Now let’s check out the hardware components of the WL-600g. Its processor is made by Broadcom and is marked as BCM6348.
This MIPS32 processor works at a clock rate of 250MHz. The core has separate caches for instructions and data. Besides an ADSL interface, the processor offers two Fast Ethernet ports, two USB hosts, PCI/PCImini/CardBus, UART, etc. The processor’s ADSL interface supports all modern ADSL standards with all their extensions. There is a seat for a console connector next to the processor, but the connector itself is missing.
The router is equipped with flash and SDRAM memory.
The 4MB 9ns flash memory chip from Macronix (MX29LV320CTTC-90G) contains the router’s firmware.
Samsung’s K4S621632K SDRAM chips have a capacity of 8MB each and work at a frequency of 166MHz.
The router’s LAN ports are based on a BCM5325 Fast Ethernet switch from Broadcom. This switch supports VLAN and AutoMDI/MDIX features.
The manufacturer of the router didn’t use the processor’s integrated USB interface but installed a separate onboard controller instead.
It is a VIA VT6212 chip.
