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!
The way it works is you search for your component on Octopart. When the component’s page appears, look to the right for a small graph near the unit price. Click on the graph and you open a full page graph detailing historical pricing for whatever range you select.
