We usually don't have the chips in stock, so we can't help with small amounts. There is a minimum order between $100 and $300 depending on where you are and where the chips can be found and what they cost us. This is because of our transportation and banking costs to get the chips and send them to you.
First make sure at regular distributors that the chips are scarce indeed. Getting them via the first line channels may be a lot cheaper.
Never use hard-to-get chips for new designs! Ask the regular distributor or the manufacturer.
Fill in the amount (or several amounts) of chips you want. We really need to know that amount to make you a sensible offer. (I have built in a check in the form now...)
Make sure to respond quickly after you got an answer or the chips may have been bought by another company.
Fill in the complete chip number including the postfix which determines the packaging and speed etc. There is no use in looking for 4 MHz DIP's when you need 16 Mhz SMD's. ;-)
A copy of this form will be send to your email address (almost immediately).
You should get a reaction within a couple of days from my partners.
You can also send requests directly via
but please make sure you give all the info that we need and no we are not in Australia:
I'm in the Netherlands and the broker who helps me is in the USA.
Using the form above is a good way to help you fill in all the relevant details
of your request.
