This reprogrammable SMS cartridge circuit, perfect for easily making physical versions of your homebrew games! Can be installed in standard SMS cartridge shells.

  • Re-writeable 4Megabit (512 kB) flash chip
  • Compatible with PAL and NTSC systems
  • Compatible with the power base converter (or equivalents)
  • Sega-style mapper (slots 0, 1 and 2)[1]

This design has no battery-backed RAM on-board, but with the right programming techniques, scores and progress can be saved directly on flash. The pre-programmed game, DONKEY.SMS, does that!

If you do not have an empty cartridge shell to fit this PCB, see also our reprogrammable cartridge.
