pic: 237's fried CMUcam



Team 237’s robot will come in under weight this year as we have managed to burn a hole through a chip on the CMUcam’s circuit board!

In reality what happened is the CMUcam was placed on a terminal of a positive wire and it cooked one of the chips on the board burning a hole through it. I wasn’t there when it actually happened so someone else from my team will be able to better describe the scenario leading up to this. We put an order in for another camera tonight.

I apologize for the poor quality of the pic but I photo copied the actual circuit board then scanned the photo copy when I got home. I couldn’t focus that closely with my digital camera. I drew an arrow toward and circled the hole burned through the chip.
