    Hi, I heard that it's possible to order completely free samples from TI.
    So I checked their site and found this: http://www.ti.com/sc/docs/sampfaq.htm

    They're saying:
    Now how do I find out if I have to pay anything other than VAT in my country (Israel) ???

    I registered through my institute. I have been ordering free samples from TI for quite sometime. I never had to pay any charges as yet. The ordering process it quite simple and once you confirm the list of components to be ordered, you will get a mail from TI with the shipment tracking information.

    Have you consulted with your Rabbi? If not, why not?

    Rabbis generally know a lot about practical business matters. If they don't know the precise answer offhand, they can quickly get you in touch with any number of businessmen who can answer your question through experience.

    Hey guess what...
    I ordered my free samples today, and they emailed me confirming the shipping and tracking no..
    TI's just great.. I am planning to build an android prototype with those samples :D.
    Next task is to get my hands on some ARM μC's
    Which will bring life to my Robot :p

    R!f@@ and Reshma, thanks for the replies. I'll order then. I just wasn't sure if a private person can order samples for free or not...

    I have been receiving TI samples for quite some time now. On their site, you have a sample shopping cart. You can get 8 items. Then click checkout, and they show up in the mail a few days later. free.

    Be sure to notice what packaging you are getting. If you wanted PDIP and you get some severely small SMD packages, it is alot of eyestrain to make work.

    I believe you should be in some kind of company or institute to order 'em, as the field 'company' is marked important in the registration form

    It may be required in the registration form, but is it a requirement in reality?
    Other way to put it, have you guys ordered the components for your private usage or have you ordered it for you company ?

    I don't know if they allow only officially registered companies :) But the company field is mandatory. If you are a student, you can register through your institute and the shipment will be delivered to the institute address.

    Don't think he's in FLA so finding a Rabbi may not be that easy. Yes here their on every corner, but leave FLA and you won't see one till you get to NY.
