Not for sure if it is up to date or not. Might be a few parts that have a replacement needed. Can see recommended replacement part numbers on the wiki.

Hourly that will help a little.

To use an existing BOM, someone has to provide the link they create after creating their BOM and using the Mouser tool to "share" it. This shoots out a unique link.

To create a link, you first have to have an account and be logged in. Simply choose your parts and instead of adding to your cart, you add to "New Project" and it will start creating the BOM for you. Edit the name as you wish and keep adding parts - it basically looks exactly like a cart but you can save this away and/or share it with others (there is a button to share). Nice thing is you can bring that BOM up and click "Order 10 of these" and it will dump everything in your cart.
