Part Number: PGA308


After soldering the pressure sensor to the Vin1-Vin2 pins on the PGA308 chip, The PGA308 chips don't work, i think this problem is caused by ESD.

The Vout pin is fixed at 4.9V even though there is no sensor in the faulty PGA308 chips but I can write and read RAM and OTP data on the Onewire pin with the PGA308 EVM board.

Although we have taken all precautions for ESD in production, we could not solve this problem. We changed our soldering machine, including.

We purchased the PGA308 chips from DigiKey.

How can you help us with this?
