    Did I get counterfeit parts?


      I have a Freesoc from SparkFun, and a part from digikey that we put on our product PCB, and they look significantly different.


      Here is the Freesoc part: Imgur: The magic of the Internet


      And here is our PCB : Imgur: The magic of the Internet


      The logos are very different, and some of the other markings are significantly different as well.  There is also some flaws in the plastic that make me dubious as well.


      No matter what I do I cannot program that chip.  I've verified my programmer works on the freesoc, but our PCB will not respond.


      Does anybody have any ideas?
