Thunderboard Sense DOA?

I picked up a Thunderboard Sense at Embedded World 2017 last week (sticker says BRD4160A Rev B01). Testing it at our lab here unfortunately it appears DOA:

 

Tried powering with 2 known good batteries

The  iOS app does not find anything over BT

The computer does not find anything over BT

Also tried powering via USB:

Simplicity 4 does not find any device.

 

Is the board DOA? How do we get a replacement?

Have you tried pressing all the buttons? A green light blinks meaning it is advertising. It can then be found on the app.

When I plug my sense into PC a blue light comes on?

If not I guess it is dead.

Confirmed that board is dead.

Have been in touch with SI labs  (and also ordered a new one via RS Online)

The board was dead. We replaced it. The new is confirmed to work.
