I need a way to get chip and module PinOuts, Specs., & other info of the stuff I order and use.

What are YOUR favorite places to look to get this type of information?

Easy to possibly print data so I can have it at my finger tips?

I ordered a bunch of stuff from Banggood.com...Β  just got some of it...Β  They do not provide ANY additional info...Β  That I NEED...Β  πŸ™‚

Thank you in advance for your tips...Β  πŸ™‚Β  πŸ˜€

It is true that most sellers do not provide detailed information.Β 

From my experience, Google has never failed me in providing data sheets and other relevant details.

@hstaam, @joelyddon

It is true that Google is a good source of datasheets, but it is imperative that you only open up .pdf files. There are quite a few document suppositories that are trying to make a fast buck selling stuff that is free elsewhere on the internet.

One of my favourite sources of datasheets for ICs is "ti.com" i.e. Texas Instruments. SparkFun also seems to have quite a collection of datasheets for modules and sensors.

Just to kick off your datasheet library, I have uploaded a selection of datasheets I have already collected from various sources.

Please feel free to download and use.

well I use octopart ( https://octopart.com)

to find data sheets of all my components. It's also handy to find data sheets for components with specific values that you can buy later for a project. There's also other websites like mouser ( https://www.mouser.co.za) Β  or digi key ( https://www.digikey.co.za/ ) but I like octopart since it's easy to use.

I quite like Components101.com the selection is not huge, but the development board datasheets have a lot of useful extra notes and suggestions, like how to power a particular board. The pin out diagrams are really nicely done, with all the alternate functions of multi use pins in an easy to read format.

Example page for Arduino maker 1000:-

I do a google search and if I see a result from pinout.xyz I go with that.

It often has a lot more information especially with Raspberry Pi’s

I find these pinout charts very helpful. They list the equivalent Arduino IDE pin names for various chips.
