For a list of all currently documented VLSI chipsets with specifications, see VLSI.
- The datasheet notes the antenna connector type as 'Proprietary SMA'. The threading may be non-standard, somewhat like the Intel PRO/Wireless 5000 LAN PCI Adapter.
"Parrot 11Mbps" and "MAC V3.2" is silkscreened on the board.
- This access point is a No Wires Needed Parrot 1100, like the Compaq WL400.
This device is using a VLSI VPS10101-1 (Ruby II General-Purpose PCMCIA controller w/ 32-bit ARM6 core PR) and an AMD Am79C961AKC ISA Ethernet controller.
- The VLSI CPU is presumably handling the MAC + AP functions of this board.
Per the FCC parts list..
- the VLSI VPS10101-1 is marked as the CPU
- an Xilinx Spartan XCS10 (XCS10-3VQ100C) FPGA, not visible on the below board scan - presumably under the RF shield
- an additional 128k x 8 SRAM (UMC UM611024BSW-15), which is not visible on the below board scan.
- the RFIC collection is a motley collection Harris's PRISM (the original) ICs
- HFA3860 (IV) - BBP (BaseBand Processor)
- HFA3724 (IN) - QAM (Modulator/Demodulator)
- HFA3624 (IA) - RFIC (Prescalar + IF/RF)
- HFA3524 (IA) - DS (Digital Synthesizer)
- HFA3424 (IB) - LNA (Low Noise Amp)
- HFA3925 (IA96) - PA (Power Amp)
The power adapter included with the device is a Sunpower MA15-090 (9V, 1.67A).
- The device supports 40-bit WEP encryption.
- There is no HTTP interface on these devices.
- Configuration is meant to be done through SNMP using NWN's configuration software.
