thankyou for noticing lll it is lll and not III yes? or is it 111, 1ll? ha sorry...

I dont mean to be rude, i've just been through this scenario of trying to get people to read the conditions of GBs and it just doesnt work, you arent alone and I dont think it has anything to do with language, or intelligence, its very confusing to me.

to be clear, before there is more people asking for fets, i'm not keen, I will not be doing another set to cater for the GB like last time. but the people already on the list asking for fets might be lucky

for you bigpandadahk, happy days!

Alright, I'll start putting the panel together, and hopefully order the boards in the next week or two. There's a one week turn on the boards, so that should give a rough timeline on when these will ship out.

Owen

multiply that by 100-150 and.....measuring gM at the circuit operating point is not like measuring IDSS. I have posted my method if people want to do it, but let me warn you it is not a task to be taken on lightly, as I did when I agreed to do it the first time. even with full on measuring gear, or a curve tracer.

the cutoff was before that post, as well as Ian as I had already mentioned to him I would sort him with a set. i've got a heap that I already measured but didnt make my grading last time and another 100 or so that havent been measured, given my parameters were more than 100x tighter than what Nelson mentions for his power amps I might find more sets by loosening the requirements and charging less for them, but i'm not making any commitment; the whole scenario was a nightmare last time and I swore to myself I would never do that again.
I will see how things go and I WILL have a look at what I have already tested, I will do what I can, but my time and tbh patience is limited

Well, since we already know the FET cutoff point, let's just leave the list as is and assume that everyone below the cutoff has it listed as a "nice to have". Perhaps if you get lucky with matching there will be enough for more people, but if not, that's just the way it goes.

To be clear, I'll be ordering 50 boards so the GB is still open until we hit those numbers. It won't delay the ordering of the boards however. They should be going out at the end of next week.

Regards,
Owen

My goodness, what have I started?! I didn't realize my single post would end up starting a trend with my mistake. My greatest apologies to qusp!

I have enough fets for everyone, but as it goes down the list and depending on my available time to test any more, the matches will be less and less effective. still better than just buying them as they will be selected, but unless I have a breakthrough with testing regime i simply cannot afford to put the time into it. particularly as it will follow directly after getting the LPUHP out the door and at the same time as getting the NTD1 PCBs out
