Friday Video: Dave Jones, That Crazy Aussie Bloke, tears down a Google Nexus 7 tablet. You know you have been waiting to see this

Every Tuesday, Dave Jones—aka “That Crazy Aussie Bloke” and the proprietor of EEVblog.com—tears down one or more tech items. This week, the subject of his ministrations is the new Google Nexus 7 tablet. There are many interesting system aspects of the Google Nexus 7’s design so I think this video is well worth watching for the design hints you can pick up. Besides, you know you’ve been wanting to see inside this beast since it was announced. Now you can, thanks to Dave.

  1. Interesting… This memory subsystem shares more in common with a laptop than a phone. If you cue the video to 19:41 you can see the DRAM is Elpida ED J 2108EDBG. If you cross-reference against the Elpida part numbering guide at http://www.elpida.com/en/products/pndecoder/ddr3.html you can see it’s a DDR3L part at DDR3-1333 speed. In other words, faster, but more power, than what you might find in a phone using LPDDR2.
