Free sample chips!

Recommended Posts

Search the semiconductors.philips.com or standardics.philips.com. there are a few demo boards - a few low power audio amp boards and headphone amp boards and the I2C page for I2C related boards.
do check the spelling of the websites that i've mentioned.

I have never been asked to pay postage on samples. Not from National Semi or any of the other manufacturers. However, I have a business. Perhaps you tried to get samples as an individual or student?

I dont really need chips, I need more passive stuff.  Do any of those companies offer resistors, capacitors, pots and that stuff?  I am also looking for some transistors and diodes that I cant find at my local radio shack (radio shack sucks).

Same with me. Radioshack stinks >:(, their things r too expensive and they also don't have many things I need like Variable Capacitors.
Any1 have any info about getting passive component sample?

There was one site on the first page of this topic(says that it only passive devices next to it).  I like to see what I am ordering too, so I dont use mouser or digikey, I use www.allelectronics.com.  I was thinking today about how radio shack turned from an electronics store to a crappy toy/cellphone/tv/stereo store.  I saw pictures of the begining stores, and in one of the Short Circuit movies and it was awesome.  Too bad that I am 15 and didnt use radio shack when it was better.

They don't offer samples of passive components because theirs are no diferent than anyone elses. They give out free chips because if you use their chip in your desing there is a good chance that they will be selling a lot more chips than the few they sent you.

I went to a few sites, and found the samples button. Is it just me, or the samples webpage displays nothing, and it's always loading!!!!  ??? >:( :( :'(

TI:  >:( Regret to inform they cannot send me samples.  Might be because my email address is not corporate???  No reason was given.

Fairchild:  :) Waiting... they said it will be shipped

Maxim/Dallas:  :D Got an email confirmation, the parts will be shipped except one they did not have in stock.

Yay!  This is fun!

Going to be trying these next!

Does anyone know of anyone gives free samples on transistors as well?

I am in need of some 2N3904/3906 or BC547/557, and buying them would cost me way too much, since the shops charges insane prices to ship it to me  :'(

Wow, there're a few new ones I haven't sampled yet.  As always I re-enter my name in the company field (I keep good company).  My title describes what I do in my free time.  One wanted more than one line of street address, so I specified my brewing shed.  I will find out soon enough.
