Just announced in EE Times:

For those purchasing through North American commercial channels, one less source for Atmel chips!

Interesting that both are "headquartered" in Melville, NY.

I'm sorry to see this on our side of the pond as well.

NU bought DT (a well run national distributor here in the UK) a few years ago and they were doing a good job in this country - cheap training seminars for engineers, good customer support, quick responses, wide range of suppliers (Atmel, Xilinx, ST, etc) etc

I wonder how long Arrow will keep that level of service up...?

Murdo.

Hi,

Arrow can have some decent low qty pricing on stuff.

They will hose you on the unknowns however. Shipping becomes shipping + packing + packing tape + depreciation on the scissors to cut the packing tape + storage fee for 3 hours until UPS or USPS picks it up + whatever other fee they can think of.

Needless to say I no longer place an order without talking to them on the phone to ask them what the total will be...

Thanks,

Alan

"Arrow" and "service" in the same sentence without "NOT" ... that's a first :lol:

My 3 or so attempts to work with Arrow Electronics resulted in total frustration and a dash in the opposite direction.

My favorite is the "energy fee" of these robber barons.

United States and Canada: $0.99 energy surcharge
The rest of the world: $10.22

And that's not shipping costs. Shipping costs are separate.

Well, the electrons and photons that describe your order do have to travel very far to get to the states. I bet they are unionized too by now. :)
