after a couple of months of not using the gumstix today i sat down to
begin development for my next project
the moment i plugged in my 5v plugpack (used many times before) to my
verdex,audiostix,tweener sandwich the LED lit up and then started
getting dimmer and the tweener got very hot - i unplugged immediately -
i then thought even though the plugpack was regulated and was reading as
fine i would try usb to power the unit - and switched to a different
audiostix as well as my
2 seconds of the usb being plugged in (which has worked for me before to
power the device) and the tweener sent up a puff of smoke and the little
(im assuming) regulator next to the power socket swelled - immediated
so it seems im stuck without a tweener - has anyone got any similar
experiences with this? have i done something wrong?
