768-1008-2-ND replacement


I am ham amateur radio. I use an amplifier, Elecraft KPA1500, that have a USB port to connect to a computer for remote use that was burned in a lighting storm.

Elecraft support told me to replace two components: U3 and D4.

U3 is EPN E600417 FT232R,USB-RS232,32-QFN,SMD E600417 Digi-Key 768-1008-2-ND

D4 is EPN E560083 USBLC6-2,TVS,USB2.0,SOT-666,SMD E560083 Digi-Key 497-5026-2-ND

But 768-1008-2-ND is out of stock

Is there something similar that can I use? Or when will be available to buy it?


We have the same part available in stock only the difference is the packaging comes in tray packaging:

FT232RQ-TRAY FTDI, Future Technology Devices International Ltd | Integrated Circuits (ICs) | DigiKey

thanks Kristof

I bought the parts.
