For the Neoware thin clients there is a handy document from HP which you can use to identify exactly what you have. In my case the label on the back of the unit reads CA9 with a part number of BX-01-CC. This breaks down as:
BX Product Line G260 (The circuit board inside the box) 0 Software ? 1 Platform Windows CE C Flash Capacity C = 32Mb C RAM Capacity C = 128Mb
The basic specs are:
32M (max ?M)
512MB (max ?MB)
VIA VT8623 (Apollo CLE266)
1600 x 1200 32-bit colour
3 x USB2.0
Kybd & mouse
IEC (kettle style)
Dimensions W x H x D 240mmm x 42mm x 222mm
The circuit board fitted to the CA9 has silk screened onto it: "WinNET G260 Ver1.0". This is the same board I found fitted to the CA16. The only noticeable differences between the CA9 and the CA16 are that there is only one rear USB port on the CA9 rather than the two on the CA16, and that the power supply on the CA9 is internal.
For those to whom it matters here is some detail from Linux's /proc/cpuinfo
vendor_id : CentaurHauls cpu family : 6 model : 9 model name : VIA Nehemiah stepping : 8
The Neoware CA9 has an internal power supply. The power connector is the standard IEC 'kettle' style.
Both the Flash memory and the RAM in the CA9 are easily replaceable.
Flash: The flash is a "DiskOnModule" that interfaces via an IDE connector.
RAM: The RAM is a 200-pin DDR SODIMM. The 128MB SODIMM fitted to my model is a DDR-333. I've swapped it out for both a 256MB SODIMM (DDR 266 U30256A6MII6520) and 512MB GTEK DDR333 (PC2700 HYS1273216512).
