  • PRG ROM bank size: 32 KB
  • PRG RAM: None
  • CHR capacity: 8 KB RAM
  • CHR bank size: Not bankswitched
  • Nametable mirroring: Single-screen, mapper-selectable

Chips and pinout

  • PRG ROM - 1 MBit (128 KB x 8) (DIP-28) :
                       ---U---
                A15 - |01   28| - +5V
                A12 - |02   27| - A14
                A7  - |03   26| - A13
                A6  - |04   25| - A8 
                A5  - |05   24| - A9
                A4  - |06   23| - A11
                A3  - |07   22| - A16
                A2  - |08   21| - A10
                A1  - |09   20| - /CE (/ROMSEL)
                A0  - |10   19| - D7
                D0  - |11   18| - D6
                D1  - |12   17| - D5
                D2  - |13   16| - D4
                GND - |14   15| - D3
                       -------

This pinout is not compatible with stantard 27C010 EPROMs, so to insert them in the board manual rewiring is needed.

  • CHR-RAM - 64 kBit (8 KB x 8) (DIP-28) : Standard 6264 pinout.
  • 74HC161 (DIP-16)
