Re: U1 fried
Ah, the TDA82822D part in the SOIC8 package is a good find.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Feeling much better now!
Digikey has it for a bit over a dollar (Mouser says a minimum buy of 2000).
Maybe hfsignals will move to the more easily gotten SMD part if they ever roll the board.
Though I'm pretty sure I could solder the SMD into place with just some short wires,
not bothering with the adapter board.

Yes, I think a 4 ohm resistor would probably do, I was getting rather cautious when I saw how hard the M part was to obtain.
I'm suspicious that with a 12v supply it is close to the edge, they seem to blow with little provocation.
Most of the datasheet seems to assume a max of 9v.
The fact that it works down to 1.8v reinforces this notion.
The fuse might protect it, depends on the failure mode.
The fuse costs about as much as the TDA2822D.
