What about this (ahem) handheld ?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/201674537387

At this price, it's almost a steal and better be quick because there's already 3 potential buyers that are watching.

The chip inside is an AMI C2567:

$50 + $30 shipping. Hmm, call me cheap, but that sounds expensive to me. You need to consider that a decap may fail, or even that this chip is a custom one(not MCU).

If that risk is ok to you, and of course if Sean wants to decap it, buy it smile

AMI used part numbers starting with S for standard or C for custom. Their 1979 catalog shows an S2567, but that's a 14-pin chip for an electronic organ.

I'm guessing it's an S2000 MCU, with C2567 representing the custom ROM. If we could get a picture of the solder side of the PCB, we could tell if that's correct.

megocollector.com has pics of 3 different PCBs. I'll ask if he could scan the solder sides, too.

Well, i've brought mine a couple of months ago for about $150 and resold it a month later as i needed $$ to a fellow collector in Texas. And shipping between Canada and United States is pretty expensive (between $50 to $80).

So at $50, it's cheap (for me anyway) for a 40-years old electronic game.

And here's a picture of the solder side of the PCB (sorry, it's the only one i took before selling it):

My bad- I thought there was a 28-pin version of the S2000, but it only came in a 40-pin package. That doesn't bode well for emulation.

The auction was ended with a "buy it now". No problem then if it doesn't bode well for emulation, it can be simulated until it's emulated one day. wink

The only Mego STPB on Ebay right now is this one:

It's at $172 US and still going. At $50 it was a bargain, but who knows...there may be one that will pop-up for dirt cheap. It's only a question of when and how much. smile

There's a bare console one for $20 right now on ebay, if anyone wants to dump it. Or we could do the future generation a favour by making them forget this ever existed? wink

*edit*
@Rik if you're reading, do you know the MCU label of LJN Computer Impulse?


Sorry, been away for a while... I'm not sure what box this game is in, but I'll put it on my list and keep an eye out for it... smile I'll be shuffling through boxes a lot in the next couple of weeks, so it'll probably turn up soon...

I got the Canon Multi8 and I Took a Lickin from a Chicken. Unfortunately, this chicken's lickin' days are over frown But it does have a COP421, so that will be easy to dump.

We still need to do some cop421 debugging to get the apple lisa's system management/keyboard mcu going properly, last I remember it would run off into the weeds pretty quick, but that was a long while ago...
