EEVblog #134 - The Maxim Manipulation
« on: December 21, 2010, 11:28:11 pm »
I hope there was not a lot of stress at your end Dave,  I wonder if this is not just bad stock management, I would be surprised if a top tier supply company would buy fakes, actually I think not.  It could be that some badly programed items / reel was returned and just put back in stock as a mistake, bad policy to not trace stock !

It could be good stock replaced with fake at the board  (some may only use the serial and not program any data.)  company or on route to make a few $$ illegal. Anything else in between.

Bummer as they say :)

I laughed when he said: "I don't like Maxim parts."

their parts are quite good, they do make some awesome stuff, it's just the huge lead time for large quantities that makes using their stuff a nightmare.

Which is the main reason why I don't like them.
Yes, many of their parts are awesome.
