i need to replace a SN755518N VFD driver but none of the usuall sources
have it
mouser/arrow/avnet etc...

how do i find a compatible replacement ? or is there an old stock source
somewhere ?
or maybe there is a possiblity that some other obsolete device might have
one that can be nabbed ?? like vcr or tv etc any ideas ?

help greatly appreciated,

Try here:

Good place to do business... I've been very satisfied with their merchandise and
prices.

Guess you mean SN75518N. Use Google. I found
http://www.ersatzteile-onlineshop.de/gruppen/3101099000-43.htm
a German site, in a first try. But there sure will be more.

You created your own HTML Editor and named it after yourself??

Ever considered doing a code audit on your pages?

thanks petrus,
i have found stocks of eh SN75518N and other compatible replacements in many
places from Germany to HK/china etc but the problem is these are huge Chip
sales warehouses that only seem to deal with chip brokers, the chip brokers
typically have a minimum order of $300-500 US dollars which is magnitudes
more than i could fill.

thanks again for help,
robb
