Cartridge Board

What Is It?

Note: this board has bus conflicts.

The Tech:

The LS161 acts as a latch. It latches D0, D1, D2, and D3. Writing anywhere in the 8000h- FFFFh range will set this latch using the above data lines.

The PRG space is broken up into two 16K banks. The upper bank is hardwired to the last PRG ROM page. The first 16K bank is selectable.
