Hi everyone,

The company I work would like to buy a stock of Allegro ASEK-01. I have tried contacting the manufacturer (Allegro) but they are offering me only the newest version (ASEK-20). The product requiring the kit is now 10 years old and we cannot update our systems to accomodate for the new kit. Even if a newer kit was compatible, we would have to update our specs which would take us time and production is scheduled very shortly. Please if anyone knows where I could buy a stock of ASEK-01 or, at least, point me to someone who might know, we would really appreciate it.

Kind Regards,

Cadena

There are any number of Gray Market vendors who snapped up the remaining stock when the part went EOL. Expect to pay through the nose. 400% markup would not be unusual. You should have planned for this; it is not rocket science. Yeah -- I know. Bean counters never want to invest precious $'s in improvements.

Here are some possibilities:

Google "Obsolete Electronic Components"
I recommend starting with a small quantity just to make sure you are getting the real thing.
