    I was looking for some EEPROMS, and was wondering what the difference
    is that would drive some, although spec'ed similarly, to be so
    different in price?

    For instance, I was looking for the following EEPROM's on Digikey:

    IC SERIAL EEPROM SPI 8K X 8 8DIP

    One by Atmel (PN: AT25640-10PI-1.8) was $8.71, while one by Microchip
    Technologies (PN: 25LC640-I/P) was $1.08! And the $8.71 had a slower
    speed?! What gives? Both were for a quantity of "1"...

    Maybe this link will work here:
    http://www.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Criteria?Ref=215397&Site=US&Cat=31523508

    What's the big difference?

    Any insight would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    I think the price difference comes from the original suppliers.

    Some parts comes directly from the factories through a distributor
    channel. You have to pay for the profit of intermediaries.

    Some parts are cheaper because they come from Excess Inventory. They are
    discounted. But the parts are the same mecanic and electric
