Hi guys. As many of you know, SanKen is going to discontinue all MT-200 package power transistors. They will be taking orders for them until the end of June of this year. The minimum order is 500 pieces. Digi-Key, at present, has no plans to re-stock any of them. What there is in stock right now is it. When they are gone, they are gone. We can't stop SanKen from obsoleting these parts, but maybe we can talk one of their distributors into keeping them on hand for us just a little while longer. Here's what you can do: Call Digi-Key, ask to speak with the product manager, and explain your desire for them to restock these parts one last time. If enough of us call, TPTB at Digi-Key might have a change of heart and restock one last time. It's worth a try. While we're at it, it wouldn't hurt to call B&D as well.
