There are a lot of components installed in the DS107+. We could find little information about some of them, so we’ll just name the main chips used.

The DS107+ is based on Marvell’s Orion 88F5261 chip. This System-on-a-Chip controller incorporates an ARM9 processor clocked at 500MHz, provides PCI and PCI Express interfaces, contains a Gigabit Ethernet controller, etc.

Our sample of the DS107+ comes with 64 megabytes of system memory (there exists a 128MB version of the device) in two 32MB DDR SDRAM chips (Winbond W9425G6DH).

The firmware is stored in a 4MB Spansion S29AL032D90 flash memory chip.

The Gigabit Ethernet port is based on an 88E1118 controller from Marvell you can meet on mainboards.

The GL850A host-controller is responsible for the three USB ports the DS107+ offers.

The two SATA ports are supported by the SiI1512EC10 controller from Silicon Image. This chip is frequently installed on mainboards, too. It supports two SATA ports with RAID functionality.

 

The device’s controls and indicators are based on PIC16F627A and LC4032V chips.

 

There are consoles for these two chips on the PCB, but the console connector for the PIC chip is not installed. The processor is accompanied with two consoles, one of which is not installed. Judging by the number of contacts, the missing console is UART while the installed one looks like an I2C bus.
