Aside: Frying ATMEGA16-U2 on Uno (R3)

[ Sudden Uno Death Syndrome ]

Looks like we have one potential explanation for why so many (3?) of our Unos stopped working when we are trying to drive multiple servos through them!

We might have ended driving too much current through the USB chip…but wasn’t USB limited to supporting 500 mA? One way to check this would be to replace the chip on the board. Oh SMD…
