A way to purchase internal SparkFun parts

Post by Dave Mueller » Mon Jun 16, 2014 5:19 pm

At a company I used to work, we had a process in place to create custom part numbers for the items we kept in stock to build the products. That way, if a customer need to replace a broken jack, or push button, etc, it was a simple matter.

I'm looking for an SMD 1/8" audio jack like the one on the Si4703 eval board, that's what brought this to mind.

I would think it was because they would loose money to start selling these components. They couldn't compete with distributors that can sell these for pennies on the dollar.

Digikey has these for $1.37. http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/e ... -ND/669705
