The Zune Guts: Memory Board Peeping

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 01:00 PM



When I was at the MVP Summit a few weeks ago, I sat in on a presentation by one of the Zune hardware engineers, and he walked us through the guts of the Zune. It was really interesting to see the parts up close, and in some ways, to see how simple it all is - so many of the parts are not multi-function that they don't need that many discreet components. The above circuit board is the memory board - what you're seeing there is a Samsung 4 GB memory chip. The Zune 8 has two of those, so the slots are full. The Zune-team-only 16 GB Citron Zune uses two 8 GB chips. And as Samsung makes their chips in larger capacities, we'll hopefully see the Zune retain the same form-factor, just get even more storage.

On10 Takes a Look at the Zune Guts

"At Zune Blogger Day today we got an inside peek inside the Zune and I mean an inside peek. We were there to celebrate the Zune Spring Update Version 2.5 but the Zune team got a bit creative and threw us a few other tidbits.
Here's a look at all things "inner" Zune."



Channel 10 has, sadly, gone over to an all-Silverlight video embedding approach, so I can't embed the video (there's just not enough people with Silverlight out there yet). Here's a direct link to a high-quality WMV version of the video.
