It started off as a simple Speak Jet chip… Then I added it to my Antimov robot for the sparkfun competition…
This is all that remained of the arduino pro and the SpeakJet board I made after the fire.
The SpeakJet chip was fused to the board and required a bit of force to remove it. This resulted in the chip cracking and one of the pins falling off.
The chip was badly damaged so I see this as a challenge to see if the chip still functions properly :)
I epoxied the chip to keep the crack in it from becoming larger and very very carefully used a small file to get some copper exposed that i could solder a new pin to.
I still want to try the Atmel 328p from the arduino pro to see if it functions too :)
both chips were dead. Speak Jet chip just became very hot when power was applied, The Atmel 328p wont show up avr dude with external crystal attached.
