VoIP Telephone Teardown – with Serpentine Traces & Other Features

Inside every plastic-chassis device there’s a wealth of exploration and sometimes head-scratching awe awaiting you. Now what’s really crazy about this VoIP telephone is that it’s only from 2011…yet seems so ancient. I mean the iPhone 4 was already out by then, which really dates this tech. Nevertheless you get what you pay for and I always open up old electronics to not only inspect them but possibly to harvest them! I save pushbuttons and toroid core inductors – and a phone like this contain both! And then you sometimes stumble upon unique design choices like the serpentine traces surrounding the Samsung SDRAM in the image below – possibly to make the length of all the traces uniform or within a specified range? Weird! Always fun finding things like that in teardowns!
