Atmega168 IC heating up

There seems to be something wrong with one of the new 168's i flashed. I had put it in another circuit and now i'm unable to download programs to it and it heats up like anything. What could be wrong?

Wiring error? You really haven’t provided enough information to help so all I can suggest is to double check the wiring.



Its placed on the duemilanove board now and is hot like a furnace. I think its dead. try avrdude serjtag on it no response to that either... :(

I powered one Atmega168 with 10V in one of the digital pins and the same happened, its dead.

Yep, sounds like it's time to give it a burial in the back yard. :'(
