Default CS8412 availability in UK

Hi Folks

I'm looking to get the CS8412 DIP chip in the UK to build Fedde's Nonos III dac, but all the usual suspects, (RS, Farnell etc.) have no stocks left. They offer the SMT version instead, but as a digital newcomer, I find that a little scary as it is an expensive chip to ruin on a first attempt...

So, anyone know of any suppliers with stocks left, or is prepared to part with one for ready money?

Default US availability

Pinkmouse,
I was looking around last week for 8412s in the US and they're nearly impossible to find. There was one supplier that had 3 in stock and a minimum order of $100, so they said they'd sell me the 3 for $100. I can forward the information if thats of interest.

I've decided I'm better off using a CS8414 and a DIP/SMT adapter board. Digikey sells an adapter board for $10 and I think the 8414 goes for less, so that seems to be the way to go.

---Gary

Thanks a lot guys, but the problem is that due to my rather "interesting" financial situation at the moment I don't have a credit card, so I have to source them from the UK...

will a couple of nixie tubes and dekatrons do?? lolx...anyways I was wondering...why is the SMD version cheaper?? it doesn;t make real sense...unless we're talking about higher demand...which might be the case...guess we all have to go onto the SMT bandwagon some day...

What sort of stuff you after? I don't tend to buy boutique components, but I have a good selection of nice op-amps, and lots of bipolar output devices.

I've got about a dozen or so of them. I'd like to keep a couple, so the rest are fair game. I'd ideally like to find an NPC 5843 DIP digital filter, so if anybody has one, maybe we can swap (with $$$ to offset the cost difference etc).

I'm always willing to accept cash, so if anybody needs one, e-mail me. How does $40 sound? I think I paid like $35 each for them if memory serves me right.

I originally obtained my 8412's from RS but they now list them as obsolete.
I had not spotted the 8414 at RS ?
The soic package has it's appeal ,but putting it on an adapter rather defeats it,s more compact nature, then again soic are a
pain if one is constructing using p2p methods.

But I was not too unhappy to use the 8414 as a replacement until I discovered it seems to consume a typical 40ma against the 8412's 27ma.
That may appear trivial but it is little bit annoying for those of us who like to make portable dacs
and value every precious milliamp we can save...

The 8416 seems pretty frugal compared to both the above,
though I have yet to study the other spec in any detail regards
applying it to my own needs ,basically tda 1453 based stuff.





I expect in ten years time 90% of the diy electronics community
will be equivalent to classic car enthusiasts rummaging around auto-jumbles searching for that vital obsolete part , i.e. something
with leads that can seen with the naked eye
