=== Chips and Connections ===

=== Solid State Drive ===
The solid state drive on the Eee is powered by a [http://www.siliconmotion.com/en/en2/products_FMCC.htm Silicon Motion SM223] CF flash card controller and 4x NAND flash chips from various manufacturers.
NAND flash found:

* Intel 8Gbit 29F08G08CANB2 (found on mine)
=== BIOS Chip ===
For a little while there was confusion how the BIOS was stored. Speculation about parts of the SSD could be used for the BIOS, integrated chipset BIOS, or a unknown IC-chip.
Turns out the BIOS chip was covered by a adhesive label and the part number is '''Winbond 25X40VSIG'''. It features a 8-pin 512K serial flash.

== Internal Upgrades ==
=== USB hub ===
To install devices internally, more USB-connections are needed. I hooked into one of the regular USB-ports and routed the D+/D- signals from the southbridge/controller to a 4 port USB-hub. To make the port I hooked into work again, one of the 4 ports is connected back to the USB-port (Hub-to-USB-port and USB-port-to-HUB).
I installed 2 hubs this way to get enough ports and load balancing the bandwidth. Having two storage devices on the same upstream connection is not a good idea speed-wise.
The reason I choose to hook into the USB-port and leave the spare Mini-PCIe USB connection alone is that I want to:
* Be able to use Mini-PCIe cards based on USB later
* Disable the USB-ports in BIOS and disable all the new devices
* Not have the devices disabled if I used the webcam or wifi connections

=== Power switch ===
* Integrated: Webcam, Wifi PCIe adapter, SD card reader, Sound card, Atheros eithernet, Atheros Mini-PCIe adapter
* USB hub: Bluetooth, SD card reader, GPS adapter, FM transmitter
=== Modem ===
The modem port on the Eee is stuffed with a piece of black foam and not used. The modem is not installed on any Eee machine but the internal connection points are still there. The modem card connected via a MDC v1.5 connection, and 12 pin header for the card and the 2 pin header to connect to the RJ-11 jack is still in place on all current 4G motherboards.
Asus is still providing the Windows driver for the Conexant 56K modem on their download site, look for [ftp://ftp.asus.com/pub/ASUS/EeePC/EeePC4G(701) Modem_XP.zip]
The modem card can be found on various Dell, Acer, and Sony laptops. On Ebay the Conexant card can be found under these model numbers:

* [http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?satitle=M5804 M5804] (Dell part number)
=== Wifi ===
The wifi-card on the Eee is only 802.11b/g, not the latest draft-N. The card is can be easily changed by removing two screws and unmounting the card from the Mini-PCI Express socket.
After searching around I found a Intel 4965agn 802.11a/b/g/n Mini-PCIe card for a decent price.
Since 802.11n is MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) it requires 3 antennas for optimal performance and range. I had a dead Nintendo Wii which happens to use the same antenna connectors for it's Broadcom wireless-card. The connector type on the Intel card is Hirose U.FL-R-SMT and on the antenna U.FL-LP-066.
== Other Possible Internal Upgrades ==

* FM transmitter
* CPU/GPU/Chipset voltage mod
* Silicon Motion NAND flash replacement
* Modemport - Wifi antenna, additional ethernet port
