Another picture with a more detailed view of the same Pachinko PCB:


This web content is from 2015, but the other link on the previous post is from 2006....

Doing a simple search I have found some pictures of the PCB of an unknown video device. It has Cinch composite video entries(yellow connectors), power connector at the left, and probably a LCD output on the upper side(large orange connector). It has also a long unused 50 pin header, but let's not see MSX slots every time we found such pattern....

The pictures have very low quality, but the V9990 chip is clearly seen.

I still hope that an FPGA implementation will become reality! There is still a demand for this card Tongue

and if the FPGA has enough space ... also OPL4.
Think about a cartridge with GFX9000+OPL4

The Zemmix is full I think to read from Kdl.
That should be possible only on larger ones like Mist or similar, and I think Kdl develops the cores for the OCM/Zemmix that are the dedicated MSX ones.

v9990 should require at least 12k LE (9958 uses 40% ocm)
the opl4, should require a lot more, at least 25k LE, (18k is the unoptimized opl3 core).
so a fpga with those 2 chips should at least have 30-40k LE.

I am not surprised a V9990 is used in some kind of Audio device.
Sony used the V9938 and V9958 in several audio devices.
One for example is the STR-G1ES, which is a FM-STEREO / FM-AM RECEIVER.

I think this is a PCB from another scrapped Japanese gambling machine, that's the most logical relationship to me.

Another V9990 PCB. This time the maker is named: Keyence 483-A-C01-01, and it comes from an auction at Korea

Very good resolution pictures. Can you download them before the auction ends and the opportunity is lost?

A lot of components are Japanese, and a sort of CGA video port is seen. Again, I think it is part of a Japanese gambling machine, I don't see the supposed maker on the PCB.

I don't know what Keyence was producing on the 90s. They have a wide range of products, but none of their divisions seem to match with showing pixel graphics on a screen.
