The Namcot 129 and 163 seem to be identical. The Namcot 175 and 340 have minor but vital differences.

05 also connects to CIRAM A10
19,32,43 Some boards connect a battery (through a standard diode switch) to this pin to make the waveform memory nonvolatile
22 This pin is a mysterious open-collector output, reflecting the inverse of bit 7 in register $E000.
30 Pull-down resistor present on boards with battery for low-power mode
33 Ground this pin with if CHR's nOE and nCS lines are separate
34 No known function.  This pin behaves as a digital input.  Namco PCBs tie this pin to GND.
40 6264 /CE connected to this pin
44 Might be an enable for CHR RAM.  It is a push-pull output reflecting bit 7 in register $F000.

(r) - this pin connects to the ROM chips
(f) - this pin connects to the Famicom connector
(w) - this pin connects to the WRAM

Internal Vcc Connections:
19 ------- 43
32 --|>|-- 19/43 (0.7V diode drop)
Powering only 19/43 does not allow any digital operation.
