ADL5391-Multiplier

Hi,

I want to purchase few of these ICs (ADL5391-2.0 GHz Multiplier - 5 pieces) for my prototype development but disappointingly you have minimum 50 qty requirements for this IC.

Hard to understand the logic behind how a developer would buy 50 pieces for prototyping and design evaluation before finalizing the design?

These are only available from your online stores and not available with any distributors in the US or elsewhere.

Appreciate letting me know how and where I can purchase these.

Best,

Chakravarthy

  • Hi Benjamin,

    Thanks for quick reply...

    As it was a high-volume product requiring quick evaluation, I had already selected another device from a different manufacturer.

    I can understand issues if everyone requests free samples but if one wants to purchase them in lower quantities that too when none of the distributors stock them and it only costs few dollars, it would be better if ADI has a mechanism to enable it's customers to purchase them directly in low quantities.. it will only strengthen their position by reaching out to as many as possible and selling as many as possible and who knows even a simple idea can lead to billions of dollars in revenues down the line...

    Thanks however for your responses,

    Chakravarthy
