Each MAX7221 (2) in my current design is getting very hot. I used the FLIR One to get a general measurement. I observed a 40C rise above ambient. I'm not sure what the root cause is. Perhaps someone has experienced this as well. I have attached the thermal image, see the cross-hair in the y-direction which represents one of the MAX7221. In addition, I also included the schematic for reference. Thanks, Brian
P.S. I'm not how the schematic will look. I was hoping to add a PDF version.
