AVT Announces Phased Shutdown
Please Read Carefully. Ask me if you have questions.
After 29+ years of business – I am announcing the phased shut down of Advanced Vehicle Technologies, Inc. (AVT).
Effective immediately (mid - 2023) I will not build any more products for stock.
When current stock is exhausted – I will not build any more.
You can check current stock levels of my products on this page: Price List
I try to keep that page up-to-date (as best I can).
You can call or write to ask for the most up-to-date information.
I plan to keep my office telephone number operational for as long as I reasonably can; likely through most of 2024.
I plan to keep the web domain “AVT-HQ.com” active through at least December of 2024.
I plan to keep these two email addresses active through at least December of 2024:
I will try to provide technical support, repair, and consulting through at least December 2024.

I will keep the company ‘active’ so that financial transactions can be completed.
My customers are politely but firmly reminded to pay their outstanding Invoices on-time.
AVT is still in-business; just not building any more hardware.
I will pursue late payers with zeal and will consider hiring a collection agent to pursue un-cooperative ‘customers’.
I will sell, on a non-exclusive basis, the right to build any of my products. (Exclusivity issues are negotiable.)
The price is US$ 10,000.00 for each product. (Price and Terms are negotiable.)
The AVT-440 and AVT-441 will be a lower price since ZF already paid for the development.
You can build AVT boards for sale to my customers and for yourself – there are a number of customers that want a source for my products.
The most likely products are, but not limited to:
The price includes, and may not be limited to:
AVT-440 (including the AVT-441)
Schematic, annotated parts list, board manufacturing files (Gerbers and related), most recent source code,
related development software, test software, test scripts, a sketch of the test hardware set-up, and possibly
I will gladly introduce the buyer to the Contract Manufacturer that has been building my boards. Using them might save money and time.
I have some production parts available for all three listed products. I will sell those parts, at-cost, to support the buyer's build efforts.
I will sell my existing stock of products, if the buyer wants to get going quickly.
If requested, I can provide the buyer with a list of past customers and I will refer all interested customers to the buyer.
I can also post the buyer’s contact information on the ‘AVT-HQ.com’ website.
The AVT-423 will require that the buyer resolve the CAN-FD license issue with Bosch.
The AVT-440 and AVT-441 are products exclusive to and for ZF. The buyer may need to resolve any issues with ZF.
