XEM7310 blinking power light (I think I broke my FPGA)

Hey everyone!

I made a daq system on the XEM7310, and it seemed to be working during initial testing.
However, at some point, the power LED began to blink. Then, FrontPanel stopped detecting it as a device and a few of the components on the board began to get VERY hot. I checked all of the power and ground connections, and I couldnt find any shorts. I’m honestly at a loss as to what could be causing this. Any ideas on how to fix this? Or, if my board is toast now, what could have caused this, so I can get a new board and try again?
