"Addonics did not list the processor or memory used in the device, but according to the company, the device is based on their earlier NAS Adapter, which according to a BlogOfRevelation teardown uses an RDC R3210 system-on-chip (SoC). The 32-bit RISC processor is said to run at 133Mhz, and offers built-in Ethernet and USB, plus dual DMA controllers.

"The 6.1 x 3.7 x 1.2-inch device is equipped with a 10/100 Ethernet port and a 2.5-inch storage bay for a SATA hard disk drive (HDD) or SSD (Solid State Drive), with a maximum partition of 2TB, says the company. With the help of a hard disk CF adapter, CompactFlash may also be used for storage, in which case the Mini NAS can be powered from the supplied USB 2.0 port, which can also be used to attach a network-sharable printer, Addonics says."
