    • one used for the wifi module and marked USB0
  • pads for ethernet jack
  • pads for +3.3V TTL uart tx/rx
  • one Hynix HY27UF082G2B NAND Flash (2Gbit - 256MB)

  • one 27MHz crystal
  • one TI DRV632 DirectPath™, 2-VRMS Line Driver With Adjustable Gain

  • appears to be similar design as the LG ST600 unit.
  • i added a usb host connection to the pads marked USB1. it does enumerate HID devices and mass storage devices.
  • next to connect a serial port to the tx/rx lines to check on console access
  • the board appears to have been originally populated with the ethernet jack and then removed.
