01, 16: both officially no connection. sometimes shorted to pin 02, 15 respectively

Note the orientation of the text: "MMC3" when viewed upright specifies pin 1 is bottom face, leftmost.

Mappers 37 and 47 connect pins 42 and 30 to a 74161

iNES Mapper 118 connects pin 12 to CIRAM A10, and pin 10 is n/c.

iNES Mapper 119 connects pin 44 to a 7432 and to the CHR RAM's +CE pin.

Notes:

  • Those chips are fully compatible MMC3 clones that can be found in bootleg games (there might be minor differences like the PPU A12 edge on which the scanline counter is clocked).
  • The connections to edge connector for single games are the same in both pirate and original version, although some pirate multicarts use those chips in non-standard way with different connections.
  • There are reports that some lots of AX5202P contain a large number of factory seconds with the IRQ not working.
  • AX5202P #1 and AX5202P #2 are confirmed to enable WRAM at $6000-$7fff at power up but protect them from writes (during CPU write cycle to $6000-$7fff when WRAM is protected, WRAM !CE and WRAM CE are not asserted). When RAM is disabled, open bus behavior is observed.
  • NC seems to be not connected internally in both versions (multimeter diode test does not show any conducting voltage between NC and any other pins)
  • AX5202P #1 is the one you can still buy nowadays (it has AX5202P marking).
  • AX5202P #2 was found in at least one game - Doki Doki Yuuenchi bootleg (the chip does not have any markings)
