The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) Electronic Commerce Center (EC Center) has established standards for parts classification and description of characteristics and specifications, and has compiled these into a dictionary for various parts classes. This so-called ECALS dictionary corpus has been made publicly available free of charge. Based on the ECALS dictionary, the JEITA/EC Center has established a description format for exchanging technical information about electronic components, semiconductors, and other parts among companies, and also has developed the “ECALS Data Creation Assist Tool” to facilitate the exchange of ECALS parts information according to this standard. The tool is available free of charge from JEITA/EC Center, as one of the measures aimed at promoting the exchange of technical information about parts among companies.
