Default Altera/Xilinx Distributor in Europe?

Hi,
I am looking for a distributor of the altera ep1k10 fpga series. I
need to order a small number (1-5) of these devices together with
configuration proms, oscillators etc. Is there any distributor in
Europe (Germany?), who offers this?

If you could answer the same question also for Xilinx fpga's as well
as for A/D converters like adc0831 or adc08060, you would help me very
much.

Thanks
Patrick

Thanks for the address. I've called them: same problem as with
"Spoerle"
1. They only sell to companies, not to private persons.
2. Their minimum package quantity is in general 30-90. But I don't
want to order some 50 FPGAs, 10$ each.

Is it impossible to buy a single altera FPGA chip without founding a
company??

distributors DO sell in "sample" quantity if asked too.
but yes, for some items minimum quantity is "tube"

www.digikey.com is greate for small quantity also with pricing
as example small quantity Xilinx pricing at digikey is almost
1:1 same as from disti (disti may give 5% lower price)
well with digikey shipping and tax applies so small quantity
goes more expensive. I think this applies to other similar
catalog companies as well
www.jopdesign.com had some ACEX chips overleft you could ask Martin

Hi, Patrick,

please specify the part number and quantities for the Altera and
National devices you are looking for (Speed, package ...) and send me
the list([email protected]). Please add your Name, address, telefon
number...

Oscillators you can buy at www.farnell.de

Patrick, have you tried Arrow?

I'm sure I bought components off them on a personal
credit card a few years ago (before starting NSD Ltd).

I had that problem with motorola parts years ago.
All distributors only would sell to a company.

After telling Motorola at a trade fair in munich, he checked back that
the
contracts between motorola and the distributor required the distri to
sell to anyone.

As it looks like, Xilinx has a contract for exclusive distribution of
its FPGAs with Avnet and Insight. It is hard to believe that any
company would give exclusvie distribution rights to another company
and than allow that company to restrict the customer base. My
experience with insight is, that you need to be persistent.

If in doubt, purchase from digikey. They ship to europe.
Also, look for companies in your area that use FPGA. They might sell
them to you.

For crystals I like http://www.comtec-crystals.com/.
