I am looking for a supplier that can provide SMD capacitors and resistors in 0603 and where shipping doesn't cost you an arm and a leg.

Shipping from Mouser and Digikey seems to be quite expensive for a box weighing less than 100 gram.


Anyone that can recommend a shop/supplier?

Thanks Zitron, I will have a closer look to their website. You linked to resistors, I also need caps.

btw, Do you also post on rcgroups? I think I recognize your name from there.

I just bought lots of 0805 resistors+capacitors from ebay, I think about 3000pcs for 10USD. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SMD-0805-50-Value-Resistor-32-Value-Capacitor-Kit_W0QQitemZ250348635921QQihZ015QQcategoryZ4664QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262


Has anyone been buying xbee modules and could tell me if there is any place on earth, where they are not so pricey? The best price I got was here: (if link doesn't work - you just choofe "farnel export" and copy/paste the link again, or just search for xbee)

jds, yeah I also like RC planes  smiley

Asia Engineer (ebay Shop posted by Odisej) also seems pretty good, I've been tempted to buy some stuff from them but have not yet actually bought anything so I can't comment on them...

I like to shop on Futurlec
http://www.futurlec.com/
It's one of the rare shop that can provide some "rare" parts, SMD parts (including caps & res) and ship for as low as 4$, even to Europe.... And they have a small 8x8 led matrix, with "square LEDs"... Nice ^^

Thanks Melka,

i only found smd resitors that they sell in reels of 5000 pcs, also only 0805. I am looking for 0603 smd resitors and caps, available in single pieces.

Anyone?
