DK, which had somehow managed to maintain same-day service throughout the pandemic, has suddenly gone to 4+ days. Those of you who've been using Thief River Falls as your Just In Time stockroom had best plan for some delays.
Yep, it's been delayed for some weeks. I got the order confirmation the next day, invoice + tracking number the next day and the package left on fourth day from order. The UPS tracking code that came with the invoice indicated it's faulty, but the shipping had just not been done yet..
Delivering this kind of small orders so fast is a small wonder, but now that's borken.
I hit them up all the time about mistakes on the web page. I think I'm racking up bonus miles at this point.
Recently it seems like none of the Samsung data sheet links work. I get a Korean language page with a big exclamation mark. I didn't translate the text, but I have to assume it is an error flag. I filed a report with them pointing out the widespread nature of the issue. In the past they have fixed entire groups of problem pages from one report. I have to hand it to Digikey. They are on top of things.
One of the things I've noticed is that many capacitor makers offer a data sheet that has virtually no data, more of a selection guide really, listing all the values they offer and describing the many mechanical quality tests performed. But no charts of impedance v. frequency or ESR or one that is particularly hard to find, capacitance vs. DC voltage. Digikey lists a cap maker with the lowest prices, but no data, data sheets. Cal-something.
They probably can't find hardware or software to test against. Digikey has the absolute best search capability of any source I am aware of. Mouser is pretty good too and sometimes their tool handles some particular parameter better. I don't like that Mouser adds their advertisement page to the data sheets you down load, but that's small potatoes. Still, it's enough that I always go to Digikey first.
