    Default Good source for Dip RAM.....

    So I just depleted my stock of 64KB RAM dip chips and wonder where you guys get yours? I have had a healthy stockpile for years but all these repairs have now left me without. I have a few of the 16KB and 256KB chips left but now I am out of the 64KB (suchas M3764, MK4564, and 8493286). Prices on ebay for 1 or 2 chips is nuts! Anyone know a place I can buy by the dozen?

    I recently purchased some 4464 (64kbit x 4) RAM from Jameco, and so far they've all been in working condition. They're pulls from old boards but that doesn't bother me.

    Anchor Electronics lists a lot of different sizes in their price list (page 10), and I've always been happy to buy from them.

    You can certainly do cheaper from eBay or AliExpress, but I trust Anchor to know what they’re selling.

    thats a pretty significant divide in pricing. Although I am sure like you said they are reputable. I am looking to buy qty 50 - 80 pieces.

    You could contact them and see if they'd give you a volume discount, they do that on a lot of parts. I buy generic TTL from them whenever I can because their prices are usually comparable if not better than big-name houses like Digikey.
