The reason I made this thread was to work out what has been damaged on my VESC, I fried a DRV on a hobbyking 4.10 VESC because a phase wire shorted out onto the micro-usb plug while I was riding.
I know that the DRV is fried as there is a black spot on it. I am not sure wether anything else is damaged as well as the DRV chip, since when I power the VESC up, there are no lights that turn on, and when I plug it into the computer the BLDC tool does not recognise it has been plugged in. Does this mean that there is more damage than just the DRV chip?
I bought 3 spare DRV8302DCA chips from Mouser electric, https://au.mouser.com/search/refine.aspx?Ntk=P_MarCom&Ntt=113734323, and am hoping to repair the DRV myself, but I am now thinking that there may be more damage than just the DRV chip.
I am sure one of you VESC guru’s can point me in the right direction. (below are some pics of the VESC)
