Default printed datasheets

I realize I can get pretty much any datasheet for any part from any manufacturer online for free.

What about a single book? I would love to have that info in a physical book that I could flip through and compare. If even one of the major semiconductor makers had this it would be awesome. I imagine National or Fairchild or On would have to have this somewhere.

This brings me to another question. For design purposes, can I read, say, Fairchild's datasheet for a given part number, and be reasonably safe applying that info to , say, a nation Semiconductor part? In other words, would a book from only one manufacturer be sufficient?

Manufacturers used to do just this, though not with competing parts obviously. However, this all died out as soon as PDF and the Internet came along.

As for cross referencing parts, it is generally safe to do this, but if you are relying on tight specs then you should check the actual part you are using.

Data from one manufacturer should be almost the same as another.

You can certainly download a SEMICONDUCTOR DATABOOK from internet.
My search gives some hits for such a book from National.
I am sure there are several such books via torrent to download.

I do wish they had domain experienced hadware design engineers deeply involved, with veto power, of web based parts selction table development - some are done, and too often redone, by people with no clue as to how the parts work, are applied or selected, which types of parameters should be displayed, how to make multi-level priority orderings

most of the major parts manufacturers have changed these on their websites too frequently - and often gone backwards in useability

gotta love when your 1st level, only choice is to select the manufactures own marketing TM named process/family - now do you want a Cool, Hyper, I,II,III mesh, trench, stripe...
