  • Just wanted to warn everyone about some manufacturing quality issues that I have encountered recently. I received a Due in the mail last week, only to find that there were shorts on a couple of pins on the JTAG connector. The 3.3V plane also had a low-resistance path to ground -- but I didn't see any obvious shorts anywhere.

    I sent back the board to Sparkfun and they sent me a new one. I pulled it out of the box and AGAIN noticed that there were shorts on the JTAG connector --confirmed with the multimeter.

    Now either I am just incredibly unlucky to receive two boards with the same problem or there are some quality issues in manufacturing.

    Hope this helps.

No public wish lists :(
