I am looking to buy imaging sensors but the manufacturers are reluctant to engage because of low volume production. I don't have an NDA nor any official datasheets. However, there are leaked datasheets online. Also distributors (Avnet, Arrow, Digi-key etc.) have the particular sensors in stock and theoretically I could put in an order.
Now, would the order go through? And is there a danger of being found out by manufacturers for going against their wishes?
