PAL N64 with DENC-NUS encoder & VDC-NUS chip: size differs?!

Post by keropi » Thu Oct 15, 2009 4:33 am

Hiya!!!

I am in the process of replacing the video encoders , but as you can see in the pics the actual chips are of different size... will it work if I replace the DENC-NUS? are the chips pin-compatible?

THANKS for any info!!!!


PS. the mobo revision is NUS- CPU (P) - 01 , will it need an RGB amplifier in the cable too?

If they have the same pinout then it's just a matter of soldering one side and then extending the pins on the other side with some small like 30 gauge uninsulated wire. But of course you knew that :)

By the way....AWESOME pics. Most people can't take a macro pic to save their life. :lol:

The pinout is not the same for the two. Pin 1 on my US board with VDC-NUS goes to either GND or VCC while on the DENC it's one of the digital RGB lines.

You're going to have an easier time just swapping the PIF chips.

The pinout is different but if you have the pinout handy it shouldn't be THAT hard to adapt. But agreed, PIF swap is a better idea.

Thanks guys! it appears this was no easy job, so I ended up spending 50eur on eBay and got my self a French system that is already RGB modded :mrgreen:

I'm glad that you like these forums, but you don't have to post in a half year old thread :lol:
I hope I'm not scaring you though, it's nice that people have interest in this site.
