$50 Robot Parts in Australia
« on: July 15, 2007, 06:11:46 AM »
Hey all, I'm starting out on robotics but I'm from Australia so the parts list for the US isn't as much help to me as it could be...

I can get most of the stuff from Dick Smith/Jaycar and any other electrical store but I'm having a bit of trouble with the ATmega8 AVR chip. I found a Jaycar listing that I think is the right chip but I was wondering if someone would be able to verify that it is the right chip, the website is  http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=ZZ8753&CATID.  I'm also wondering if anyone knows where I can get a programmer for the chip as well.

Im also trying to find out if anyone knows where I would be able to get the specific servo motor and linear regulator from as well,  and whether digikey and radioshack would send to Australia if I can't find the exact parts.

Any help would be appreciated!

hey, there's probably better options locally but when i'm traveling i usually look here for the basics:

and while digikey dosn't seem to have a AU base (http://dkc1.digikey.com/us/en/mkt/International.html) i'd be very surprised if they didn't ship there:
