Electronic parts sources

During our most recent meeting, a question arose:  where can I buy the resistors and capacitors that I need for what I am building?  Well, with no local electronics stores anymore, that’s a challenge.  Here are a number of options you might consider:

Online/telephone/mail order:

  • Digikey  Huge selection, reliable, long business history.
  • Radio Shack  They seem to still be doing business online and, some HobbyTown stores (like the one in Waco) sell a limited selection of Radio Shack merchandise.
  • Mouser Electronics  Huge selection, reliable, long business history.
  • Altex Computers and Electronics  Mainly cabling and IT products, some audio, some electronics.  They have a store in Austin.
  • Electronic Goldmine  Interesting items, surplus, odds and ends.
  • MPJA Marlin P. Jones.  Lots of inexpensive items including microncontrollers, power supplies, components and kits.
  • Parts Express  Lots of audio components, tools, speakers, vacuum tubes, etc.
  • Newwark/Element 14  Huge selection, long business history.
  • Antique Electronic Supply Lots of tube electronics parts, musical instrument tools, speakers, etc.
  • Sparkfun  Large selection of microcontroller/microprocessor project parts.
  • Adafruit  Large selection of microcontroller/microprocessor/electronic project parts.
  • Seeed Studio  Large selection of microcontroller/microprocessor project parts.
