Insane Packaging

AVnet has so far been my most favorite parts supplier and I have used it quite a few times. Not only do they offer a rather comprehensive catalog, their prices are quite competitive as well and their shipping and handling practices are excellent — sometimes to the extreme.

Here are a few photos to prove. I ordered a few components a couple of weeks ago, and included in my order were two MMA8453Q accelerometers.

When I received my order, I found a rather large package inside (the AA battery is shown here to contrast the size of the packaging):

Inside the ESD safe bag is a full QFN tray with moisture absorbing packets and a humidity indicator card wrapped in another layer of protective wrapping.

After opening the QFN tray… there are the two accelerometers!

    Haha same happened to me , they loose a lot of money on packaging. Somebody needs to send them a memo. I like Avnet best prices for MEMS sensors, fast shipping too !
