The Gigabit Ethernet port is supported by the IP1000A switch from IC+.

Finally, the indication system of the DSM-G600 is based on the universal 8-bit microcontroller Sm8954A from SyncMOS.

The WLAN module resides on a separate card connected to the main PCB via PCI. This is in fact a ready-made solution from RaLink whose products can but rarely be seen in serially made Wi-Fi devices.

The module consists of two chips: an RT2560F MAC-controller and an RT2525L RF-module.

Winding up this section of the review we want to say a couple of words about what the PCB doesn’t have.

There is a seat for a console connector on the PCB but the connector itself is missing. There are also two not-soldered connectors near the processor. Their purpose is rather vague.

One of them must be an output of the processor’s I2C bus judging by the processor’s pin-out. One more connector that might have been installed is a USB port on the front panel of the DSM-G600. A second flash memory chip is not installed on the main PCB. This must have been done to make the device cheaper.
