Re: Identify this RAM... and some components..

Working from left to right. First picture contains the following:

* Echelon FTT-10A (model 50051R) is a twisted pair transceiver
* Some miscellaneous chip (can't tell due to blur)
* Xilinx controller of some kind (can't tell due to blur)
* ST Semicondumer Flash chip
* Echelon 803P-0001 chip is probably a RAM chip of some kind that's used in combination with the transceiver. Echelon stuff is certainly related to the yellow/orange port on the left
* Some kind of PLCC, possibly/probably a BIOS
* Texas Instrument controller of some kind (can't tell due to blur)
* (below the TI chip) Some miscellaneous chip, probably RAM (can't tell due to blur)
* (below the ST chip) Some miscellaneous chip (can't tell due to blur)

Second picture contains the following:

* (2) Texas Instrument LV165A shift register chips
* (2) Texas Instrument TL16C7528 serial (UART) controllers with 64-byte FIFOs. Think of these as your classic "16550 UART/serial ports"
* (below TI chip) Some miscellaneous chip (can't tell; don't care)
* Intel 82551ER 10/100mbit Ethernet controller with integrated PHY
* "Large green HSF" is, as myself and others have said, almost certainly the main CPU and might be a SOC of some kind (not sure)

Third/fourth picture contains the following:

* Miscellaneous chips that are probably shift registers or other simple logic chips, possibly voltage-related oo
* (2) Maxim Integrated MAX3241CWI RS232 serial controllers
* (Not a chip) Murata-PS NMD050505SC DC/DC power converter

Are the two silver ports at the bottom of the board USB ports? It's hard for me to tell. If so, that makes me wonder where the USB controller is, unless it's part of the SOC. It could be on the opposite side of the PCB too. If they aren't USB ports, okay!

Hope this helps.

They appear to be RS-232 ports using RJ-45 jacks.

Thanks! Those would probably be driven by the Maxim controllers then.

Not USB... but I wish the device had it sometimes! They are actually RS-232 ports. We normally use them to get into the "Serial Shell" to reset or reflash the device if needed.

The Echelon stuff is for LONworks. It is a communications platform for HVAC and control systems.

I was going to bring my digital from the house and take pictures with it (it is a 10MP camera with a better lens), but the battery was dead and I couldn't find the damn charger. Maybe Monday if anyone is interested...

Also, I can shoot some of the other stuff we use.... if interested..
