Ok, this isn't looking too good for a speedy delivery

I have just been speaking with sales at Richardson and they are calling IR for availability on 1800 FETS ......be aware, that on March 19 IR had in stock only 500 devices and Ilene informed me there could be a long delay. She will be contacting me sometime today (IR permitting) with more information.

The sales rep for Richardson said it could be as long as 12 weeks.

more news later.

Digikey has 5000 in stock, and you could get a pretty good price ordering more than 1000 pieces ($1.41 each). At these levels, you could also order directly from IRF.

Perhaps we can place 2 seperate orders, one for the stock they have, and the other for the remainder? The lead time should only be a week or two for the quantity in stock and price per chips would be the same, just a little extra shipping cost.

Speaking with the sales rep at Richardson, this is basically what they can do.

They can get 525 from IR, these will arrive in 2 weeks, another 900 will be available in the middle of April...the remainder in May...not good. I asked to speak with their account manager and they said that is all they can do!

Now I don't know how people feel about this but I'm not looking forward to it dragging out over a few months and obviously the impact to my credit card over that time. I won't bill people or expect payment if they are going to be kept waiting.

options that have been suggested!

make the order and distribute the FET's as they arrive and as the orders were added to the wiki...and damn the torpedoes as they say..this means late comers will be waiting a long time...sorry

drop the idea of going with Richardson and pay the still reasonable price from DigiKey $1.41 ea (which is the same as what IR quoted me for 1300) even though it is 50% over the price from Richardson.

scrap the whole idea?

up to you guys to convince me with reasonable arguments......if over 50% say they wont mind waiting I'll go ahead and order now...

Kevin, whatever you decide to do, I support. After all, let's not forget that you're doing us the favor by organizing the buy.

If it were me, I would:

1) order the 1425 pieces (525+900)
2) impose an order limit per person (100 pieces?)

Doing the above would serve everyone currently signed up on the Wiki. If there is enough followup interest, another group buy could be organized by you or someone else through Richardson, IRF or Digikey.

That makes sense. Nobody needs more than 50 pcs right away anyway, so that solution should keep everybody happy.

indeed 50 per person would be great. In europe I can get them for 1.40 a piece so ordering at digikey wouldn't give me much advantage over richardson.
And persons who are in need of more then 50 pcs can always swap with persons who have more then enough after matching.
