Why is the 500 so hard to get? The 503, 504, and others are in stock everywhere, but NOOOOOO, can't have the 500....

The 500 has built in dc-dc converter as well as the driver. Also, the 500 is a 12A driver for driving large modules or multiple's where the 503 is a 5A driver and the 504 is a 3A driver. These are not capable of driving more then 1 module without having concerns.

Well, that makes sense. Still seems like they're withholding supply to inflate demand so prices stay up. But maybe that's just cuz I want them now.

International orders are welcome, inquire whiting.

Hi, mrBigh
Here it comes, the first international (overseas) order for your IGBT boards,
I need 3 kits at least. Please include VLA's in the price, also can you
offer me suitable IGBT modules. I'm gonna pay for overseas shipping,
so it would be better for me to get everything from single source.
I live in Europe/Bulgaria. City: Plovdiv, ZIP: 4000
Please give me shipping cost, and price for a single board with VLA included and if possible with IGBTs as well. I need 3 to 5 kits, depends on price and shipping cost/time.
Paypal is ok for me, and of course I'll pay you full amount in advance.

Regards

Sorry for the delay in replaying, I'm overwhelmed with work hours.
I will do the proper research and provide you some price quotes in a couple of business days.

I sent you a Paypal money request but I cancell it after reading that you went with another Powerex product. Tell me what to do.
Nevyn's Kit will leave on Monday's mail.

Any word on getting ready for a group buy on the VLA's? DigiKey lists them coming back in stock on the 17th, so I bet Richardson will be about the same. If we start getting a head count now, we should have money all sorted out by the time they're in stock...right?

*EDIT* Called Richardson on the phone. They said lead time is 30 weeks! Looks like Digi-Key is the best bet. Price is just about the same, as long as we order more than 5 at once (Richardson's minimum order is 5 anyway).

I put in a quantity of 500 and it said that they'd all ship on the 17th. So I think we're good to go even if our group buy hits 25.

Looks like they're getting 1,013 (weird size?) on the 17th. I put in an order for 1700 of them and 1,013 ship on 3/17 and the rest (687) in MAY.

Let's get this group buy rolling! I'm in for 2!
