small quantitiy suppliers of RF components

Post by dmascare » Thu Dec 08, 2005 3:51 pm

Does anyone know of a company that sells small quantities of X-band gunn diodes, schottky diodes, horn antennas, rectifiers, parabolic reflectors, etc. So far all the companies I have come across only sell in quantities of 3000 for the diodes. I have come across some very small companies but so far the ones I have come across are basically not ok with the purchasing people. Any help would be appreciated.

if you work for a company that has a nazi purchasing dept, just buy them and submit an expense report. Forgiveness is easier than permission.

Try Googling up Arrow Electronics. A few months ago. they were the only company I could locate to purchase an Atmel chip in single quantitys and no minimum purchase. Everyone else wanted 1000 or more orders. When you pull up the web page, look for the Arrow North America site. There catolog is a pain in the ass to navigate, but I did get my part.

There's always the "beg for samples" route from any distributor. It helps to buy something from them occasionally, however.
