iFixIt Tears down the Flip Mino HD

Ooots outs outs. It’s Wednesday morning and there’s nothing you deserve more than a little soft house music and a Flip Mino HD teardown. The folks at iFixIt know you’re feeling the need so they prepared this detailed slideshow and teardown description for you and yours.

They got down to the money shot and found all of the major chips, including a Zoran COACH (“Camera On A Chip”), something I had never seen before:

The big players on the logic board include:
A Zoran COACH (camera on a chip) 12 processor featuring real-time lens distortion compensation and noise reduction.
Samsung’s 934 KMCMG0000M-B998 8 GB NAND flash memory for video storage.
One Samsung K4T51163QG 512 Mb DDR2 SDRAM chip.
Texas Instruments’ TPD12S521 to protect the board from electrostatic discharge through the HDMI port.
Cypress’ CY821434-24LXTI PSoC presumably for encoding signals received from the capacitive touch controls.
