Plugging a USB cable into my Photon and crackle smoke
Connecting 3.3 volts to the 3V3 Pin…the photon still works as normal. Powering via Vin and USB…nothing. So I’d like to attempt replacing the voltage regulator and see if that brings my photon back to normal. The problem is that this component seems to be only available in bulk quantities.
So, does anyone know where one could buy the RT8008-33GB is smaller quantities? Also, is this part equivalent
TEXAS INSTRUMENTS LM3671MF-3.3/NOPB Buck (Step Down) Switching Regulator
I’ve compared the datasheets and the are very similar. the PWM frequency is the only difference I see.
