Netvoyager LX-1022: Hardware 


 


 

 



Netvoyager LX1022

There is no indication of the date of manufacture. At the time of writing (May 2016) Netvoyager's website shows this as a current product. However VIA's website shows the CN896 Northbridge chip used in this product as being 'EOL'. I think LX-1022 might have been released around 2010.

Once I took it apart I found that the hardware is made by Astec.

Power SupplyBoard

The unit requires a 12V supply with a coax 5.5mm/2.1mm plug. Something that supplies at least 2A should suffice.

Expansion

Click on the photo for more detailed pictures of the circuit board.

As far as expanding the memory it's just a matter of undoing one screw and removing the side panel of the LX-1022:

Flash. The flash memory is a 512MB Compact Flash Card. You can obviously replace this by larger capacity cards.

RAM The RAM is a standard DDR2 SODIMM. The one fitted is made by TLA and is marked 512MB 200PIN DDR2667. The part number is AD2SHH12S5WB-6EgE. The datasheet describes the RAM as a '512MB DDR-2 RAM @ 677Mhz'.

I haven't checked to see what the largest size supported is. However VIA's datasheet on the CN896 does say under 'System Memory':

and elsewhere:

...which implies a 2GB DIMM should work.

Mini PCI express


PCI There is a mini PCI express slot also available.

If you take the case apart you'll find some other connectors on the other side of the circuit board.

Power connector


Power There is a two pin connector adjacent to the power socket.

Fan connectors


Fans There are two points (only one fitted with a connector) for connecting a fan.

Sata Socket



Sata Socket The board is tracked for two SATA sockets but only one is fitted. (I'm uncertain what J1 is for)

USB connectors


IDE & USB There are a number of connectors grouped in the corner of the board.
Bottom right there are connectors for four USB ports.
The IDE connector is not fitted
