Feather M0 overheating?

by awilzman on Fri Oct 15, 2021 2:26 pm

Just received Adafruit Feather M0 Bluefruit LE and I haven't been able to upload a sketch successfully yet. I have the correct board installed and selected in the Arduino IDE, and all necessary packages and files installed. The code compiles fine (example sketch), tries to upload, then LEDs go out on the board and the IDE responds by saying there is no board connected to the chosen port anymore. A second try yields an error with a code SAM-BA operation failed.

I've noticed the chipset gets incredibly hot (too hot to touch) while uploading and if it stays connected after the error.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can you post a picture of the feather and tell me what part is getting hot? Thanks.

The main processor is what's getting hot.
