I'm just curious what have people’s experiences obtaining
functional IC's from various vendors.
Recently I obtained three LM323K (TO-3) 5 volt regulators from a well-known
CA distributor (Ja*****). Two on testing with 7.5V inputs, delivered only 4.8V, the
third 0V. Five Mouser chips delivered 5.0V spot on.
I recently got three 80286-12's and one 80286-8 from a PA
distributor (UT******). Two of the 12 MHz chips did not work (in our 80286 S100
board) even at 8 MHz - and appeared dead. Interestingly the one 8MHz chip worked
fine at 12 MHz.
I suppose most of these older IC's are "pulls" but I am curious what are
the experiences of others. Currently if I doubt or critical, I order from
Mouser. I often try DigiKey but can never see to find anything with their
web search function.
