    im building the minty boost project here: http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/index.html

    the parts list is here:
    http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/parts.html

    is there a substitute or equivelant for the
    LT1302CN8-5 IC? wondering because i order all my parts from digikey. they have 99% of all the parts ive ever needed. they are out of stock. i contacted them. if i need one i have to order like 10 or more for a minimum order. it would be nice to make one big order than have to order from different company and pay extra shipping. thank you!

    There isn't an authorized distributor that I can find who has those LT1302 IC's except for Element14 in China.

    You could try buying direct from Linear Technology using a credit card. See their website.

    The site shows a parts list with a distributor for each of the components. It gives a link to Linear Technology.
    I can't think of any equivalents of the top of my head, but a google search might turn something up.

    The Newark site will ship them from Farnell UK for a $20 fee - but at that price, you're over $30 for just the IC. You may as well just throw the thing in the trash.

    Try contacting Linear Technology and see if you can get a sample. :)
