The extent of my knowledge in electronics is that they run on magic smoke and if you let it out they stop working.
I found a thread on hooking up H-bridges prevented me from frying my EZb 4. I would like a one stop thread where we could post our experiences where we have fried our boards and other components.
I've gone through all the tutorials and have found additional info on the topic there as well. Though it would be nice to have a one stop shop for the combined wisdom of others on this topic.
