You also need headroom for voltage spikes caused by inductance. They are a bit more difficult to estimate though...

Hello,
I hope to get help via this thread:
Two vesc died after I installed them on a skateboard. Not sure the reason but I set it to FOC controlled with current and regen brake -which I have already broken one other vesc on doing..
The board has no resistance when I attempt to power it from mains - it seems to be shorting out, and current increase to infinite after 3v
This time I can use a flir camera to see that the two components heats up when I power up the board: TC2117 and VP232.
There are no visible burns or broken components. -and there was no smoke when they died (not that I noticed).

Do you think I can just replace the components heating up? -or could the error be rooted in some other component?
