About

WStech doc v2.1 made by Judge and Dox
Special thanks to -anonymous- contributor for some usefull info.

Released 26.03.2002 on Dox Homepage.

Comments/updates/infos please send to dox@space.pl (or well, to me)

What's new in version 2.1

  • Correct info about CPU
  • Additional sound info
  • Correct info about timers (change VBL End interrupt to VBL Timer)
  • Better description about Serial Communication
  • Full info about EEPROMs

CPU

Bandai SPGY-1001 ASWAN 9850KK003
NEC V30 MZ - fast version of V30 with internal pipeline (16 bytes prefatch buffer) running at 3.072 MHz. V30 MZ is aprox 4 times faster than V30. The V30MZ performs pipeline processing internally, performing instruction fetch (prefetch), instruction decode, and instruction execution in parallel. For this reason, it is difficult to determine what part of the program is currently being executed by monitoring the output of the address bus for the instruction code fetch. If there are conditional branch instructions, even in case branching does not occur, the address of the branch destination is prefetched (only one time), so that further monitoring of the program is difficult. The V30MZ has 8 prefetch queues (16 bytes)

There are a few other differences between V30MZ and V30 cpu (unsupported opcodes , different flag handling after mul/div).

Memory

20 bit addressing space = 1 Megabyte. Memory is splitted into 64KB blocks (segments/banks).

Segments

$0 RAM 16 KB (WS) / 64 KB (WSC) internal RAM (see below)
$1 SRAM (cart) SRAM is BSI device BS62LV256TC - 256K(32Kx8) Static RAM - TSOP 0 - 70 c, 70 ns (http://www.bsi.com.tw/product/bs62lv256.pdf) FIXME
$2 ROM Bank initial bank = last
$3 ROM Bank initial bank = last
$4 ROM Bank initial bank = last - 11
$5 ROM Bank initial bank = last - 10
$6 ROM Bank initial bank = last - 9
$7 ROM Bank initial bank = last - 8
$8 ROM Bank initial bank = last - 7
$9 ROM Bank initial bank = last - 6
$A ROM Bank initial bank = last - 5
$B ROM Bank initial bank = last - 4
$C ROM Bank initial bank = last - 3
$D ROM Bank initial bank = last - 2
$E ROM Bank initial bank = last - 1
$F ROM Bank initial bank = last

Segments $2 and $3 are switchable using ports:

$C2 Segment 2
$C3 Segment 3

Value written to port is ROM Bank number. $FF means last ROM bank (last 64 kbytes of ROM file), $FE = last - 1 .. etc

Segements $4-$F thought Port $C0 using

Bit 76543210
Data FOO BAA
      $C0 - Segments 4-$F - 
      bits 0-3 of are bits 4-7 of ROM bank number in segments 4-$F
      Bits 0-3 are taken form segment number ( for example , IO[$C0]=$4E  -> segment 9 contains ROM bank $E9).
      FIXME - not sure if this is right ..
