    Hi to all,


    Farnell InOne / Newark have long had an " in house brand " they dub "
    Multicomp " or MC.

    Many low cost items like fuses, connectors and resistors are supplied as
    being Multicomp brand - theses line all seem to be sourced in Asia,
    unlike the vast majority of Farnell stock which is sourced from major EU and
    US makers.

    The MC brand has been expanded to include semis - even the infamous & much
    faked Motorola ( ON ) TO3 pack, BJT devices like MJ15003/4, MJ15024/5
    etc.

    But these MC ones are not made in the Motorola plant in Mexico.

    Is " MOSPEC " of Taiwan product being rebadged as MC by Farnell ??

    Got any idea what is going ON ???

    I have come across MOSPEC MJ15003/4s and they were a joke. The die was about
    half the size of the genuine item. They may have been counterfeited parts
    themselves and marked MOSPEC but I don't know.

    I'd certainly want to examine the die in a MOSPEC device before purchasing any
    quantity.
