Need help identifying SC70 "CFT" chip on water damaged board

Hello all

My sister is a writer, and she managed to spill her hot cocoa all over her MacBook. I have cleaned and inspected the board thoroughly, and I've only found one component showing signs of damage so far.

I know its a SC70 package, its marked with "CFT", but I can't seem to track down what it is, what it does, or a replacement part. I have found similar looking components, some of which are INA213's, but I can't identify this puppy for sure.

Can someone please help me identify it?

I have attached a photo below. It's not the "actual" board but its close enough to do the trick. I have circled the damaged SMD with red at the bottom of the picture, just to the left of the fan.

I just thought I would update this for future searchers looking for answers to their tricky questions.

I completed this repair after replacing the keyboard and around 15 SMD components. The computer passed it's Apple Hardware Test and ran without a hitch until we sold it in 2016. To the best of my knowledge it is still going! Have hope, ye water-damage repairers!

Jinajon, what are the last three digits of your computers serial number? This will help us to properly identify your computer and the proper logic board.


MacBook is A1286, but I don't have the rest of it - it's still at home. The logic board s/n is C02GJAFBDRJ7.


do you have an 820-xxxx number on your board/


Computer s/n is C02FQDQXDH2G. I can't find a 820-xxxx number, but I'll have a better look in a min.


Aha! 820-2936-B

Jinajon, your computer is actually a MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Early 2011. The part in question is reference designator U5410, which is a TI INA213 Voltage Output, High/Low-Side Measurement, Bi-Directional Zero-Drift Series Current Shunt Monitor. You can get the datasheet from here. The part is available at places like Mouser.com as well as Digikey.com. Hope this helps, good luck.
