These are MM78's and not the L version. they run on 15V (or -15V depending on your perspective). I connect ground to pins 4 and 6, then 15V to pin 7, and finally 12V (via a pot between ground/15V) to pin 8.

5 connects thru a 56K resistor to ground, clock goes into pin 3 at 15V swing levels, and there's another output at 15V levels driving reset. The 8 RIO lines are pulled to ground thru 22K resistors and that's where the data should appear.

1 byte per clock, starting at address 3C0h (reset vector) 4-5 bytes after reset.

dumping news:

I got 7 more games today, with a total of 9 CPUs inside. two games have dual CPUs (sound + game CPU). I have dumped 7 of these CPUs... one COP411, HD38820, HD38800 (two), D552C (two) and D553C.

Got a D1771-11 and D7528 which will be 'fun' to dump/RE. I am not sure if I can get them to dump but I will give it a try some time soon.

The D1771 is a bone of contention up to this point since not a single document about it to speak of has ever been found, just a patent and a few other scraps. The D7528 has no test pin so I will have to try and coax it into test mode by trying a few things like pulling pins above 5V thru a resistor and seeing if it has a protection diode or not. (no diode = likely test pin sometimes).

The ROM dump production line is really moving in full swing now. I have 18 games now using the HD388xx parts which we still need opcode bit docs for.
