N900 Hardware Schematic

An N900 schematic appears to be at [1] and now on [2]. Service Manuals L1_2 and L3_4 can be found under e.g. http://www.google.de/search?q=Nokia_N900_RX-51_Service_Manual_L1L2_v1_0.pdf

This might not be the exact version of the schematic used to make the phone.

Revision is given as 2JH_21A on the schematic. However, the pictured PCB in the schematic is 2JH_20 - see above the third row from the right keys. A dissasembled purchased n900 showed a revision number of 2JH_21[1].

This is a brief list of what's where on the schematic. It generally only includes major components, and any minor components that have a direct bearing on software.

Offsheet symbol incorrect, connection to I2C_3 is via BTB(12:13). Probably, when fixing erratum on page 5, this off sheet symbol is no longer needed to make DRC happy.

[edit] Page 13 RF Part

Cellphone components RF block
  • N7560 - Aura DC/DC converter for power supply
  • N7500 - Vapaus RX I/Q sampling, TX encoder, connected to RAPUYAMA. Provides reference clock to GPS
  • N7540 - WCDMA Power amplifier TX

[edit] Note on component types and values

The schematics only use symbolic labels for most components, and abstract names made up by Nokia for some of the large chips (e.g. GAYA, RAPUYAMA). However at least most resistors and capacitors have their size printed next to them. So the simpler the component, the harder it gets to tell what it actually is - except for capacitors and resistors. For a lot of chips you can read the actual printing from body of component, by looking at the photos p. 14, 15 and at Joerg Reisenweber's highres scans [1].

This webpage[2] has a pretty decent list of components from a reverse engineering teardown effort by isuppli.com. Almost a BOM, if only they had added the symbolic labels or exact component locations to link back to the schematics. Comes even with links to datasheets, physical dimensions of component, etc pp.
