Robovero issue

Roger Unwin
Hi,

I received my replacement Robovero today.  I connected the mini USB to
the PC, and a solid green light came on.  I plugged in the adapter
from Gumstix, 5v 3.5A Center positive, and a red light started
blinking.  Good so far I think...  Then I touch IC6 ant it is
painfully hot.  This is just like the last board I had.

Can the folks at Gumstix comment if this is normal, and what the
function of IC6 is, and ideally why it is so hot?

Misc details:
     The board WITHOUT a Gumstix mounted is pulling 2W solid once I
apply power.
     I haven't let it have power for more than 10 seconds given the heat on IC6.

Thanks,

Roger

Re: Robovero issue

I am not from gumstix, but...is the ground to your computer/usb and the
wall wart/power supply the same ground?  If you measure from the shell
of the usb plug and the shell of the power plug is there a voltage?
(check AC and DC)?  Your 5V power supply may be floating or have a
offset.  what if you plug in the 5V supply but do not plug the usb in,
does it heat up the board/parts?

Re: Robovero issue

David,

Just to try to short circuit that test, as I don't think they
explicitly were (unless the board made them common ground)...

Without the USB connected, just the power brick, the IC6 still rapidly
heats up.  So the only 2 leads in are from teh power brick...

Re: Robovero issue

Hi Roger,

How are you measuring the 2W power consumption? I measure 100mA at 5V
with a bench power supply connected to V_Batt. IC6 is a voltage
regulator that brings the power adapter 5V to 3.3V. I have not seen
IC6 overheat but others have reported the same problem. I will try to
get the board you've returned for testing.

Re: Robovero issue

Roger Unwin
Hi Neil,

I am using a Kill-A-Watt with the gumstix wall-wart plugged into it.  This is the replacement board, so this is the second board that has had IC 6 heat up on me.  

I have a bench supply if it would be of value to power it with that and report back...  I can do that in about 8 hours...

Thanks,

Roger

The regulator may be hot, and all may be good.

What is failure mode besides hotness, your gumstix doesn't bring up a console?

Neil,

I tried with the bench supply to V_BATT and it pulled 300ma @ 5V.  Were you able to locate my last return for testing?  

And now the big question, is this issue field fixable, or does it qualify for a RMA?

Roger

Re: Robovero issue

In reply to this post by Neil MacMunn
Hi,

Given that the robovero is intended to be battery powered, the increased draw(1.5W vs 0.5W) is significant, and given that regulator very very hot, I can only assume it will eventually fail... As such, I would like to request a RMA, so I can have robovero that runs as coo, efficiently, and long lived as the one Neil references.

Sincerely,

Roger
