Default IRFP240 source?

Are the IRFP240s becoming scarce now? I couldn't find them on mouser or anywhere else "reputable." Any suggestions for where to get these? Maybe my mouser search was bad? Or maybe someone has had good luck with a particular ebay seller? I'm looking to get quite a few so I can match them myself.

While I'm on the topic... Any guidance on what number you need to purchase to get good matches? Let's say you need to match 4 closely. You need to buy... 20?

Similar question on the IRF9610s although I would guess the answer would be about the same.

Depends upon how closely you want them to match -- if you purchase a tube you should get enough devices for 2x 4 sets +/- 0.02V.

I found that within a tube, when you match for Vgs the transconductances generally line up pretty well.

I've used these as an alternative to the irfp240, they work pretty well. You should have no problem matching 4pcs within a tube, I'd be skeptical purchasing semis from ebay; matched or otherwise.

You need matches only for the ones in parallel. Most of the time 0.1V
at the operating point is good enough, and you can probably get 5 groups of
4 out of a tube.
