Welcome to CPPICS, Cal Poly IEEE’s part catalog system. This page contains all of the necessary information to use our catalog system. If you would like more help, you can chat with the Officer in Charge in the lower left hand corner (please note that your question may not be answered immediately).
To use CPPICS, you do not need to be credentialed. The parts catalog page contains all of the parts that IEEE currently has. The inventory that the website displays may not necessarily be representative of the current number of parts that is in stock. For each part, you can click ‘add to cart’ or ‘show details’. Some parts may have more images, datasheets, etc. available as well as distributor or manufacturer part numbers. You can also use CPPICS search to search our inventory of parts. Lastly, parts can be narrowed down by category (resistors, capacitors, transistors, etc.).
When you are ready to checkout, hover over ‘Parts’ in the menu and select ‘Cart’. Double check that all parts and quantities are correct, then select ‘Proceed to Checkout’. Enter your name, email (Cal Poly preferred) and phone number. Under ‘Order Notes’, please state if you are an IEEE member. That way, we can look up your information and calculate the total cost of your order. If you need a receipt (If you need reimbursement from the EE department, etc), then make sure to check ‘Yes’ for ‘Do you need a receipt’. You can always print out your order invoice, and the Officer in Charge will sign in when you have paid. Currently, cash on delivery is the only payment method, so make sure when you come to pick up your order, you bring enough cash to pay for it.
When you place your order, you will receive an email with all of the items that you ordered as well as an invoice. Once your order is fulfilled, you will receive a second email that says your order has been processed. At this point, you may come to the IEEE room (building 20, room 115) to pick up your order. Please have your order number handy.
