I am no longer marketing modern(ish) electronic
components for retail
- there is no money there. All that stuff - 1000s of ICs and
capacitors and connectors are going out for metal
recovery. Yes, it
Let us not forget, places like Digikey (sp) tend to have
only the latest
surface mount stuff, not handy to find thru the hole
parts, or not so common part, like 120 ns one vers 200 ns
one. But on the other hand
Digikey has true overnight shipping, order before say 5 pm
and get it the next day.
Digi-Key still has plenty of through-hole parts, although
less than the 2 million+ items they once stocked.
Since I have a P&P machine, I, too, have moved over to using
as much SMT as possible, but still use
a lot of through-hole connectors and power transistors.
Their search engine is great, and this has pushed
other distributors to upgrade their search capability.
