“Anchor is the best place for prototyping supplies and tools. It’s an incredible momentum builder for product development. The staff is alert and helpful.”

“I’ve built many prototype products inspired by the many items on the shelves at Anchor, from 15 channel programmable power supplies to video encoders. They’ve got quite a selection of electronic and mechanical tools too, everything from USB microprocessor programming dongles to Swiss-made fine tweezers. One of the last of the “hobbiest paradises” to be found in the Bay Area.”

–Doug Tao, Pixim Inc.

“I’ve been a customer of Anchor Electronics for 10+ years. Their extensive inventory is just one of the reasons I use them. Their pricing and convenience work for me.”

–John Palermo, Trimble Navigation

“Over the last couple decades I’ve seen many electronics stores come and go in Silicon Valley, but Anchor Electronics has endured. And that’s for the best, too, because when I need just a few parts for a prototype or lots of parts for a production run, Anchor is the place I go. Whether it’s discretes, ICs, or just mechanical hardware, Anchor has what I need. The friendly staff knows their products and is always easy to work with, and Anchor’s prices are competitive and nearly always the lowest. Anchor-Electronics in Santa Clara – it’s where I go to get parts for all my gizmos.”

–Bob Armstrong, Spare Time Gizmos

“Anchor is the goto place for electronic parts off the shelf and in stock.”

–Marshall Lise, ON Semiconductor

“Anchor is a great place to find the components a basic electronics lab needs to keep running. We have used Anchor over the past couple of years for lab and prototype electronics. And they are open on Saturdays!”

–Rick Jones, Altierre Corp

“I have been coming to Anchor since 1984, because it is a little store with everything I need. It has the best prices in the Valley and staff that it familiar with the stock. It is a great place to drop your anchor and park your boat for a while.”

–Lorenzo Bertuzzi
