    Hi all,

    I just joined this site as I am in need of a little help.

    I am quite new to electronics, and just completed the picprojects 5x5x5 LED cube.

    I have done a search on the forum but haven't got any results for my latest problem.

    I suppose some of you have seen the LED Cylindar on the web,
    well, I want one.
    I have just about a full parts list now but I am having trouble with the Mosfets.
    The cylindar uses 5x IRLU3715's, which are no longer available, and no alternative is listed for it.
    The IRLU works with a TC4427a to drive it.

    Can someone assist me in finding an alternative for this mosfet please, this is the last part I am having trouble with.

    Thanks in advance for all your help and advice, everything is greatfuly recieved.

    If you go onto the Radio Spares webpage for this device here it suggests a number of similar products via the tab. The top one looks to be a good alternative, it just a case of comparing the specifications and finding one that's matches the IRLU3715, the STI45N10F7 looks OK.
