    Question Where to buy IC parts?

    I'm attempting to mod on a network router so I can flash custom firmware to it. The procedure requires a MAX232, 233 or 3233 circuit board. I've asked around and people always point me to Sham Shui Po, which I suppose was inevitable. To save a little time from wandering around, does anyone happen to know a shop there that sell these things?

    You can check them out online before you go.

    The WECL store is at 201 ApLiu Street, Sham Sui Po. It's a busy place even on a quiet day. Look for the WECL sign, same logo as the web site. Exit the MTR A2 onto Apliu St, look to the right (North West), you can see it above the street stalls on the LHS of ApLiu St.
    Ground floor is mostly AV/CCTV stuff, go upstairs.
