Sega System 16 Security Reverse Engineering


Dear all,

I'm glad to announce the successful reverse engineering of Sega's System 16 cpu security modules. This development will enable collectors worldwide preserving hardware unmodified, and stop the general discarding of Hitachi FD modules.

The project is right now involving external testers so expect further details and full disclosure over the coming weeks.

Eduardo.

  3. Thanks, Eduardo!

    Do you still plan to do the same with the encrypted Z80 modules the NEC 8123B's ?? Is there some sort of secret doorknock or pin reporpuposing going on here? Would love to be able to bring back my original modules back to life. :)
