XR2206 function generator chip supplier
« on: January 13, 2019, 10:14:50 PM »
Just a heads up that I have recently ordered the obsolete XR2206 function generator chip from two different ebay suppliers, one turned out dodgy (got my money back) and the other sellers were good (I ordered twice there).
That's of course no guarantee that they all will be good, but if you're looking for some I'd recommend this seller:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/XR-2206-XR2206CP-XR2206-Monolithic-Generator-DIP-IC/323100987480?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
The chip is used in the Catalinbread Pareidolia. Also in cheap function generators on ebay.

To save some folks a click, this seller will not ship to the US

Its our "trade war" nonsense we have going on. A bunch of tariffs got levied against China, so its a bit of a mess. Some stuff has a surcharge, some stuff will just flatout get turned away. And given we have a "government shutdown" at the moment god help you if you want to be able to figure out what ends up in which category.

I can see that is a completely satisfying and sensible situation. :P
