'[OT] Hobbyist-Friendly Samples'

Hey all, a recent discussion about driving dot matrix displays led to
talk about samples from different companies. I want to try and build a
list of companies that give out product samples for ICs,
microcontrollers, etc. Hobbyist friendly.

If you have a company to add, please post.


Current companies:

Microchip - Sample any microcontroller 3 types x 2 pieces each I
believe per month for $7.50.
http://www.microchip.com/

Maxim IC - As far as I know, unlimited samples. FedEx shipping. Totally free.
http://www.maxim-ic.com/

Austria Microsystems - Totally free samples. I believe there is a
limit of 3 pieces max for each type of product. Totally free.
http://www.austriamicrosystems.com


Please post and share your experiences and add companies to the list.

Analog Devices and Linear (LTC) have sent me a few free samples before. (UK)

Me too. (also UK).

I have also got a sample out of Allegro Microsystems, for one of their
current sensing chips.

I meant to say I have also had samples from Intersil, of one particular
device I was interested in. I haven't tried them on a regular basis though.

Has anyone in Canada or the US ordered Microchip samples with their
new pricing/system? I want to try a new USB PIC but the little
shipping chart here:
http://www.microchip.com/samples/Default.aspx?testCookies=true has me
worried. Basically it says that while Microchip Direct orders are 2-5
days, samples are 1-2 weeks.

Anyone have any emperical findings?

Texas Instruments / Burr Brown: 4 dispatches every 6 months, max 8 types
of IC per dispatch, quantity depends by the IC (usually from 1 to 10).
FedEx or UPS dispatches, totally free.
