Cd1 neo-mga.jpg
Package QFP160
Manufacturer Logo fujitsu.jpg
First use 1994 ?
Used on CDROM-2 board, MV1A...

Multi-purpose chip found in CD systems and some late MVS boards:

  • NEO-MGA in the CD1 model (front loading).
  • NEO-MGA-T in the CD2 model (top loading) and MV1A MVS boards, can be swapped with NEO-MGA.
  • NEO-MGA2-SA in the CDZ, replaces the LC8953 ?

It is used for address decoding, communication with the CD drive, for refreshing 68k DRAM, and for buffering serial CDDA data.
