   Seems likely to be an enable for reading I²C from $6000-$7fff (internal pullup, normally floating)

Bandai's variants of the LZ93D50 are almost as bad as MMC1.

BA-JUMP2: supports PRG RAM instead of I²C, replaces banked CHR-ROM with unbanked CHR-RAM, and increases PRG max to 512KiB:

PPU /RD -> | 17  36 | -> n/c
    n/c <- | 18  35 | -> n/c
    n/c <- | 19  34 | -> n/c
PPU A10 -> | 20  33 | -> n/c
PPU A11 -> | 21  32 | -> n/c
    GND -> | 22  31 | -> PRG A18
    GND -> | 23  30 | -> n/c
    GND -- | 24  29 | <- GND
      ? ?? | 25  28 | -> PRG RAM +CS
    GND -- | 26  27 | <> n/c
           '--------'

Datach Joint ROM System: Two separate I²C clocks, replaces banked CHR-ROM with unbanked CHR-RAM, and external barcode reader.

This IC is actually a 52-pin QFP, with a slightly different pin order from the PDIP instantiation. The pertinent changes:

  • I²C SCL is only for the internal EEPROM
  • CHR A13 is External I²C SCL
  • WRAM /CS drives a tristateable buffer that connects barcode data to CPU D3.
