Greetings, CE community:
For over 15 years in the electronics design and manufacturing field, I’ve seen many projects canceled or drastically changed late in the cycle. Several key components were already purchased as NCNR, and as a result, brand new components just sat on the shelf, waiting to be chucked in the dumpster.
My attempts to sell our excess components (brokers, eBay, etc.) were rarely successful, so I, along with some other industry veterans, decided to take a different approach.
We created the XSComponents Marketplace to connect vendors with excess component inventory to the end customer. Most importantly, component listings are free, you set the price and all listings show up in Octopart searches. All vendors are U.S.-based companies, and all parts are new and in the original packaging. We’ve already seen some success finding buyers for unused STM and UBlox ICs.
This is a new marketplace and we’re working hard to implement features that make it even better. If you have any thoughts, suggestions or words of wisdom, we’d love to hear them.
