Anyone remember Poly Paks? Or what the Digi-Key catalog looked like back then?
an industrial powerhouse that supplies the whole industry?
Quotean industrial powerhouse that supplies the whole industry?oh I wouldnt go quite that far, we use digikey for small quantity items (like reels of 5000) for prototypes and they quickly hit the radio shack argument, great when you need stuff fairly fast, but you pay for it. Support wise, while places like arrow and avnet show up regularly to make sure we are getting what we need, buying us lunches and sprinkling us with eval-boards, digikey shorted us a significant quantity of LED's ... 4 phone calls and 2 hours after the van load of demos left they finally showed up a week too late (and I have never met a DK rep).for small fry people like most of us, they are pretty nice to have around, but the whole industry? meh.
I dont know if they still do this,
I see RS have closed down there shop in Cape Town !
Recession, what recession? ... oh hang on, most of the world had a financial crisis a couple of years ago eh?______Rob
it was moved out to a more major road because it's original location was too far off the tourist track.
