[quote]Connecting Gadgeteer does not looks so easy to me.
There are multiple type of socket so it is easy to get it wrong.
Why didn’t Microsoft designed a connector with keying so we can’t connect a module with 3 analog signals to a socket with PWM outputs ?
That’s why I prefer to stick with breadboarding.
At least I know why it smokes.[/quote]
The analog voltage input range is 0-3.3V, hooking an analog voltage to a digiatal input won’t smoke anything it just won’t work right. Applying too high a voltage will damage something no matter which system you use. Shorting an output pin will also damage something no matter what system you use.
