Expansion

RBT-616 internal view As usual, clicking on the photo (right) will take you to a larger scale photo of the circuit board.

It is fairly compact in size so there is little space to fit anything internally.

Flash: The Flash memory is replaceable. It's a DOM plugged into a standard 44-pin IDE connector.

RAM: The RAM is a single DDR2 SO-DIMM. The Clientron datasheet for the U800 says that it supports: "DDR2 400/533 from 256MB to 2GB"

Wireless: The datasheet does mention "Optional WLAN module" but I'm not sure where and how this is fitted.
