I PM'd you, star of 24! For the desaturation detection, they recommend some amount of time for an RC time constant, and the C in the RC is an 0805 capacitor, which really isn't that bad to solder, so I was just warning anyone that is going to use the control board with an igbt driver. one 0805 cap if you want to use the fault signal from the driver board! You can do it!

I wish I had more to send you Paul, but I spent it all on a LEGO set. At least it's a super cool one that was discontinued in 1997!

You say "should work" with the IGBT boards. This is the new controller board being talked about, right?

And, I ordered them! BAM! hahahahaha. But I got a total of 10 of the control boards. I sure am glad I got a couple extra. I just knew there might be an american straggler that actually is awake during the day, and asleep at night.

Thank you guys! It was by the skin of my teeth. $465. I was right at $423 late last night and you guys put it over the top! Hurray! I bet pcb cart is going to party this weekend with all their serious bank. Its that 4 ounce power board that really ran the price up there! 11.125" x 4.6" of 4 ounce copper is expensive even in the land of slave/political prisoner/religious prisoner labor!

Nevyn: yes! Whoohooo!!! In fact, I might have a little extra in the mix... You's my peeps! I haven't forgotten your financial help last week!

mpholmes@hotmail.com should be registered with paypal. I had told some people that it was mpholmes@paypal.com, and that definitley wasn't registered with paypal. It's just that I was tired, and not thinking straight.

You should edit your post 4409 above to correct the address. Or perhaps see if you really can have an @paypal.com account. I almost sent money to the wrong address.

Did you order the power section circuit board last night as well? I should have had my friend order one of those -- is it too late?

thank you for pointing that out! I just hcanged it. I can write to the people telling them I want 4 power boards instead. They will just hold things up until I send the extra money. They aren't the quickest in the world.

Hey you want a driver board to go with it?

How much?

You should probably put a $$ amount on all of the boards, just in case there are people that want to slip a few more orders in before they wake in China.
