lately I’ve spent a great deal of time hunting down certain arduino related hardware like led drivers sparkfun gadgets and so on. Most of the time just to find out that certain device don’t seem to be sold in “the old europe” - at least I can’t find them. Having scanned the usual locations (rs components, digikey, farnell …) I’m close to madness. In general I’m not against placing overseas orders, but only if need be.
So here’s what I propose:
Start a sticky thread collecting verified sources of hard to get / “kewl” things, possibly localized (europe/us/…):
- ledriver XZY… specs… → digikey
- best rgb led ever → farnell
and so on.
what say you ?
yea / nay
