The problem is that I have an increased current in my whole circuit than should be, the required current is 0.26 amp, but I have 0.45 amp.
After conducting continuity tests, I found that one of the capacitors is shorted, then, when I traced what other components are connected to this capacitors, there were 3 more capacitors connected to it in parallel, as well as the main microcontroller pin Vddfl, fl here stand for flash.
How can I know which components of those are causing the real short? do I have to remove every one of them including the microcontroller and test the circuit? or there's another way?
A voltage is present in those capacitors of 3.3V, the resistance across the capacitors is 18.6 ohm, I didn't measure the resistance of all of them yet, only a sample of the shorted ones.
Also, just found out there're other 20 capacitors and 5 resistors that are also shorted to ground(not necessarily faulty) and also another IC that is responsible for power management that has one pin shorted to ground.
Also, the MCU has about 10 pins that are shorted, not only the Vdd.
The name of the shorted MCU is : Infineon Tricore TC1762
The name of the power management IC is : 40049 Bosch
Both the MCU and the power management IC is producing heat. My board is an ECU from a car.
