 This document is in a very preliminary state and is subject to change.
 Most everything within has been tested and verified on a Pre-System 16 board,
 but please be aware that my testing methods or interpretations of
 results could be flawed. I can't guarantee that everything is 100% accurate.

 Last updated: 03/29/2004.


 The Pre-System 16 hardware is the unofficial name given to one of Sega's
 16-bit platforms that was introduced between the Hang-On and System 16A

 From a programming point of view it is very similar to System 16, with
 less RAM and different sprite / sound hardware.

 Main CPU       68000
 Sound CPU      Z80
 Sample CPU     N7751
 Sound hardware YM2151, YM3012
                Signed 8-bit DAC

 Memory         68K work RAM    16K
                Z80 work RAM    2K
                Tile RAM        32K
                Text RAM        4K
                Color RAM       4K
                Sprite RAM      2K
                Line buffers    512x12-bit (x2)

 Game list:

 Name               Year    CPU     MCU         Program         Notes

 Alien Syndrome     1987    68000   ?           ?               None
 Body Slam          1987    68000   317-0015    10063-10068     None
 Dump Matsumoto     1987    68000   ?           ?               None
 Major League       1985    68000   ?           ?               Watchdog enabled
 Quartet            1987    68000   317-00??    07455-07459     None
 Quartet 2          1987    68000   317-0010    07692-07697     None

 There may be another version of Alien Syndrome on this hardware.

 Body Slam is the export version of Dump Matsumoto.

 Quartet is a 4-player game, Quartet 2 is a 2-player variation of the
 original one.


 68000      10.000 MHz      Part is MC68000P10 (rated for 10 MHz)
 Z80         4.000 MHz      Part is uPD780C-1 (Z80-A clone, rated for 4 MHz)
 N7751       6.000 MHz      Part is uPD7751 (8048 clone)
 8751        8.000 MHz      Has a clock divider (runs at 4.000 MHz)
 YM2151      4.000 MHz

 There are two clock signals used by the video hardware:

 12.587400 MHz  Sprite line buffer render clock
  6.293700 MHz  Sprite line buffer scan/erase and pixel clock

 This gives about 800.75 ticks of the 12 MHz clock per scanline for sprite
 processing, similar to the System 16 hardware.

 68000 memory map

 The address decoding PAL @ 8J uses 68000 A23, A22, A18, A17 directly and
 buffered A16 which is controlled by the current bus master (68000 or MCU).
 Because of the partial decoding, the address space is divided into four
 regions of eight 64K banks:

 00 : Program ROM pairs ROM0-E, ROM0-O
 01 : Program ROM pairs ROM1-E, ROM1-O
 02 : Program ROM pairs ROM2-E, ROM2-O
 03 : Lock up when accessed
 04 : Lock up when accessed
 05 : Lock up when accessed
 06 : Lock up when accessed
 07 : Lock up when accessed

 Repeat for banks 08 through 3F.

 If 27512's are used instead, there is most likely a jumper on the board
 or a different PAL is needed to increase the size of each ROM area to 128K.

 40 : Tile RAM (32K)
 41 : Text RAM (4K)
 42 : Unused (returns $FFFF when read)
 43 : Unused (returns $FFFF when read)
 44 : Sprite RAM (2K)
 45 : Sprite RAM (2K)
 46 : Sprite RAM (2K)
 47 : Sprite RAM (2K)

 Repeat for banks 48 through 7F.

 Some games test $430000 to see if it returns zero in the memory test, if so
 the chips are printed with their IC numbers rather than their relative
 position on the main board.

 80 : Lock up when accessed
 81 : Lock up when accessed
 82 : Lock up when accessed
 83 : Lock up when accessed
 84 : Color RAM (4K)
 85 : Color RAM (4K)
 86 : Color RAM (4K)
 87 : Color RAM (4K)

 Repeat for banks 88 through BF.

 C0 : Tile RAM  (32K)
 C1 : Text RAM  (4K)
 C2 : Unused (returns $FFFF when read)
 C3 : Unused (returns $FFFF when read)
 C4 : I/O area
 C5 : I/O area
 C6 : $FFFF
 C7 : Work RAM  (16K)

 Repeat for banks C8 through FF.

 Major League accesses a watchdog at $C60000. The hardware does seem to have
 a jumper to enable the watchdog which is composed of a counter connected
 to the reset generator. This seems to be disabled (jumper shorted) in all
 other games.

 The officially used address ranges are:

 400000-407FFF : Tile RAM
 410000-410FFF : Text RAM
 440000-4407FF : Sprite RAM
 840000-840FFF : Color RAM
 C40000-C42FFF : I/O region

 I/O hardware

 The Pre-System 16 I/O hardware consists of two read-only DIP switches,
 four read-only I/O ports, and a 8255 PPI which manages Z80 communication
 and control of several output signals.

 Memory map for banks C4, C5:

 0000-0FFF : 8255 PPI registers
 1000-1FFF : Input ports 0,1,2,3
 2000-2FFF : DIP switches 0,1
 3000-3FFF : Unused (returns $FFFF when read)

 The PPI register, input ports, and DIP switches are mapped to odd bytes
 within their respective ranges. All bits of the input ports and DIP
 switches are active-low.

 Reading the control register returns $FF/$F7 randomly. Some versions of
 the 8255 have a readable control register, others have it mirror port C,
 and some always return $FF (or are supposed to). I think the NEC uPD82C55
 part used in the Pre-System 16 hardware falls in the latter category.

 The officially used addresses are:

 $C40001 : PPI port A
 $C40003 : PPI port B
 $C40005 : PPI port C
 $C40007 : PPI control
 $C41001 : Input port #0
 $C41003 : Input port #1
 $C41005 : Input port #2
 $C41007 : Input port #3
 $C42001 : DIP switch #2
 $C42003 : DIP switch #1

 PPI port A

 Port A is a bidirectional communication port in PPI mode 2 used to send
 sound commands to the Z80. In all implementations I've seen, the port is
 used in a write-only way.

 PPI port B

 D7 : Screen flip (1= flip, 0= normal orientation)
 D6 : To 8751 pin 13 (/INT1)
 D5 : To 315-5149 pin 17.
 D4 : Screen enable (1= display, 0= blank)
 D3 : Lamp #2 (1= on, 0= off)
 D2 : Lamp #1 (1= on, 0= off)
 D1 : Coin meter #2
 D0 : Coin meter #1

 When the screen is flipped, sprite are not flipped vertically. To do this,
 the bank offset has to be set to the start of the last line in the sprite,
 and the pitch should be set to a negative value. This bit is latched at
 the start of each scanline.

 Bit 6 is used to trigger an interrupt on the MCU. It could probably be
 used as a generic input as well.

 Bit 5 doesn't seem to affect the text or sprite layers when set, the PAL
 it is connected to is in the sprite / timing section. Normally set to 0.

 Bit 4 is latched by the hardware at each pixel. When the screen is blanked,
 the color data being output to the video DAC is all zero (black).

 The coin meters are incremented by the positive-going edge of the outputs
 from bits 1,0.

 PPI port C

 D7 : Port A handshaking signal /OBF
 D6 : Port A handshaking signal ACK
 D5 : Port A handshaking signal IBF
 D4 : Port A handshaking signal /STB
 D3 : Port A handshaking signal INTR
 D2 : To PAL 315-5107 pin 9 (SCONT1)
 D1 : To PAL 315-5108 pin 19 (SCONT0)
 D0 : To MUTE input on MB3733 amplifier.
      0= Sound is disabled
      1= sound is enabled

 Bits 7-3 are used by the PPI chip to manage handshaking for port A.
 This register is initialized to $07 in all games I have examined.


 The sprite hardware is similar to both Hang-On and System 16, with some
 minor differences.

 Sprite RAM is 2K in size and holds a list of 128 16-byte entries. Each
 entry defines a single sprite.

 Sprite entries are parsed from the start of the list to the end, with
 subsequent sprites overwriting the previously drawn ones. This processing
 occurs on each scanline,

 Sprites are drawn into a line buffer with 512 12-bit entries. There are
 two line buffers for double-buffering; on each line sprite data is rendered
 into one buffer at 12 MHz, while the other is scanned out to the display
 and simultaneously erased at 6 MHz.

 Sprite entry format:

 00: bbbbbbbbtttttttt   b= Bottom line, t= Top line
 02: -------xxxxxxxxx   x= Horizontal position
 04: pppppppppppppppp   p= Pitch
 06: haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa   h= Horizontal flip enable, a= Bank offset
 08: --cccccc-bbb--pp   c= Palette, b= Bank select, p= Priority
 0A: rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr   r= Current offset   
 0C: ----------------   
 0E: ----------------

 The top and bottom lines define which scanlines the sprite is shown on.
 The visible range of sprites is 0 to 223.

 If the bottom line is equal to or bigger than 0xF0, the current sprite
 being processed and all subsequent sprites are not displayed.

 If the bottom line is equal to or bigger than the top line, the sprite
 is not displayed at all.

 The horizontal position ranges from 0x00BD (pixel 0 of display area) to
 0x01FC (pixel 319 of display area)

 The pitch seems to be a 16-bit value. This is unique to the Pre-System 16
 hardware, in (all?) other Sega games it's a signed 8-bit value.

 The bank offset word is an index into the currently selected 64K bank of
 sprite data. The bank offset word is copied to the current offset word when
 drawing the first line of the sprite, and then the current offset word is
 used as the start address for all subsequent lines the sprite is shown on.

 The priority bits define the sprite priority when being mixed in with the
 two background layers and text layer:

 D1 D0
  0  0 : Sprite is behind BG, FG, TXT
  0  1 : Sprite is over BG, behind FG, TXT
  1  0 : Sprite is over BG, FG, behind TXT
  1  1 : Sprite is over BG, FG, TXT

 This example assumes the other layers have the priority bits cleared.

 Sprite banking

 The ROM board uses bits 1,0 to select one of the four ROM pairs. Bit 2
 is either unused (27256) or connected to ROM A15 (27512). Here is a list
 of all possible values

 D2 D1 D0   Selected ROM / offset

  0  0  0   OBJ0 $0000-$7FFF
  0  0  1   OBJ1 $0000-$7FFF
  0  1  0   OBJ2 $0000-$7FFF
  0  1  1   OBJ3 $0000-$7FFF
  1  0  0   OBJ0 $8000-$FFFF
  1  0  1   OBJ1 $8000-$FFFF
  1  1  0   OBJ2 $8000-$FFFF
  1  1  1   OBJ3 $8000-$FFFF

 Words 6, 7 are unused.

 /VENW from pin 18 of 315-5012 is the clock signal used by two hex latches
 to load the palette / bank / priority word. Bits 15,14,7,3,2 are not used
 by the hardware.

 However, setting bits 15 through 12 of word 5 seemed to hide all sprites on
 the same line the current sprite was being shown on. I can't get this to
 work reliably, it may have been a bug in my test program.

 Notice there is no support for sprite zooming. The closely related Hang-On
 hardware has a ROM to look up zoom values which is not present in the
 Pre-System 16 hardware.

 ROM board

 The standard ROM board has the following layout:

 [1]   [2]   [3]   [4]   [5]   [6]   [7]   [8]   [9]   [10]  [11]

 Each ROM is a 27256. The board supports 27512's for everything but the
 sample ROMs through jumpers, however there are no games that use them.
 Also, it isn't clear how the system would know how to change the program
 ROM layout if 27512's were used (there may be a jumper on the board for

 The four jumpers for determining ROM size are:

 JP1 - 68K program ROM size (27256 or 27512)
 JP2 - Object ROM size      (27256 or 27512)
 JP3 - Z80 ROM size         (27256 or 27512)
 JP4 - Tile ROM size        (27256 or 27512)

 The jumpers connect pin 1 of the ROM socket which is VPP (27256) or A15
 (27512) to a high-order address line from the 68000 / sprite generator
 / Z80 / tilemap generator, or ground.

 Sound hardware

 A Z80 is used to manage a YM2151 and send requests to the N7751, which
 drives a 8-bit signed DAC for sample playback.

 Memory map

 0000-7FFF : Program ROM
 8000-F7FF : ?
 F800-FFFF : Work RAM

 I/O port map

 00-3F     : YM2151 register data (even addresses)
             YM2151 register select (odd addresses)
 40-7F     : ?
 80-BF     : N7751 control latch (write-only).
 C0-FF     : PPI port A for bidirectional communication with the 68000.
             Used to read sound commands, accessing ports C0-FF strobes
             the /ACK pin on the PPI.

 N7751 control latch format:

 D7 : N7751 sample number request (S2)
 D6 : N7751 sample number request (S1)
 D5 : N7751 sample number request (S0)
 D4 : Sample ROM #0 enable (/SAM0_CS)
 D3 : Sample ROM #1 enable (/SAM1_CS)
 D2 : Sample ROM #2 enable (/SAM2_CS)
 D1 : Sample ROM #3 enable (/SAM3_CS)
 D0 : Currently enabled sample RAM A14

 Writing to this register selects a sample ROM and 16K offset into the ROM.
 If more than one ROM is enabled, there is bus contention and garbage data
 is returned. If no ROMs are enabled, then nothing is driving the bus and
 I think the last valid data left on the N7751 'BUS' input is returned.

 P1.4 = DAC bit 4
 P1.3 = DAC bit 3
 P1.2 = DAC bit 2
 P1.1 = DAC bit 1
 P1.0 = DAC bit 0

 The Z80 code in most games manages sample playback like so:

 - Pulse bit 6 of YM2151 register $1B (CT2 - /RST) to reset the N7751.

 - When sound command corresponding to a sample is received, store in
   buffer with eight entries. If no free entries, drop sample.
 - Go through buffer and trigger samples sounds from start to end if there
   are any present:

 - Output sample # (0-7), ROM offset, and ROM select to port $80.

 - Pulse bit 7 of YM2151 register $1B (CT1 - /INT) to trigger an interrupt
   on the N7751.

 I have confirmed the following connections:

 YM2151 pin 8 (CT1) to N7751 pin 6 (/INT, labeled 'START')
 YM2151 pin 9 (CT2) to N7751 pin 4 (/RST, labeled 'RESET')

 Body Slam expects bit 7 of YM2151 register $1B to control /INT, and bit 6
 to control /RST. This would seem to be reversed from some documentation
 I've seen about the YM2151. Any ideas?

 8751 MCU

 The Pre-System 16 hardware uses a 8751 MCU for protection, which is tied
 in to several parts of the system and is required for the board to operate.

 Some later Sega games have a plug-in board with some TTL parts to mimic
 what the MCU does, to allow unprotected games to run. There may be
 something like this for the Pre-System 16 hardware, but I think all games
 released for it are in fact protected.

 After power-up, the 68000 is able to run for a few thousand cycles or so
 before the MCU kicks in. This may depend more on the MCU program code than
 any delays in the hardware.

 The 315-0015 MCU on my Body Slam board does the following:

 - Halt 68000 (which has been running for a bit beforehand)
 - Set up palette
 - Show warm-up counter in middle of the text layer.
   I think it's checksumming the ROMs during this time.
 - Let 68000 continue to run

 During gameplay it updates a timer in work RAM at $FFC200, which the game
 logic uses to time rounds. There are some other visual differences between
 Body Slam in an emulator and running on the real hardware, so it may
 control other aspects of the system.

 Here is a more technical description of the MCU interface:

 /EA/VPP = Pull-up resistor to +5V.
 P1.0    = 68000 /IPL0
 P1.1    = 68000 /IPL1
 P1.2    = 68000 /IPL2
 P1.3    = To pin 7 of PAL @ 8J (memory bank select bit)
 P1.4    = To pin 8 of PAL @ 8J (memory bank select bit)
 P1.5    = To pin 9 of PAL @ 8J (memory bank select bit)
 P1.6    = To pin 11 of PAL @ 8J (memory bank select bit)
 P1.7    = N.C.
 P3.0    = 68000 /HALT
 P3.1    = 68000 /BERR
 P3.2    = Interrupt input from 74LS192 @ 2H. (/INT0)
 P3.3    = Interrupt input from PPI PC6. (/INT1)
 P3.4    = To TTL logic to control some kind of counter. (T0)
 P3.5    = Gated with ALE to enable latching LSB of MCU address bus. (T1)
 P3.6    = External memory read strobe.
 P3.7    = External memory write strobe.
 P0,P2   = Multiplexed data and address bus.

 Quartet pulses bit 6 of PPI port C, which is done to trigger interrupts
 to the MCU. Most games leave bit 6 set (no interrupt).

 I think the TTL parts feeding /INT0 are from the timing section which
 generates the V-Blank interrupt signal, as the MCU controls 68000 interrupts
 directly (using level 4 autovector for V-Blank) and has no other inputs.

 The lower 17 bits of the 68000 address bus are buffered and can be controlled
 by the MCU. The remaining ones are fed to an address decoding PAL which
 also has a direct connection from the MCU. (Note that the PAL also receives
 buffered A16, which the MCU or 68000 can control)

 The MCU uses it's 64K external memory space in an unusual way; bits 15-1
 correspond to 68000 address bits 15-1, address bit 0 is 68000 address bit
 16. There is some additional logic to simulate a 16-bit address bus on
 the MCU side with two pairs of latches for reads/writes.

 The SAM ROM /OE pin is tied to ground, they always output data when
 their /CS signal (from the latch at Z80 port $80) is enabled.

 Assistance Needed

 What are the 8751 part numbers in some games, and in other revisions of the
 same game?

 What the are the custom 68000 part numbers, CPU type (FD1094, etc.), and
 program ROM numbers used by some games?

 Is there a variation of the Pre-System 16 hardware that has the IC numbers
 silkscreened on the board?

 Could anyone dump and verify the uPD7751 internal ROM (1K) for any
 Pre-System 16 and System 16A games?

 Does the System 16A hardware have a zoom ROM, if so could anyone dump it
 or the one from Hang-On / Enduro Racer / Space Harrier?

 Any details on the special Major League control and how it interfaces with
 the rest of the system?

 The Monster Bash N7751 has T0 tied to ground but uses the 'ENT0 CLK'
 instruction which seems (from the documentation I've seen) to output a clock
 signal on the T0 pin. What is the purpose of doing this?
