[sdiy] ALFA clone chips?
modular at go2.pl

Last time I bought ALFA chips, it was in quantities just above 10, and I
think it was possible then to even buy 1.
ALFA sells directly, just email them.
Shipping may be expensive though, like $40 or so.
Funny the subject poped up just now, as I finally soldered my Alfa chips
test-module 2 days ago. Picture attached.

>> Sort of. There's a company in Singapore who will strip off each layer of an IC and generate new masks but also an accurate schematic of the IC so you can make an exact clone or an improved version should you so wish. But they can only give you an estimate of deposition times and so you need to run a full trial and errors runs to get that right.
