Electronic suppliers


Recommended Posts

Can anyone please list their favorite electronic part and equipment suppliers. I like places that have bulk bags of supplies containing a variety of resistor values or jumpers for instance. A lot of the places I've seen online are somewhat inexpensive put they kill you on the shipping. I would buy more from Digikey but finding what you need with their catalog is somewhat daunting.

I've run into the same problem.  Their search functions are largely useless, thumbnails are largley nonexistant and the language they use is impenetrable.  I've been having trouble finding a simple pair of round 2 conductor plugs on any of the major suppliers.  If you like variety and ease of use, you can try electronics goldmine.  They're pretty affordable and have a often varying inventory of oddiments, as well as the common, basic components that you'd expect to find.

I just ordered through Newark. They are reasonably priced and I was able to get lots of stuff for just over $5. I looked at their shipping and it can be as little as $4 something. Their search is very precise and you can select what kind of mounting you would like, power tolerance ect. The packaging was nice as well and many components came in a static shield. Based on my one order, I would highly recommend this company.

As far as jumper wire go, I have had very good experience using telephone wire, just make sure that is is not stranded wire. When using the wire as jumpers the wire goes a long way and is not very expensive. There are several wires in there and you don't need much wire. I was able to pick up about 4 feet of the stuff from Home Depot for just over one dollar.
