Today I'm writing about the Buffalo LinkStation PC-L4PWAP. It was on clearance at Circuit City, so I thought I'd take a chance and pick it up. At the very least, I'd have a new 'receiver' on my network to play tunes through at parties.
I cracked it open when I got it home. There's a Phillips PNX-1520E processor running at 300MHz inside. A quick web search turned up that it has a TM3260 CPU core with a lot of perripherals (I2C, PCI, IDE, etc). The TM3260 is a CPU from Phillips that is a VLWI processor. I had rather hoped when I saw pnx that it had one of their MIPS cores in it. But no such luck.
I didn't bother looking at the amount of memory or the amount of flash on the board once I discovered it wasn't MIPS based. I guess I'll have to content myself with listening to the music it is spooling off a uPNP server on my network... once I get one of them setup. I'll report back on how well it works.
