Hoping for some advice here. I’m trying to re-stock some of my supplies for my IR LED Array Gadgeteer module, and I’ve discovered that one of the key components, the IR LED, is out of stock at both of my go-to suppliers, Mouser and DigiKey.
I did a quick Bing search, and the parts appear to be available from a couple of sellers on AliExpress.com, but I’ve heard mixed things about buying there.
Are there any other suppliers I should try before taking a chance on Aliexpress?
The part I need is the Everlight IR333-A, 940nm TH IR LED. 20deg beam angle, 20mw radiant output.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
