    Evening gents,

    I'm wondering if anyone has any information regarding PEBBs, that is, Power Electronic Building Blocks. (See figure attached)

    I've tried googling around to try and find a venue from which to buy these blocks from, but I haven't had much luck.

    I did find one link from ABB (http://www.abb.com/product/ap/seitp322/03806c7d1658bcadc1256dfa00449e0e.aspx), but it doesn't give much information regarding the different types of blocks that they might carry, or how you can order them.

    More specifically, I'm looking for a block that I could use as a half H-bridge for a motor controller for an electric motorcycle.

    The motor for the motorcycle is rated for 48V, 100A continuous and 300A for up to one minute.

    Any more information anyone has on these PEBBs (such as where to find/buy them) would be greatly appreciated!
