Inside Story

The internal view pictures from the FCC ID filing aren't the clearest, but you can make out some construction details in Figures 5 and 6. The box is powered by a Broadcom BCM4704KPB wireless network processor, with a Broadcom-based radio (as you would expect from the "SpeedBooster" moniker). There is 32MB of Hynix HY5DU51622DT-J RAM (with an empty set of pads looking to be ready in case more is needed) and 16MB of Intel TE28F640 flash.

The USB port is handled by an NEC controller and I suspect disk drive functions might be the responsibility of the Broadcom chip whose number I can't decipher in the lower left corner of Figure 5.

It's disappointing that there is only one USB 2.0 port and I hope that the design allows for the attachment of more drives by using a USB hub. But the User Guide consistently refers to only one disk, so we'll just have to wait until the product ships to know for sure.
