replacing regulator 5v mega 2560




after burning the regulaor i tried to fix the board and i ld like to try welding a new one

are this ams 1117-5.0 ok to fix the the board?

thanks a lot

The reason it burned out is it is a poor quality chip, your link is probably the same chip. I would look for a reputable supplier in your country and pay another dollar for two for a real one.

I just wired a 5v supply straight to the arduino - Initially I replaced the blown chop but, unsurprising it just blew again.
