[arm-allstar] Raspberry Pi3 Failure

 Pi board failures are very rare. The only time I have seen a failure was
when someone put 12V into it. I would say your failure is random because no
SW, SD card, or FOB could cause the problem. The USB has a 500ma limit per
port and a fuse that resets. Did you try leaving it turned off for a hour
or so and then restart? Fortunately it is not a big loss. If you weren't
messing with the IO bits, had a static discharge to the board or voltage
spikes from the power supply I doubt there is anything you did to cause it.
You might want to not use the power supply you were using with this board
on a new one.
