The following page is taken from Electronic Products, an industry magazine published by Hearst.
In the February 2007 issue, the magazine performed a full teardown of the 2Wire 3800HGV-B. The components on the PCB were categorised according to their type, function and cost.
The 3800HGV is consumer premises equipment (CPE) supplied by AT&T for the VDSL2 service it markets as U-Verse.
The 3800HGV is driven by a 2Wire Ares CPU with its powerful TriMedia TM3260 core used for digital signal processing.
