Just wanted to browse their products for a simple switch but their website is so slow and not responding most of the time. I wish I had a paper copy of their catalog smiley

Digikey does not seem to be responding past the home page.
I have one  - paper copy is huge.
Try Mouser.com instead.

There is one copy in the lab prep room. It's thick. They stopped printing catalogs a while back. I'll try mouser. I'm just too used to digikey's product catalog. Thanks.

Digikey does have the easiest to use filtering tool.
Mouser's not too bad.
I don't like Newark's. Avnet is similar, but they are the only source for some things, like TPIC6x595.
And Arrow for some parts.
Others like dipmicro.com, pololu.com, taydaelectronics.com, phoenixent.com are not bad because they have smaller selection of parts, easier to find stuff. Or use use names that are easier to search on.

It's 1am Sunday local time. It may be doing site maintenance.

It seems to work, albeit very slowly, again. I guess I shouldn't be working on electronics in the middle of the night! smiley
