Last time I looked the files for AC were available on Paul's github

https://github.com/MPaulHolmes?tab=repositories

I don't see the PCB etc for the IGBT version of the DC controller. My board is older and I know it's not the latest and greatest. I can PM you the files I have ... not sure if Paul wants to try to support them though.

OK - I'll send you a copy as well. But you realize that these are not the latest and greatest .. right?

This is the latest I have

So here's what I have

Is this the 144v 500A controller or the newer one?

This is the IGBT version, so the newer one. It looks a lot like the AC controller .. there are 3 IGBTs .. but the outputs are in parallel and the current sensing is done as a group and not for each. It does high side switching for the DC motor instead of low side. If you tie the other motor lead to the +DC bus instead of the -DC bus, the controller does not appear to work.

Paul has been calling one of them Diahrea (I think it's the DC one), and Stinky diaper is, I think, the AC one. A marketing disaster if ever I saw one .. but they are his designs!
