Electronic components on-line store within Europe?

    Dear all,

    I live in Middle-East Europe where components distributors are not very
    amateur oriented. That is why I'm looking for a on-line store with wide
    range of electronic components so I can buy sample quantities of
    semiconductor products. As an example I can point Samsung KS0127B
    multistandard video decoder - I can't get it anywhere here.
    Can anyone advice me a good place in the net to buy such products?

    Thank you in advance

    A few alternatives:

    - Farnell (http://www.farnell.com/), even though I am not sure if
    they sell to private people.

    - Digi-Key (http://www.digi-key.com/) has just started their business
    in Germany. So, try and find the German Digi-Key site, and you can
    buy things with a credit card. They have also a UK site, but the
    pound prices are (or at least were) much higher than the euro prices.
    Very many items and rather resonable prices.

    - Chip manufacturer wab pages. Some manufacturers (e.g. Maxim) send
    free samples. Some manufacturers (e.g. Linear Technology) have a
    good online store: just click a few times and give your credit card
    number, and the components are on your desk within a few days.
    The price may be even lower (and delivery quicker) than through
    the official distributors.

    Some manufacturers are more difficult than others. The Asian companies
    seem to aim at large customers, whereas most American manufacturers
    will sell you one piece, if you want.

    Dear Wlad,

    You could try http://www.futurlec.com. I've used their service twice: they
    are pretty good. I'm not sure they have what you want, but you can allways

    Good luck, Steve
