Try and make a VRCVII dev cart to experiment with the mapper's awesome features and sound, and use it to design custom chiptunes or an advanced homebrew! :D

Send some of them to a lab to be cloned. ;) Make PCBs to use the rest.

I'd say decap them and study the blueprints so emulation accuracy can be improved.

ah, I am jealous now, these chips are so nice and new! :P

But how this can be possible? They are not a clone chip and seems original but why they are still unused?! :shock:

NOS, only have the 4 units pictured. I looked for other VRC chips but could not find any. I was originally looking for the K051649 (MSX SCC) but the guy had these... So I got them. Asked for the K053329 (VRC VI) too but there were none.

What does "NOS" mean? ('non-opened stock' ??)

I've heard it being referred to as New-Old Stock. Oldass things that have not been used.

Whatever it means exactly. It basicly means that they're new unused original parts.
