Hey all, just got a Pynq Z1 board in the mail. I was reading the documentation on the Jupyter notebook when my arm hovered over the board and I felt some heat. After gently touching the various chips on the board, I noticed that most of the components felt warm or hot. I tried to put a 15mm x 15mm heatsink on the Zynq to see if that would solve any issues. It did not. I do not have a thermometer to measure exact temperatures unfortunately. Has anyone else had this problem, or do I have a defective board? Most other FPGA/ SoC dev boards I have worked with have not gotten this hot unless I was running something intense on it.
