Up to 8 * 32Mbit ROMs (27C322) can be used for a maximum of 256Mbit. 27C800/27C160 can also be used depending on jumper configuration.

The size of largest ROM is selected using a pair of jumpers. The rest should be left unconnected.

A NEO-273 and a LS74 are used to address C ROM. The LS74 provides the 2 most significant bits. The LS139 enables one of four pairs of C ROMs using 2 address inputs depending on which 2 jumpers are connected.
