your profile as effectively as it has other

Chip Directory Review
This site contains numerically and functionally ordered chip lists, chip
pinouts and lists of chip manufacturers, manufacturers of controller
embedding tools, electronics books, CD-ROMs, magazines, WWW sites
and related information. The first two things to note about it are that it has
obviously been professionally designed and that there are a large number
of mirror sites in different parts of the world, with guidance on accessing
them. Then, when you have chosen the right mirror (and the home site
listed here seemed to be reacting quite fast), and you have transferred to
the main page, almost the first thing you see is a search box to find the chip
you are interested in. There are also what are effectively indexes organized
in different ways by, for example, family, function, name, number, pinouts,
prefixes and postfixes. There is also a section 'How to get more data about
a chip, once you found it here?' [sic], a questions forum and much other
related information, including links to manufacturers. The presentation is
clear and the download time fast. Not so much 'chips with everything' as
'everything about chips'!

Links2Go Key Resource Award
Congratulations! Your page has been selected to receive a
Links2Go Key Resource award in the Electronics topic
(If you received a previous email from us, sorry! We had
a little snafu in the topic name).
The Links2Go Key Resource award is both exclusive and objective. Fewer
than one page in one thousand will ever be selected for
inclusion. Further, unlike most awards that rely on the subjective
opinion of "experts," many of whom have only looked at tens or
hundreds of thousands of pages in bestowing their awards, the Links2Go
Key Resource award is completely objective and is based on an analysis
of millions of web pages. During the course of our analysis, we
identify which links are most representative of each of the thousands
of topics in Links2Go, based on how actual page authors, like
yourself, index and organize links on their pages. In fact, the Key
Resource award is so exclusive, even we don't qualify for it (yet ;)!
