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?
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.
