Octopart provides historical component pricing

Posted on Friday, July 6th, 2012 in components, parts, site by the machinegeek


Greg Shikhman from Octopart writes, “Hey DP, we just launched a new feature on Octopart that we think is really cool: historical prices on chips. We’re trying to bring transparency to the chip market and we’ve already discovered some cool stuff in our data. Check it out!
