Picaxe 08m2 Hotness / Solved - Chip was dead.
March 25, 2013
I want to make a ring of light for my robot but when i try to program or just give power to the picaxe 08m2 chip it get's hot, really really hot.
- I just got the picaxe 08 proto board http://www.picaxe.com/Hardware/Project-Boards/PICAXE-08-Proto-Board/
- and the picaxe 08m2 chip http://www.picaxe.com/Hardware/PICAXE-Chips/PICAXE-08M2-microcontroller/
I doesn't matter if i put the programming jumper on programming or out.
I thought maybe a small heatsink would work, but i think it get's to hot for a small heatsink.
Does someone know what the problem could be? Or know a solution?
