Thread: SMD Components - Delhi / India

    Default SMD Components - Delhi / India

    Hello All,

    I have just finished prototyping my project and now would like to get it onto
    a PCB using smd components for a more compact size.

    So far i haven't been able to find any place in Delhi or online that offers SMD
    components in non bulk quantities & reasonable price.

    Mehta Brothers @ Lajpat Rai Mkt offer min quantity @ 100 pieces (Rs 40 approx).
    Its not that bad but i would like to to keep this as a last option.

    does anyone know of any other hobby friendly local shops in delhi or online ?

    Thank you
    ankit

    @Vikas "India and SMD dont go hand in hand"

    This isn't true!

    In Mumbai we have several SMD seller having really nice stock!

    But yes 100 + is MOQ Not a big deal though!

    You can try element14 , they do single component selling.

    Well till your buying basic RCL its fine , try going for anything advanced ... and your out of luck .

    In our last locux project other than RC components almost everything is imported from China and US .

    @avinash, Yeah I guess 100 MOQ is better that nothing. Any suggestions for shops in LRM besides mehta brothers ?
    also the AVR tutorials on ur site helped me a lot with PWM with an AVR !

    @vikas, i already checked out their site and your right .. their prices seem a bit steep (Rs 3 approx per SMD resistor)
    compared to the Mehta brothers @ LRM delhi (he quoted me Rs 40 @ 100 SMD resistors approx. this is the first time
    I am buying SMD products so I am not very sure what a reasonable price is.

    Also when u imported from US/China how much did it cost you ? justified for a hobby project or only for a bulk
    production?

    thanks

    An MOQ of 100 @ Rs. 40 is okay. And you are going to go through this stock fast. If you are doing primarily digital designs, you could stock up just a few values, since inherently in digital designs values are not that critical. F.e., in most cases 3k9 and 5k1 can be replaced by 4k7.

    Maybe he'll discount further if your order crosses a certain threshold?
