Google Chromecast Review – An Awesome $35 HDMI Dongle. Brian writes-

Inside the Chromecast it’s also a simple affair, I took a look at the FCC disclosure for the Chromecast which had internal images up right after the event, and noted inclusion of a Marvell 88DE3005 SoC andAzureWave NH–387 WiFi combo chip. On the backside is 512 MB of Micron DDR3L memory and 2 GB of flash. The antenna for the WiFi combo is printed on the PCB off to the side, there’s no diversity or anything special, just a single PCB antenna.

The review uses our Monochrome 128×32 SPI OLED graphic display for the testing (Friedcircuits on Tindie).
