How 'heated up' are we talking about here? '5 degrees of rise above ambient' heated up, or 'if I stream any longer my PCB will go up in flames' heated up?

The board heat is increasing approximately 8 degree Celsius form the ambient temperature.

I was flashed hello_world example. This is case there is no heat in the board.

After i flashed Camera_Web_Server example, then the board is started heating.
But Video streaming is working fine.

We have totally 4 ESP_EYE kit. I checked all of them having same problem.

Hi,
This "heated-up" problem has been noticed since we developed our image recognition solutions. Unlike the "hello_world" example, AI applications make the chip CPU run intensively, which generates heat.
Maybe you can try some external/physical ways to deal with it, for example, adding cooling fin, try not to touch it when it's working, or wrap it with some kind of shield)
