8-Channel PWM or Servo FeatherWing Add-on

by Johndias831 on Mon Oct 12, 2020 2:27 am

Hello,
I recently received an 8 channel servo wing for my feather M4. The product number is 2928. Upon soldering the connections and hooking it up to my 5V 3A power supply, I noticed smoke coming from the board and it instantly heated up. The component that I believe is the FET reverse polarity protection was heating up to be incredibly hot, after some time it actually blew a hole in the component.

I can actually still run the board and it will drive servos correctly but I am really worried about the heat and the smoke. I would love to get a replacement if that is okay.
