Re: RAM Chip Model/Part Numbers or Spec?

Hi Gordan,

Has anyone got the model/part numbers for the Micron chips used in the AC100? Or the spec of the chips? I'm trying to find some larger capacity
 chips that will be pin compatible.

I forgot the extact number (must have been something like
MT42L64M32D1KL-3 IT)
but you will find out when you open it ;-)

Note: there is a special code on the chips which you need to
translate to the
partnumber (http://www.micron.com/support/fbga.html).

But I wonder how you will solder a bga...

Thanks Marc. I was hoping it wasn't BGA, but these guys have re-chipped non-DIY things for me before:

It'll probably cost a non-trivial fraction of a new AC100 (they are cheap even by netbook standards nowdays), but it'll be worth it if it leads to an ARM laptop with oodles of RAM. :)

I just have to figure out what chips are going to be compatible (need to find a Micron product list) and then find out what DIMMs have them on (I'm crossing my fingers that crucial.com support guys may be able to tell me that).
