IGBT driver board
 
1 Attachment(s)
Finally I have the parts that do go along the IGBT driver board for the Paul & Sabrina revolt controller board. Based on Powerex electrical design and Paul's PCB art layout.
I will be supplying the bare PCB and the PC board with almost all parts, excluding the VLA500-01 and the 2 gate power resistors.
Gate resistors (R3 and R7) depend on the preferred IGBT to be use, values will be in the range of 1.5 to 12 Ohms, 2 Watts dissipation.
Parts will be supplied populated on the board but unsolder to minimize parts bagging, labeling and placement mistake.
The parts kit:
6 Zenner diodes
2 Ultra fast recovery diodes
5 resistors
2 Optoisolators
5 electrolytic cap.
2 right angle connector headers
1 straight connector header
3 header connector sockets
12 gold crimp/solder pins

All parts distribution will be handled by USPS flat rate mailers in continental USA.
International orders are welcome, inquire whiting.
Payment will be through PAYPAL.

I'll take 2! What's the availability on the vla modules?

JasonG 02-01-2011 07:23 AM

While I am planning to go AC, I wanted to say way to go !

Thanks for pulling the pieces together for those who don't know their way around the suppliers.

I was wondering, have the boards been checked for accuracy? I know there a simple design and Paul is at the top of his game just wondering have they been checked for errors? or tested?
but I still want 2, where is the paypal link?
thanks

I checked the circuit layout against the schematic and is OK.
TEST it, not. We haven't purchase the VLA500-01 yet. We need at least a 5 pieces minimum order; I'm good for 2 at least.
I will send you the Paypal contact info after I get the USPS charges, sidetracked by the snow by hell, if you know what I meant.

In a 5 pieces minimum order, each will be u$s40.00 a piece plus postage.
Not to bad.

jackbauer 02-01-2011 01:56 PM

Ok well i'll need two vla modules. If we can't get 5 people i'll take up the slack.

billhac 02-01-2011 01:58 PM

ok, i will take 5, just send me your payment info, boards will come populated, minus gate resistors and vla, ok by me

Nevyn 02-01-2011 05:11 PM

I'm in PM conversation with mrbigh now; trying not to sound like a dunce in front of everyone. I may be in for one board kit and 2x VLA's as well.

Where are the VLA's coming from? Best I found was $37.78 from Richardson:

VLA500-01 Powerex HVIC - Richardson Electronics Ltd

billhac 02-01-2011 05:32 PM

yep, i saw them there, not many availible though, only 36 in stock

Richardson is the only source right now.
I will be able to place the order for the VLAs and distribute them with the PC boards.

billhac 02-02-2011 01:21 AM

sounds good to me, i'll be ready to order next week.

I just noticed 2 parrallel threads for the same thing this one and the one in the for-sale area, witch one do we fallow?

I opened the "For Sale" only to have more expossure, really doesn't mater.

Nevyn 02-05-2011 07:12 PM

I'm in for two VLA's and a board kit. I can send monies on Wednesday, is that okay?

Nevyn 02-05-2011 09:22 PM

Why don't these IGBT's have 3 terminals on the top?

Ah, thanks for the clarification. :)

Nevyn 02-08-2011 02:12 PM

Do we have enough takers on the VLA's to hit the second discount? That'd be crazy and awesome!

No yet and I do not think we will ever reach the second discount tier in one single order very soon, but I keep my hopes.
Eventually, we will be a bunch of DIY with a P&S motor controller IGBT based with :) faces............

MPaulHolmes 02-09-2011 12:14 AM

There is no demand for electric vehicles, so they crushed all of the VLAs. haha

Man, that really sucks!!!! we will have to be in the look out for another source.....

Nevyn 02-09-2011 02:42 PM

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


Find VLA500 Stock and Compare Prices. FindChips. Compare VLA500 across 20 Electronics Component Distributors.

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.

Nevyn 02-15-2011 09:04 AM

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. :thumbup:

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.

alfie 02-27-2011 09:00 AM

hi mrbigh,
sorry for the delay, i've send you via paypal funds for igbt kits,
with included fee for overseas shipping to Bulgaria,
but I've forgot to change my shipping address, but I can't send
you p.m. because i have only few postings,
can you write me straight to my e-mail:
khristozov "at" dir.bg, so I can reply you the proper shipping
address.
thank you
regards

things are very tight right now I couldn't order the kits but maybe next time :)

This are on your way.......:)

Nevyn 03-04-2011 10:51 AM

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!

mrbigh 03-05-2011 08:19 PM

Vla500-01
 
Guys, for a moment I will be out of the race in this group buy.
Last week I placed an order for 12 pieces to fulfill full IGBT KITS paid orders. Digikey is the supplier on these.
Horacio

Nevyn 03-07-2011 10:05 AM

Agh, bust! I didn't know that you were ordering them even though they were out of stock at that time!

Anyone who didn't order them the first time around, and wants in on this group buy of VLA500-01's, PM me and I'll take care of managing the group buy this time around. LouMan, even if it's just you and me that's still 6 units and enough to get 'em down to the first discount level.

Nevyn 03-09-2011 01:52 PM

Say what? Rotten fiends! It used to be the first discount came at 5! Evil.......

We'll order separate. Such is life. :(

Do you have boards available for sale? What is the price? Can I get 2 ?

What is the latest on Vla500-01? Group buy?

Can you contact me through my website 1-ev.com ?

Thank you.

mrbigh 03-18-2011 11:42 AM

Yes, bare PC boards are still available and in parts KIT form to.
Price and KIT description is posted in POST #1 of this thread.
Right now there is NOT a Group buy on the VLA500-01, we where sold out by the nicer price distributor.

Sorry I havent been keeeping up with this thread. So are there any suppliers for the vla module at this time?

Not a single one at the moment.......
It seems that the manufacturer, Powerex, will release there production by mid May.

The VLA500-01 sounds like a good canidate to be reverse engineered ???

MPaulHolmes 03-19-2011 09:39 PM

I was thinking that same thing today. Maybe if we cut the stupid plastic off of one, and see what all those bulges are. It's got to be really simple. Some sort of transformer, and a few capacitors and resistors and who knows what.

1-ev.com 03-22-2011 03:45 AM

Does NOT look like a FREE market to me, ha....
