Continuous red flashing, chip gets hot

What wierd is that it starts up in blue and then goes to red, but the longer i leave it on the hotter it gets. dead?

Yeah, that is unusual.
Have you tried factory resetting it yet? Is it connected to any other external circuit?

Hey @contractorwolf,

Just wanted to chime in here since we’re also doing support over email. The CC3000 draws a fair amount of current. During the startup handshake or while in listening mode the CC3000 is very active – sending and receiving a lot of data, so it’s normal that it would get a bit warmer than when idle.


The CC3000 will run 111F and the Dc To DC regulator will run at 121F based on my testing under normal breathing Cyan conditions.
