The Dell Latitude CPi A366XT

The Dell Latitude CPi A366XT is an older laptop with 440BX chipset. We're currently evaluating if it's possible to write coreboot support for it.

Hardware

Overview:

  • Northbridge: Intel 82443BX (440BX)
  • Southbridge: Intel 82371EB (PIIX4E)
  • Super I/O: SMSC FDC37N958FR
    • The Super I/O also "contains" the embedded controller (EC), which is an 8051 derivate.
  • Audio/video controller: Neomagic NM2200 MagicGraph/MagicMedia 256AV
  • PCMCIA controller: Texas Instruments PCI1225
  • ROM/BIOS chip: AMD AM29F040B (PLCC, 512 KB, parallel protocol, socketed)
    • Unfortunately you can not hot-swap a chip in this laptop, it'll immediately do a hard poweroff if you try it (the EC firmware, which is part of the flash chip, likely doesn't like you removing the chip).
