Spend some time hacking hardware and you’ll eventually render a piece of equipment unusable. This presentation provides examples of common mistakes that can temporarily or permanently damage electronic systems and ways to recover, if possible.
The proliferation of electronic modules, development tools, and do-it-yourself communities has led to a world where the creation of hardware projects is accessible to people of all skill levels. With dedication and a willingness to learn, explore, experiment, fail, and succeed, one can build just about anything that comes to mind.
