Anyone with a Magic 3.1 a quick question
Anyone with a Magic 3.1 a quick question –
On the chip itself, dies anyone know if there is supposed to be a bridge between the legs on the chip? I installed 2 chips recently. The first install went fine and the second had problems. I noticed on the second install the bridge between two of the legs on the Magic chip. I don't remember seeing this on the first chip I installed. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
there is a bridge between the 5v and the leg to the right of it
It's okay, there is a bridge on pins 3 and 4 on the magic 3.1 . The Ubicom datasheets for the SX28AC (SSOP) point out the two pins are infact the same, so the bridge you're observing is not going to damage the chip.
Thanks for your help guys! I wanted to make sure before I installed it.
