I'd be tempted to charge SS some serious R&D $$$$ - but then you run the chance of piz'n off your only supplier. Hmmmmmmm...... Let's put da lid back on this can of worms 'cause on 2nd thought there are some things better left alone.
PASS-SIT is different from R085/R100/R063...the latter group being SS originally spec'd designs.

If nothing else, it matters most because it helped to change the way of thinking about some devices. In today's digital world everything is thought of as ON/OFF state. Now Nelson showed to everyone that we should look for analogue nature of the device itself, the linearity, and 'the sweet spot'. I am sure this level of reasoning could be applied to many more things which we are blindly producing and using "as such" while they could be easily made different, if we are to think differently...

Mister/Poppa/Mentor Pass......

And might these new SiC semi's be available to us, the common DIY'er?

Might we see them in a potential DIY F6......?

Topic of discussion, perhaps, for the next Burning Amp?

Salivation has started...... The opportunity/potential is dizzying to ponder....!

The most often used IRF240 etc. etc. were originally developed for the same purposes. Back in the late '70s many of us DIYers were playing with these "new" things in our amps rather than BJTs. We eventually found several that were usefull. Although I worked close to some of the "TMOS" (Motorola) stuff, I was always looking for ways to get a hold of more of the Siliconix devices. Something like the availability of SiC devices today.
There are devices we've been using that were designed with "Linear Mode" operation in mind.

1) I understand that they will shortly be available through distribution in the
U.S. and elsewhere.

2) Maybe.

3) upcoming BA-3 does not use them.
