Topic: Best place to buy parts? (Read 2 times) previous topic - next topic


I really like these guys: http://www.taydaelectronics.com
Low prices on small volume (even QTY 1) on things like LEDs, caps, diodes, transistors, shift registers,
resistors, temperature sensors, etc...
Not the largest inventory/variety of parts, but the shipping costs are much lower than most.

If you add Avnet Express you have a representative from basically every major electronics distributor in the business.  I worked as an intern this summer sourcing electronics components, so the question where do you buy parts was basically my entire job.  I often dealt with the higher volume branches of these same companies, but the parts they carry are usually the same.  If you know what you are looking for one of these folks will have it.  If you happen to work where I did, even if they don't have it they will bend over backwards to get it, but that is another story. 

If you don't know exactly what you are looking for I would stick to the hobbyist sites, as they generally stock the most common and all around useful parts.

Terry is the best!  Many of my friends have bought from him.  He supports kids learning Arduino!
He's got a wide selection of chips... Where's the DIP's?

If you fall... I'll be there for you!
