Default National Semiconductor chips in Oz

Hi, I've been looking at all the various chip amps designs I could Google and does anyone know if National Semiconductor chips (escecially the LM4780) can be found in Australia? I would order from somewhere like chipamp.com or audiosector.com but I don't have a credit card, and that's all they seem to accept. Any ideas. Cheers, Nic.

National Semi agents for Victoria.
Give them a call and see what payment options are available.

Arrow Electronics Australia Pty Ltd.
9 -10 Bastow Place,
PO Box 623,
Mulgrave, Victoria 3170, Australia
Tel: (61) 3 9574 9300

Alternatively, consider using two LM3886's from Altronics.
They have a branch in Springvale.

Cheers

Thanks very much Rob.

And has anyone else in Australia purchased from chapamp.com or audiosector.com? How did that go? How did you pay.

Cheers, Nic.

Not quite Australia - but I ordered some stuff from audiosector.com (paid via Paypal/Credit Card) and it all went very smoothly.

Hi Nic. You can order free samples from Nat Semi. I've got a few spare samples of LM4780 and you are welcome to 1 or 2 for free. Call me in Mount Waverley 03 9808 7248 and come around to pick them up.

Thanks to all for your input. And to glennb - thanks but I'm never really around that area. Posting mabye? And I may have to move onto a kit from Altronics. See post . I'm not particularly adept at etching pcb boards. Does anyone know how hard it is to make a ChipAmp on stripboard? Cheers, Nic
