I was talking to a friend about flashing circuit boards, and he was talking about reprogramming them etc. so i was curious, in paintball terms, what flashing a board refers to?
more specifically i have a angel with not heart and i need to put something in there, does flashing refer to adapting a board intended for another marker??

All of these boards have firmware [similar to software] programmed into them on a special memory chip or internal to the processor. The generic term "flash a board" is used to loosely describe putting new or updated firmware program into the "Flash" chip [memory] on circuit board. That is all.

Flashing is simply reprogramming a board or chip.
For example, SP is reflashing original SP1 boards to give them added fire modes. All the components needed for the fire modes were already on the boards, they just wrote some new software to give those capabilities to the existing boards. much cheaper than physically replacing boards.
I think certain DM (as well as many other) guns can have a chip reflashed with fire modes and whatnot.
