As said earlier that Google Chromecast teardown revealed very little on the inside of the plastic. It opened by applying small efforts. Inside there is the motherboard assembly with an empty shell.

After easily popping out the Chromecast shield, iFixit found that it contained a mere two items: a shielded logic board with an HDMI plug attached, and “a (relatively) ginormous” hunk of aluminum that’s the device’s heat sink.


On the board there is AzureWave AW-NH387 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, Bluetooth and FM Combo Module, Marvell DE3005-A1 System on Chip, Micron MT29F16G08MAA 16 Gb (2 GB) NAND Flash Memory and Micron D9PXV 512 MB DDR3L SDRAM.

Well if you missed anything about chromecast or want to buy it then head over to the Chromecast portal.
