TIDeals : April 17th - Chronos Watch.

Recommended Posts

Did anyone hit the "Get the Deal at Digi-Key" link?

 

 

Quantity Max Digi-Key Part Number Manufacturer Part Number Description Digi-Key Stock Standard Resale Price* Discount Pricing* 1 MSP-SA430-SUB1GHZ-DEAL-ND MSP-SA430-SUB1GHZ KIT SPECTRUM ANALYZER 1 254.00000 149.00000

 

Digi-Key Stock "1"?  Well I guess that's one way to clear out inventory.

I think that's just because of the separate deal part number. @@spirilis The regular part number has 7 - Immediate 1,286 - Factory Stock. I think it's also because digikey probably doesn't have a better way of enforcing a maximum quantity limit on a item. They normally only have a minimum quantity needed.

Well that's a big fat "meh" from me. It seems like one of those products you either need or you don't. Hardly one that you'd go for if it was a bargain.

If immediate stock is any indication, looks like they've sold a grand total of two over the course of the week.  Two are gone from the factory as well.

 

Doesn't seem to be a deal that anyone is really interested in.   Did anyone here buy one?

Well, anyone who does RF work with TI chips has probably been given one of those by his friendly TI rep, already.  Hobbyists haven't yet gotten into RF, apart from module integration.

Very true. Work on a few projects with the help of a local fae, spend a little money on other products and its amazing what you'll get for free.

Update: I got the shipment today, so, 9 day turn.  Not too bad, I guess, but the part was obviously not being stocked by Digikey, even though Digikey did the packaging and shipping.

I'm sure many of you got the same email - another deal due today (17th April 2013). Maybe a similar $5 deal on the Tiva Lauchpad that there was on the Stellaris? Actually, it mentions tools so maybe that's a clue.
 

 

Hi everyone!  Sorry for the late notice, but we will have a TI Deal tomorrow (April 17) at 9:00am CDT (1400 UTC). Just head over to tideals.com tomorrow to check it out.

Is the deal gone already?  It is 15:18 (UTC+01:00) here now, and the tideals.com site still shows the "Do you hear that sound..." page.
