Description

MSX-FAX is an unreleased fax module that was planned by ASCII to be used with Japanese MSX-Write. It would have added a FAX option to the MSX-Write menu.

The final product would have been the form of a cartridge, including

  • a 64kB ROM with the fax program
  • 64kb RAM whose 32kB would have been battery backed and used to store data such as phone book, invoices, company logo and header, etc.

Only a prototype board was presented in the November 1987 edition of MSX Magazine (official ASCII Japanese magazine).
