What's Component Sourcing service?
Makerfabs provide parts sourcing service for your projects, either for your PCBA projects that will be produced by Makerfabs, or you need some separated components that come to be a problem in your projects.
Based on the Special Economic Zone of Shenzhen, Makerfabs have direct access to most manufacturers of electronic components in the world and to the world-famous electronic market of Asia. We can provide the most commonly used parts at a rather competitive price, especially for the connectors, capacitors, displays, etc. You will find for some of them, the price will be 1/2, or even 1/3 that of Digikey/Mouser.
It does not matter if you need 10 or 10 000 parts - just send your part list to us, we will make you the quotation for your checking.
How it works:
Verify that your BOM including part type, package, and quantity is clearly defined. A reference link or Digikey/mouser parts number would very helpful to avoid misunderstanding.
Send us your BOM as an Excel or CSV to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will send you back the estimated price for every single part.
You confirming the price, and pay for them if our quotation OK for you.
Makerfabs order the parts as quantities you want and either ship them to you or use them for assembling your PCBAs.
For some commonly used components such as resistor/capacitor, we may source a substitute brand for you, which will lower the cost much and shorter the lead time. We ensure that they are the same spec you intended.
We will mark all the components if it is the original brand as you appointed or substitute band, for your checking.
For all the IC, we will use the original new brand as you appointed.
