  1. Hello, I bought an Arty A7-35T a few months ago. I'm a student in computer science, who wanted to gain some experience in hardware design. I never had any issues with the Arty until a few days ago, where I was experimenting with some configurations involving MicroBlaze and the onboard DDR3. As I was running some code on the MicroBlaze, I noticed that the FPGA chip had become very hot. I figured that this was normal, considering that there is a whole soft processor programmed in the fabric. However, when I unplugged the Arty and re-programmed it with a different, much simpler configuration, it quickly became just as hot. Now, even when the FPGA is unprogrammed, the Artix 7 chip quickly becomes too hot to touch. Is there any way to solve or debug this problem? As I said, I am studying computer science (not electrical engineering) so I'm a bit lost as to how I could solve this issue. Thanks! Gregor Edit: forgot to mention, the Arty still works! It runs any configuration that I program on it, it just also overheats very quickly and I don't want to cause long-term damage to the device.
