VESC CAN bus transceiver chip

It’s a long shot, but I’m wondering if anyone in the US has any CAN bus transceiver chips (SN65HVD232DR) as is used in the VESC 4.12 design. As you’ll see in my post, I recently killed an FSESC that disconnected from power during a ride and the regen braking current had nowhere to go.

I checked Mouser and Digi-Key, but they are both sold out and it looks like they won’t be back in stock anywhere in the near future. I only need one, but would love two if possible. Willing to pay for the chips+shipping. is a great way to find who has a chip in stock.

Looks like one is at TI, a big bunch in the UK, and possibly the G4 variant in a couple of places.


I wound up ordering a few replacements from AliExpress.

Does anyone one in north America have any of these? I believe it’s the source of my problems.
