Specifically, the device uses 8GB of Samsung KLM8G2FEJA flash memory, 512 MB of Mobile DDR2 RAM made by Hynix (H9TKNNN4K) and it is powered by a a Texas Instruments 1 GHz OMAP 4430 processor. Other TI chips inside te device inlcude a TI 603B107 fully integrated power management IC, a TI LCDS83B FlatLink 10-135 MHZ transmitter, a TI AIC3110 low-power audio codec with 1.3W stereo class-D speaker amplifier, a TI WL1270B 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi solution and a TI WS245 4-Bit Dual-Supply bus transceiver.

The Kindle Fire's 7" (diagonal) display is made by LG, iFixit added.
