Hi Carl, You'll be hard pressed to find anyone selling one of these. Mainly due to the fact this is the number 1 component that breaks in the POD and there are plenty of broken PODs out there I did manage to create a substitute adapter that uses an arduino and allows you to see the C5 voltage and motor temperature which can be installed where the IC socket is without any modification to the POD or C5. If you're interested there's more information about it here. Failing that, buying a POD of ebay is the only other option unless some kind person out there will sell you just the chip?

Hi Dave, I have a couple left that I plan to use on future C5's and any forum members who need them, but I won't be putting any more on ebay.
