Where to buy quad digi pots?
« on: July 10, 2018, 03:48:59 PM »
Bit of a weird one, want to get hold of some quad digital pots for a project but big boys all charge large postage fees (Mouser, Farnell) and it's not really a common item. Does anyone know of anywhere that doesn't charge the earth for shipping these things?

Or if anyone is on the fence about a Mouser order in the UK I'll gladly go in on it :)

I was looking at the Microchip MCP4442-502E/ST - purely because of the I2C as it's simpler and I don't need speed and cheaper than the SPI quads, but really any quad in the Microchip MCP family, or hell I'd go for a couple of the Analog Devices AD52XX series just to test something out.

It looks like Arrow stocks the part and appears to have free shipping in the UK (may want to verify that, but as far as I could tell with a dummy order it looked to not add shipping fees)

Holy hell. Had seen Arrow mentioned on here a few times but figured it would be the same postage-wise across the pond but just placed the order for some of them and it went through with no postage :o Cheers for the tip Somnif!
