Fujitsu Siemens S200: Hardware 


 


 

 



Fujitsu Siemens Futro S200 Thin Client

The Fujitsu Siemens S200 is one of the larger thin clients around. It's neatly packaged and, although not as power hungry as the s400, does carry the same warning label about using it vertically with a stand.

A datasheet I found on the S200 is dated July 2004.

My S200 came with eLux NG as the operating system.

Power Supply

The S200 has an internal power supply and uses a standard IEC connector.

CPU

The S200 is fitted with a Transmeta Crusoe clocked at 800MHz.

The Linux cpuinfo reports:

Disassembly

This is fairly straight forward. First remove the two screws that hold on the front cover. The front cover can then be gently slid forward. I found it to be a snug fit and it needed a bit of gentle encouragement to move. Next remove the two screws on the rear that hold on the top cover. This can then be removed.

Motherboard

The motherboard is labelled as a TR5670 Rev 1.33

Expansion

Futro S200 circuit board

Flash: The board is fitted with an Compact Flash socket so increasing the size of the flash is easy. There is also a 40-pin IDE socket. I haven't yet experimented with that.

RAM: The board has a single SODIMM socket for DDR memory. Mine came fitted with a PC2700S 128MB part - MT4VDDT1664HG-335F3. A 256MB part worked. Currently I have no 512MB part to try. I believe the integrated northbridge of the TM5800 will only support up to 512MB of DDR RAM.

USB: There are two USB 2.0 sockets on the front and two on the rear.

PCI: There is a PCI socket. My S200 came with a riser card.
