I made this account in order to see how easy is to damage my new AVR-Dragon and some hints to keep it safe.
Now i have played with it for a while and at some point i mirrored the connections for JTAG(what was supposed to come on the left header was on the right and vice versa).What are the possibilities to have crippled it considering it worked after redoing the wiring?(both JTAG and ISP worked fine after)
Also i have a smd rework station to replace parts ,but what are the parts that usually fail....someone said the analog switches ( NLAS2066USG) and the input boost regulator.Are there other exceptions? Does the Dragon have built-in protection resistors to defend against over current on some lines due to accidental short or what not?
