Re: Testing TCB Firmware with Stock Arduino Mega

Hi Luke,

Thanks for answering.  My shield does not use the 5v output from the Arduino reg, but the digital pins do output a 5v signal, so too many outputs for the little reg they installed?  However unlikely that is, I did rob an old reg chip off a parts arduino and both new ones are now working fine (it is an 800ma output also), so as you surmised, it is probably the chinese made issue.

Oh well, I've ordered from another source so we will see if they will be more reliable.  I have two Robotdyn ones functioning okay, from older manufacture, and these two new ones failed in one week.....only discernible difference (to my humble observation skills) are the 5v reg stampings.
