We all know that characteristic odor of fried electronics... when you "let the magic smoke" out of the chip.
Unfortunately it doesn't seem to set of ordinary smoke detectors, at least not at concentrations anywhere near the level where humans can smell it. The gas isn't visible, so it's doubtful that an IR or particulate detector would work either.
Is there a different kind of smoke detector that does detect this? Or a way to make one?
Looking for something to use as the "last line of defense" in a remotely-deployed (unattended) system.
