When I connect the mag and power the Pixracer, the mag quickly gets very hot and starts smelling burnt. I have double checked the wiring and it looks correct.
I am now wondering what the problem could be.
According to this post, I do not have to solder any connections to use I2C (rather than SPI). Is this correct?
From the product description I gather that the voltage levels should not be problematic.
What else could be the problem?
