List Your Inventory on is a free service to purchasing professionals, design engineers and anyone in need of electronic components price and availability information from franchised distributors. 

While other inventory aggregation sites may include data from sources that are not authorized by the manufacturer, ECIA works extensively on an ongoing basis to verify that price and availability data displayed on is only for products for which the distributors are authorized/franchised. This is why is the best source for searching the authorized channel for the electronic components you need.

To learn more about how to list your inventory, or to view our Terms of Use and other information related to participating on, please visit our documentation for participating distributors.

Member of the Week

Our Member of the Week is Powell Electronics! Powell Electronics is among the largest distributors of electronic components and value-added services. Our focus and expertise include electronic connectors, switches, sensors, and related electro-mechanical products. For over 75 years, they have brought a unique sense of purpose and vision to electronics distribution. 

Powell Electronics was founded in 1946 by Harold H. Powell, who was a Navy electronics technician during World War II. After the war, Harold started selling components from his garage in response to the burgeoning post-war demand for electronic parts. Since then, the company has established an unbroken record of success as a specialty components distributor.

Today, they are a national company with a global reach, representing the most respected manufacturers. Still a family-owned company, Powell Electronics continues to be guided by our founding principles of honesty, integrity, and ethical dealings, plus a sense of urgency for meeting our customers' needs. 

Powell Electronics has been a member for 66 years! ECIA thanks John Barrington, Ernie Schilling and the rest of the team for the years of service to councils and ECIA initiatives.
