iFixit teardown 2

We recognize Google made a few large enhancements on this yr’s Chromecast 2015 and Chromecast Audio, however their Google Store listings are kind of… smartly, obscure. If you have been curious to peer a few of the inner workings of those tiny dongles, iFixit’s were given your again. In a brand new teardown we get to peer now not best how precisely how the Chromecast used to be placed in combination, however the particular hardware parts therein.

Chomecast 2015 hardware
• Marvell Avastar 88W8887 VHT WLAN, Bluetooth, NFC and FM Receiver
• Samsung K4B4G1646D-BY 4 Gb DDR3L SDRAM
• Marvell Armada 88DE3006 1500 Mini Plus twin-center ARM Cortex-A7 media processor
• Toshiba TC58NVG1S3H 2 Gb NAND Flash Memory

Chromecast Audio hardware
• Marvell Avastar 88W8887 VHT WLAN, Bluetooth, NFC and FM Receiver
• Nanya NT5CC128M16IP-DI/EKDDR3L 2Gb SDRAM
• AKM AK4430 192kHz 24-Bit Stereo DAC
• Marvell Armada 88DE3006 1500 Mini Plus twin-center ARM Cortex-A7 media processor

As you'll be able to see, they’re lovely equivalent for the so much phase. Both Chromecasts function the comparable twin-center Marvell processor, however the Audio has part the RAM and a 24-bit stereo DAC module to take care of top of the range audio output. It’s beginning to make feel why each fashions percentage the similar pricing in spite of one coping with video and the different “best” dealing with audio.

One factor we discovered fascinating used to be the 2GB flash reminiscence from the unique 2013 Chromecast has dropped to 2 gigbits in the new fashions (approximately 250MB). Pretty large drop however on account that this tool doesn’t in reality grasp any apps (it simply handles all the streaming in an instant), it shouldn’t be an issue.
