ft232bm price

I would like to know where I can buy this FTDI FT232BM USB IC's as a private person within the European Union: **broken link removed**
I know this Swedish reseller: but I would like to know if there is any other options, since this one is quite expensive.
I'm considering to buy here: but I prefer to buy from within EU to avoid extra taxes.

Thanks in advance - ME

Check out for schematics, dataheets and samples.

You can buy through the suppliers listed under support on the FTDI website - I've bought in low volume from in the UK before.

What is the price of FT232BM or FT245BM at alphamicro?

ft232bm buy

Last time I bought any would have been Oct/Nov last year, just as the BM varient came out. I think in low volume (I bought 5) at £4.30 each but they are definately about £5 in low volumes.

If you can still get hold of them it may be worth getting the AM varient, the differences are only really the number of external components you need, and if you have the extra components in stock you should be able to save some money...

The BM has less external components because they integrated part of the reset circuit into the BM, we had awful trouble getting the reset to work correctly on the AM chips, with the BM chips I've not had a single problem...

...yeah, I think that they are approximately £5 from alpha...
