Re: ISSTC Components

Original poster: "john cooper" <tesla-at-tesla-coil-dot-com> 

Most of these parts I purchased from other distributors.  I work for a 
stocking electronic components distributor and have accounts with just 
about every other disty and manufacturer in the country (and many outside 
the U.S.).  The IGBT's and one other, so far, were sampled.  There's a few 
disties that have relevant parts that we have a special relationship with 
and I get nice pricing from them, a few will actually ask me what I want to 
pay for them and that's the price I get!  I'm also interested in trading 
parts.  Most of these components don't really cost much, pennies, but try 
and buy 2, it can be nearly impossible, I suppose some of those could be 
sampled but I'd rather just place an order for 100 for $2.00.  Also, many 
mainline components will not be sampled.  Most all disties have minimum 
p.o. amounts and I add these small orders onto larger ones generated from 
my work as the opportunity presents itself. A few of these components are 
allocated, i.e., the TI UCC chips,
  and the 15KP220CA is a 20.00 part, but the UCC's can still be had for a 
premium in the marketplace, or sampled from TI.

I'm just using my somewhat privileged position in the electronics industry 
for my own benefit and why not spread these parts about to those that don't 
have this access?  Because of who I am, I ask for samples, I generally get 
them, no questions asked, or very few and if these are stocked by a disty, 
I generally get nice pricing because they also buy parts from us.  I think 
there are those who would like to get samples but don't want to go thru the 
deceit they'd need to pull it off.  Samples are meant for legitimate r&d 
departments or contract manufacturers that will be later buying thousands 
if the part works out, not for a personal project with no prospect of 
selling more (there could be exceptions to this).  I'm just wondering how 
long it's going to take these manufacturers to realize that they're getting 
fleeced for bogus sample orders, it's going to change the way they operate 
if they ever do decide to do something about that.  Plus, I'm making sure 
the prices are minimal
   and definitely less than the Avnet's and Digi-Key's in the industry, and 
no 'handling' charge.

Believe me, I'm not doing this to make money, I get that from selling 1,000 
to 50,000+ components on a single p.o., not from 2 diodes.  And I don't 
mind stocking commonly used components, give me a call if you have any 
special requests.
