AirPort Extreme which has a cooling fan, do not know whether it was because chip fever, or because Time Capsule hard drive’s sake.


Chip part is mainly Broadcom BCM53019 (router with gigabit switch) and Broadcom BCM4360KLMG (same as with the MacBook Air), and the remaining contain Hynix H5TC4G63AFR, Micron 25Q256A 32MB flash memory, as well as Skyworks 5003L1 (5GHz WLAN Power amplifier) ​​and 2623L (2.4HGz WLAN Power amplifier).
