It only holds 512Kb of Memory on this chip but some simple code works just fine. The first one I built used a 32 Pin PLCC socket but after I realized it would be better to use a ZIF socket for use during the development process. Just until I get the Proper Software Program that I will use to interface to the Scorbot controllers. ZIF is much easier for Chip Swapping than the PLCC.

There is a special Compiler that was developed so that you could use C code instead and it would compile it for you into the Gameboy compatible format. The Gameboy uses a Z80 Processor and I've already begun playing around with some interfacing I/O circuits. I hope to create another Cartridge that will have I/O interface connections for us to play around with our other I/O Logic projects.
