What's your preferred BOM format?

For the six months, I’ve been working on a platform that offers collaboration and version control specifically for hardware development. It’s called InventHub and is currently in public beta stage. You can view and diff designs visually, and it’s a git-based VCS.

I’d be a huge favour to know which BOM formats are preferred. Because I think, BOM generation and estimation, if automated and updated dynamically for each project, could also add great value to the development process.


Thank you for the inquiry. Quite an interesting tool.

Our BOM tools will accept several formats from .txt to .xlsx. The process is quite simple, a walk through is provided here: https://www.digikey.com/en/help/features-updates/bom-manager-tour
