    Hello everybody,

    I'm in Silicon Valley, California, USA and I'm developing a product that
    must mate to an existing assembly. I seek about 100 pieces each of
    these Tyco/AMP/Aces parts within the next 30 days:


    They are 0,6 mm center distance 160 pin SMT board - to - board connectors.

    All three vendors I contacted want reasonable money for these parts, but
    require 3500 - piece minimum purchases for each part number. I *could*
    buy them but that would blow the budget for the rest of the parts I need.

    'Other vendors' have quoted full retail price with doubled lead times!

    I found that, or
    cannot sell me these.

    Can you recommend a good source that can sell me prototype quantities of
    these parts?

    I have been trying to locate those part numbers on the Tyco website
    without any joy.

    The closest I can find are;,17560,17540,17739&LG=1&I=13&N=1&IDS=60047

    Are these the items you require? These part no's don't have the '5'
    after the leading 1- as in your specification. It might make a

    That's them, Ross.

    Tyco changed their part numbering system recently to include a leading
    '5', but parts without the leading '5', in this case, are the same as
    those with the '5'.

    I see your problem... they are not readily available - anywhere that I
    can find anyway! Unless some large OEM has some over from a production
    run (difficult to imagine for such a specialised use product such as
    this) then you are stuck with having to order MOQ and wait.
    Unfortunately, if you are building for a customer, he is likely to
    baulk at having to pay for the unused portion of the stock indent -
    and if you don't charge him then you will be stuck with something you
    may not use in the future.

    Good luck.
