FCC ID: TE7C9V5
The main chip is a:
with these characteristics:
Communications Processor with Network Acceleration Hardware
Communications device targeted for applications in switching control and management, and residential router/gateway.
The BCM4707/4708/4709 family includes the BCM4707, BCM4708 and BCM4709. At the center of the device is a high-performance 1 GHz ARM® Cortex™-A9 dual-core with a 32 KB four-way set associative instruction cache, a 32 KB four-way set associative data cache and a 128-entry translation lookaside buffer (TLB). Enhanced CPU memory subsystem architecture provides increased system performance. The device uses 40 nm technology.
Advanced ARM® Cortex™-A9 Dual-Core
32 KB I-cache and 32 KB D-cache per core
Snoop Control Unit (SCU) with ACP interface for I/O coherency
256 KB L2 Cache (shared)
SMP and AMP capable
Single-processor core operation configurable
Advanced Gigabit Ethernet
Eight ports with full-line rate
Five 10/100/1000 PHY ports
Support for lot 6 power standard
Hardware Flow Accelerator
Implements the 3-stream 802.11ac specification to enable speeds up to 1.3 Gb/s in access points, routers, DSL/cable gateways and PC products.
The single-chip dual-band transceiver integrates all the major functional blocks needed to implement a complete 802.11ac wireless sub-system, including radio, baseband and Media Access Control (MAC). This highly integrated solution provides the increased coverage and throughput performance required for high-quality video and media applications in the home and enterprise. Access points, routers, PC notebook computers and digital TV/ media devices enabled with the BCM4360 can have greater than gigabit speeds over Wi-Fi networks.
1.3 Gb/s PHY rate performance offering over 3 times performance of three-stream 802.11n devices
Dual-band operation compatible with Not Recommended for New Design 802.11n networks
80 MHz bandwidth is 2 times wider than current 802.11n solutions
256-QAM, a higher modulation scheme that increases data transfer efficiency
802.11ac-compliant transmit and receive beamforming for extended coverage for 802.11ac and Not Recommended for New Design devices
Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) Codes for increased rate at range
PCI Express® 2.0 host interface
Enhanced Bluetooth coexistence interface support for seamless BT + 5G WiFi operation
I'll work on that this weekend. I know I can dump flash to usb from the console. I'll get as much as I can posted as I can. I know someone has already posted FCC info, will the already posted FCC pics be enough or should I supply more?
