4MiB V ROM

The V(oice ?) ROMs contain the ADPCM audio samples in cartridges.

In early games, the ADPCM-A and ADPCM-B data was stored in separate V ROMs. Later, the PCM demultiplexer chip was made to allow both types of data to be mixed in the same ROM(s).

The TC5332204 mask ROMs have a similar pinout to the 27C322 EPROMs. The only difference is that they're set to byte mode only: half of the data output pins are unused. Pin 30 (Q15) is used as the address lowest bit.

Speed

  • V A ROMs minimum speed: any will do (>2µs).
  • V B ROMs minimum speed: 250ns (see YM2610 bus timing).
