Teardown Chromebook’s hardware is key
拆解显示Chromebook的硬件是关键
?
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.’s Series 5 Chromebook--the first of a new class of computers that use only Web-based apps and services--carries a bill of materials (BOM) of $322.12 and features hardware commonly found in a notebook computer, according to a teardown analysis performed by market research firm IHS iSuppli. Intel Corp., Infineon Technologies AG, SMSC Corp., Texas Instruments Inc. and others supply chips for the system, according to the analysis.?
三星电子的Series 5 Chromebook是首款只采用Web程序与服务的新品种电脑。根据HIS iSuppli的拆解,它的物料成本(BOM)322.12美元,硬件与普通笔记本电脑中的相仿。英特尔、英飞凌、SMSC、德州仪器等厂商为该系统提供了芯片。
?
Google Inc. announced at its annual development conference last month that Samsung and Acer Inc. would begin shipping this month Chromebooks, named for Google’s Chrome Web browser and operating system. The new class of thin-client network computer is expected to challenge netbooks and low-end notebooks. The Chromebook resembles a value notebook or 3G netbook in terms of features and connectivity, according to the firm.
Google在上月举行的年度开发大会上宣布三星和宏碁的Chromebook将从本月开始出货。Chromebook这名字来源于Google的Chrome浏览器和Chrome OS操作系统。这种新的瘦客户端联网电脑将会挑战上网本和低端笔记本电脑。Chromebook在功能和连接性方面与廉价笔记本或3G上网本相仿。
?
According to the IHS teardown analysis, Samsung’s Series 5 Chromebook sports attributes commonly found in a full-featured notebook, including a high-quality 12.1-inch display, a full day (8.5 hours) of battery life, a new dual-core Atom processor, 2 gigabytes (GB) of memory and a 16-GB solid state drive.
根据HIS的拆解分析,三星Series 5 Chromebook的硬件与全功能笔记本电脑中的相同,包括一块高质量的12.1英寸屏幕、支持全天(8.5小时)工作的电池续航能力、新款双核Atom处理器、2GB内存和16GB固态硬盘。
?
The $322.12 BOM, plus $12.20 for manufacturing costs, brings the total price to produce each Samsung Chromebook to $344.32, according to IHS. Samsung has been retailing its first Chromebooks for around $500.
322.12美元的物料成本和12.20美元的生产成本使每一台三星Chromebook的成本达到344.32美元。三星给出的零售价在500美元左右。
?
“The Samsung Series 5 Chromebook is every bit a full-sized notebook PC—just don’t call it that,” said Wayne Lam, senior analyst, competitive analysis, at IHS, in a statement.
HIS高级分析师Wayne Lam在一份声明中说:“三星Series 5 Chromebook完全是一台全功能笔记本电脑——只是不这么叫。”
?
Lam said the Chromebook—which features Google’s Chrome OS—represent the search engine giant’s first commercial implementation of its web-centric vision designed to entice users to move away from standalone computers to the cloud network storage medium. “But as much as Google would like to de-emphasize the role of user hardware, it is the hardware, in fact, that defines the Chromebook and will determine the success of the platform,” Lam said.
Lam说预装Google Chrome操作系统的Chromebook代表着搜索引擎巨头以web为中心设计的首次尝试,目标是诱使用户离开独立的电脑改用云网络存储媒介。Lam表示:“尽管Google希望不再强调用户的硬件,但实际上Chromebook还是由硬件来定义,这个平台的成功依然由硬件决定。”

The Chromebookboots up within eight seconds, connects effortlessly to the web via Wi-Fi or 3G, and stores all its data in the cloud, according to IHS. But the Chromebook’s focus on providing a compelling user experience has resulted in the inclusion of some advanced hardware features not typically found in low-cost notebooks, according to the firm.
HIS表示Chromebook启动时间不足8秒,通过WiFi或3G与网络无缝相连,并将所有数据存储在云端。由于Chromebook专注于提供一种新颖的用户体验,它拥有一些一般低成本笔记本电脑所有没有的先进功能。
?
According to the teardown analysis, Samsung chose to trim spending on certain items while increasing its outlay on other items, such as the display, battery pack and enclosure, Key to this effort was Samsung’s vertical integration, which allows it to source components like the memory, battery and display in-house, enabling Samsugn to reduce costs in some areas and also to differentiate the product from devices from competing manufacturers, according to IHS.
拆解分析显示,三星选择在减少一部分部件投入的同时增加另一部分部件的投入——例如显示屏、电池和外壳。三星的垂直整合是支撑这种策略的关键因素,它可以自己提供内存、电池和显示屏,从而降低这些部件的成本与其它厂商的设备形成差异化。
?
The motherboard is the most expensive subsystem of the Chromebook, at $86.37, or 26 percent of the device’s total BOM, IHS said. The major cost driver for the motherboard is the main memory supplied by Samsung, consisting of a 2 GB Double Data Rate 3 (DDR) SDRAM, the firm said.
Chromebook最昂贵的子系统是主板,成本86.37美元,占整个物料成本的26%。对主板成本影响最大的部件是三星自己生产的主内存——2GB DDR3 SDRAM。
?
The motherboard also features a dual-core Atom N570 processor from Intel and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for computing security from Infineon—a component seen more often in enterprise-level computers, but not so much on value computing devices, IHS said.
主板上还有一颗英特尔双核Atom N570处理器和英飞凌TPM安全模块——该模块常见于各种企业级的电脑,但很少出现在廉价计算设备上。
?
The Chromebook features a high-quality 12.1-inch LCD with improved LED backlight technology that achieves 300nit brightness, IHS said. The display is made. in-house by Samsung, has a pixel format of 1280 by 800 pixels and a 16 by 10 aspect ratio and costs $58, about 17.5 percent of the Chromebook’s total BOM, IHS said.
HIS表示三星Chromebook采用了一块高质量的12.1英寸LCD屏幕,改进后的LED背光技术可以提供300流明的亮度。该显示屏也由三星自己生产,屏幕分辨率1280x800,成本58美元,占总物料成本的17.5%。
?
As part of enhancing the user experiencing, Samsung also chose to invest on an all-day, 6-prismatic cell battery pack—a component that takes up nearly two-thirds of the total volume of the Chromebook, IHS said. The 7.4-volt lithium ion polymer battery is sourced from Samsung SDI and carries a cost of $48.20, or 14.5 percent of the overall BOM, IHS said.
为了提升用户体验,三星选择了能够支撑全天使用的6芯电池。该电池占据着Chromebook机身内近2/3的空间。7.4V锂离子聚合物由三星SDI提供,成本48.2美元,占总物料成本的14.5%。
?
The fourth most expensive subsystem in the Chromebook is the global 3G wireless wide area network module from Hon Hai Precision Technology of Taiwan, consisting of a quad-band EDGE/GPRS/GSM, a quad-band HSPA/UTMS and a dual-band CDMA, IHS said. To keep its costs down, Samsung elected to use an older Gobi 2000 baseband platform from Qualcomm, the IHS iSuppli Teardown reveals. All told, the 3G WWAN module comes to a cost of $42.85, or 12.9 percent of the total BOM, according to IHS.
三星Chromebook第四昂贵的子系统是台湾鸿海提供的3G全球广域网(WWAN)模块,支持四频段EDGE/GPRS/GSM、四频段HSPA/UTMS和双频段CDMA。HIS还发现,三星为降低成本采用了高通的老式Gobi 2000基带平台。3G全球广域网模块总成本42.85美元,占整个物料成本的12.9%。

话题PK
三星手机在中国是否会雪崩式倒下?

MOTO、NOKIA、索尼等手机巨头都是雪崩式倒下,三星手机最近也遭遇到市场近几年来首次的下滑。这是三星手机暂时性的困难,还是三星手机正在重走其它手机国际巨头的老路,积重难返,从此被国产手机所取代?欢迎大家表达自己的看法,谢谢。

正方:?三星手机在中国肯定会倒下。

反方:?三星手机还有能力东山再起。
