Burning Boards

Well, today was a fun day. I managed to burn up the CPLD on the Freescale evaluation board I’ve been using at work. I’m not sure if it was code that I wrote (though I don’t think so, I didn’t program the CPLD at all) or if I managed to shock it. My desk doesn’t have any electrostatic protection, so that is quite likely.

So, we’ve ordered a new one, so that I can continue to work. Still, I feel pretty bad that I burned up such an expensive piece of equipment. Better luck with the next one, I guess. 😀
