Without a doubt, this is the number one resource for anyone involved in electronics research and assembly, and a must-have in everyone’s production arsenal,” said Kevin Laphen, President of Practical Components.

The new user-friendly site has been optimized for fast and intuitive navigation. Instant translations to most major languages are available directly from the new online resource. From the home page, full previews of each package type now are available. Additionally, detailed product pages, including downloads of component drawings, daisy chain patterns, data sheets and white papers, are available for each specific package type.

There are several new products on the site, including: ​​

These components can cost as much as 80% less than live components, making them ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations. Practical Components is headquartered in Los Alamitos CA and has a worldwide distribution network. For more information, visit
