I am on my third Leonardo (and I used to have a couple of Micros too).
Lessons learned - be careful with the pins.
In the attached file you can see the chip that gets fried.
I have a couple of questions:
- can that piece be replaced?
- is there a list of dos and don’ts specific to Leonardo?
What I am worried about now is if I have the Leo powered independently and at the same time connected to my computer because I am reprogramming it. Is that dangerous? Would it possibly fry my computer?
And there are no on-off buttons, so is it okay to just push power into it?
Thanks - what fun, really!
