clix and U10 hardware details
Enzo has shown the deteails how to open the clix and U10: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...r-clix-u10.php
Opening the U10 is surprisingly easy. Enzo wondered whether the clix board might be identical to the U10 2GB. The answer is: no. The 2GB model is almost identical to the 1GB and 512 MB models, I suppose.
He had shown those boards:
U10 (which memory version?)
Here's mine, a U10 2GB from Europe with UMS:
This looks identical. The memory on top of the clix is flash. But don't confuse this with the memory on top of the U10: that's just 256 MB of RAM. The flash is hidden on the back side, behind the battery. The big surprise: U10 is probably ready for 4 GB!?
known components on the clix board:
# CPU: ARM Samsung SA58700X07 (e.g. ARM 552 / SAMSUNG / SA58700x07 / NG004A0Q)
# Quartz: 12.000 MHz
# Flash: NAND Flash 2 GB - Samsung K9NAG08U1M:
2.7-3.3 V, Mode: Dual nCD & Dual R/nB, 1st Generation, 48 pin TSOP1 (12 x 20 mm)
might be replacable by 4 GB: K9NBG08U5M
# Audio: Cirrus CS42L51 (e.g. 42L51C / BB0457) Low-Power Stereo CODEC with Headphone Amplifier
known components on the U10 board:
# CPU: ARM Samsung SA5845 (e.g. SA58450X03 QA444283)
# Flash: Samsung 2GB (in U10 2GB model), probably K9WAG08U1A
This flash is available in 1GB configuration (K9K8G08U0A) and as dual chip flash with 2*1 GB, selected by chip enables (CE1, CE2).
A 4GB version of the same chip family is available (K9NBG08U5M).
U10 2GB shows an open place for another flash - 4GB of flash might be supported - or even 8 GB!?
# RAM: SDRAM 256 MB - Samsung 446 K4S561632E-TL75
# Mux: LV4052 Dual Channel 4-Mux (e.g. LV4052 / AS756 / Un605 / 23C) as used in H10
As a side note: The clix board names 'V10'.
An interesting question might be: what's the actual board within the V10?
Interesting info, traut, thanks...
While it may be fairly trivial to add another identical memory chip to the back of the U10 board, I'm thinking it would be a bit more difficult to replace the existing 2GB chip in the clix or U10 with a 4GB one and have everything just work....
there's a certain risk within - at least you should know whether the firmware would accept a wider memory range.
Maybe someone will just give it a try and let us know about ;-)
I am totally going to resurrect this dead thread, because I am doing something very much the same. I am thinking about transporting an 8GB flash memory chip onto a Zen V board that originally had a 2GB chip.
Does anyone know anything about this? How is this done? What are the risks? Has anyone done it?
