Specs de hardware. Hay otra pagina para el firmware

  • Modelo SoC: Celestial semiconductor CSM1201, codename "ORION"
  • CPU: ARM926EJ-S, 220mhz
    • Arquitectura: armv5tejl (ARMv5 con thumb, dsp, jazelle, sin floating point)
    • Para floating point usa "NetWinder Floating Point Emulator V0.97 (extended precision)"
    • Las extensiones Jazelle (java) no se usan en ninguna JVM decente, asi que se puede ignorar su existencia.
  • DRAM: 256mb DDR2
    • 0-64mb para linux
    • 64-256mb - probablemente video (TODO)
  • Flash: 8mb
    • 0x00000000-0x00070000 : "u-boot"
    • 0x00070000-0x00090000 : "loader1"
    • 0x00090000-0x000b0000 : "loader2"
    • 0x000b0000-0x002b0000 : "kernel"
    • 0x002b0000-0x00800000 : "fs"
  • NAND: 64mb (Samsung NAND 64MiB 3,3V 8-bit)
    • 0x00000000-0x04000000 : "Part01"
  • Ethernet 100mbit
  • 1 puerto USB host (OTG?)
  • TTL a consola serial y bootloader
