Re: exploring the alcatel lucent cellpipe 7130

The slot of the back of the PCB reminds me of a SO-DIMM slot.

Great work so far, I'm sure Teddy Boom and mlord will find this interesting.

that's weird looking oscilloscope, what is that? I thought it was a cell phone at first.

That's Mini-PCI, used for the wireless portion of the Cellpipe... Looks by the RA logo, the wireless chipset is RALink. It's crap.

the IC to the right is where I'd focus my attention. M29W128GL

128MB NOR Flash. That's likely where the firmware is sitting.

I've never seen a Mini-PCI slot I guess then, perhaps without anything in the photo for scale it's hard to see actually how wide it is.

The spring clips on the side are also the same for SODIMM though, but they do look like they are soldered to the board. Hard to make this out without an oblique shot. I see the RA Link chip within that area. I looked at this photo and realized I have Mini-PCI confused with Mini-PCIE »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MiniP···ards.jpg
