Topic: FRIED SERIAL PORT (Read 127 times) previous topic - next topic


I was working on some communication between MPU6050 and Arduino Nano. I tried to upload the program (done it many times before) and when I plugged the cable into Nano the Serial Port got fried (smoke came out). Does anyone know why this happened?


Need a circuit diagram to see what happened


Where did the smoke come out from?

You either connected 5 to ground, or connected something backwards which immediately failed to near-short. And your computer is shoddily designed, because it should have shut down power to the port when it saw something drawing enough current to make smoke.
