"2976484100" appears to be silkscreened on the board.

Note: There are currently multiple FCC IDs which purport to

be for the R7500: PY314100258 and PY314300288.

Per the FCC photos..

  • The NAND flash is marked w/ 4EE17 NW360 (FBGA code NW360):


According to these slides (referenced at the SmallNetBuilder link below),

this device is using a dual-core processor running at 1.4 GHz.

This would indicate that it is not using Broadcom's BCM4709,

but more likely a Qualcomm Atheros IPQ8064
(w/ a noted max. clock of 1.4 GHz, per Anandtech)
... or perhaps a Marvell Armada XP/375/385.
