ODA project prices for PC boards and parts
The ODA is about 1/2 surface mount parts, although the parts used are the larger "1206" size.
Sorry but no parts kits for sale due to the chances of getting a bad part and having to re-ship, plus the time and cost involved in bagging up everything and labeling it. You get your money’s worth from Mouser and Digikey! Everything is labeled, static sensitive stuff is in proper anti-static bags, and (at least in the US) Mouser is good about sending out replacements for defective parts for free. The BOM with all the part numbers is posted at the project Google Drive link, with part numbers at Mouser and Digikey Electronics, plus a few at Allied Electronics and the Farnell UK site. If you find a BOM part is out of stock at the distributors, please let me know. I can probably help you locate an alternate part number.
ODA bare PC board package, 100mm x 160mm double-sided, 4 layer, gold (ENIG) finish = $55.00. The PC board comes with these parts included in the $55.00 (you don't need to buy these BOM items):
Fully assembled an cased ODA. This can include the optional top-slot ODAC carrier board with an ODAC mounted on it. Includes the front and rear panel ($110 total actual cost from Front Panel Express for the two panels). ODAs are built to order, so you have your choice of case colors and other features. Please contact me for pricing.
Shipping is actual cost, which for US destinations (for all except the fully assembled ODA or ODA board) is the USPS "priority mail parcel" rate of $7.90 and does include tracking. Due to the heat sinks included with the board package it will be shipped in a box, rather than a padded envelope, to protect the fins.
For the fully assembled & cased ODA the shipping to US destinations is via the USPS "priority mail medium flat rate box" service which they charge $15.90 for, and includes tracking and postal insurance, plus an additional $3 to bump the included $50 postal insurance up to full value. The priority mail also gets there pretty reliably in 2 or 3 days (goes by air). The rigid box protects the fully assembled board and the postal insurance covers it in case they loose the package
For destinations outside the US our post office here unfortunately is rather pricey. Their lowest rate for a box with all these parts is "first class international small package, greater than 8oz rate", which they say typically takes 10-14 days, for $22.70 (they base it on both box size and weight). The customs form number will actually work as tracking, just enter it in at the USPS.com website tracking page, but the tracking usually stops when the package leaves the US. The "first class international small package, greater than 8oz rate" rate is OK for bare board packages, but for assembled amps that are thicker their next step up will be required, which is "first class international medium package" for $47.00 up to a certain weight and size. That one does include tracking to some countries. Again these are actual cost, no markup, and should be listed out at usps.com. Sorry but I have to declare the full value of the invoice on the customs form. Some countries charge (fairly large!) taxes on incoming shipments, so please check into your country's rules to avoid a surprise.
Payment via PayPal (select the "payment for mechandise" option and I pay the fee), please PM me for the PayPal address. The PayPal fee also has to be added to the order, 2.9% of the total + $0.50 for orders in the US, 3.9% + $0.60 for outside of the US. Please make sure you are having PayPal transfer the money into US dollars. I only accept PayPal, sorry no checks or other payment methods.
Example 1: ODA bare board package (includes the parts in the list above) + shipping to the US = $55.00 + $7.90 (US priority parcel shipping) + $2.32 (US PayPal fee 2.9% + $0.50) = $65.22.
Example 2: ODA bare board package (includes the parts in the list above) + shipping internationally = $55.00 + $22.70 (first class international small package, greater than 8oz rate) + $3.63 (international PayPal fee 3.9% + $0.60) = $81.38.
Example 3: $55 ODA bare board package (includes the parts in the list above) + $5.53 (LT1963AET#PBF positive LDO voltage regulator (Digikey part)) + $6.41 (LT3015ET#PBF-ND negative LDO voltage regulator (Digikey part)) + $47.16 (12 4.7uF 5% WIMA film capacitors (Mouser out of stock)) shipping internationally = $114.10 + $22.70 (first class international small package, greater than 8oz rate) + $5.94 (international paypal fee 3.9% + $0.60) = $142.79.
