Title: Mannn!! it's frustrating here!!
Post by: K_F on November 17, 2012, 09:37:33 AM
Being at the dark end of the world..
Busy on this multifaceted project where I have to build/design everything Hardware/firm+software.
One slight change to the project and all sh1t breaks loose..

I mainly order stuff online as our local electronics suppliers are all but useless when it come to high-tech stuff.
I cannot just trot down the road and buy new stuff.. Online sites like Mouser and Digikey are usually good but some stuff they're pushing min order quantities (MOQs).
I'm not in production yet, but need the stuff for prototyping without breaking the bank.

I have to move to a 1st world country... soon

it seems that UK suffers the same type of problems
i have considered what it might take to start an electronics mfg company there
the availability of parts and the heavy taxes make it impractical
no wonder the UK has so few e-mfg companies
