Hello everyone, I hope I can help. In the month of December, 2011, buy a board UNO32, MAX32 and the shield for IO, but the board UNO32 strangely when connecting the USB cable, the PIC32 is heated, I took into account the explanations regarding more videos in youtube and in I made ​​repeated email Digilent consideration of my problem that I have not received a satisfactory answer, I hope I can help or ultimately, this card has the manufacturing error, which can be possible and normal.

Thank you very much everyone, I remember that the jumpers are as shown in the manufacturer's reference manual.

Do you have a method to measure total current draw for the board? I haven't measured my Uno to see what normal current draw is but the processor draws about 150mA at 3.3V and the LED's are probably 10-20mA each plus some regulator and FTDI overhead.

I have no method to measure it, the problem is that the plate is new and should work to perfection, for example I have the board MAX32 and presents no problem, even I have carried out programs of medium complexity and work very well. I wonder if they can help you send the board UNO32 and sent me a functional? I bought this and then the shipping and everything ran on my own here in Colombia there is no representative of Digilent help me with the subject, is the first problem I have with this board, and I have several some of them are Atlys , NEXYS 3, BASYS 2, max 32, IO shield, among others.

Thanks for your help
