find any of the forms that were given to you, here's a generic one to fill out:
If you are interested in purchasing electronic components for building
projects, here are some links to places we buy parts from.
- Jameco Electronics - We used to buy most
of our stuff from Jameco before they "improved" their web site. It's now more
difficult to find stuff on the web site so you may be better off requesting a
printed catalog or looking through the PDF version of the printed catalog.
It's usually easier to find parts in that catalog than online. It will also
get you on their mailing list for future catalogs.
- Digi-Key - This is our other primary
supplier. They have a large inventory, the prices are reasonable, and we
usually get the order pretty quickly. They send out a printed catalog of over
1000 pages. However the size of the catalog sometimes make it hard to find
- SparkFun Electronics - This company
sells a lot of interesting items for the hobbiest/experimenter. Their
inventory changes a lot so you might not be able to buy the same things six
months from now.
- These are similar to SparkFun in that most of the stuff is for the hobbyist.
- Modern Device - They seem to have
a interesting variety of components including many sensors and related
- Newark and
Mouser Electronics - These two are major suppliers to the electronics industry
with very large inventories. Not sure if they have minimum order amounts that may
make it hard for the hobbyist but they are worth a look.
- All Electronics - This is
basically a surplus store with both new and used components.
Their prices on some stuff is very good, provided you can find what you need.
You can also visit their store at 14928 Oxnard St., Van Nuys.
- B.G. Micro - They sell a wide variety of
interesting stuff. Download their PDF catalog.
- Apex Electronics, This is a large
electronics surplus store in an industrial area of the San Fernando Valley
(8909 San Fernando Road, Sun Valley). If they have something you need, you can
probably get it at a good price, but it's sometimes hard to find things. It's
definitely worth at least one trip there just to see the place, and its storage
area outside in the back.
