Topic: Will soldering blip fry my brand new duemilanove (Read 852 times) previous topic - next topic


Just got my first duemilanove in the mail. I am concerned about what appears to be a soldering error. Do you thing a soldering blip connecting the third and fourth pin from the top left corner of the EFTDI chip will cause problems (orient arduino with USB port in upper left corner)?   The traces look like they connect those pins anyway, but I want to be sure


sorry, I would link a picture I took, but I am a new member, and am not allowed. I took a picture, if anyone is willing to give it a look I can send.

I'm nearly positive that they're supposed to be bridged (connected), mine are at any rate.

I freaked when I first got mine too, but everything seems to work perfectly, and I've never had problems.
