Due to the small size of most SMD components, manufacturers are not able to write the full part number on the case. They use instead a marking code typically composed of a combination of 2 or 3 letters or digits. When repairing an unknown electronic board, it becomes so difficult to know what is the exact type of a given component. This database allows to quickly find the part number of a SMD component when you have only the marking code.
