Hi...
I have purchased the device (MSX AX-330 al-Alamiah) thinking it's with Mega Drive built-in(WiKi info) ... but what i found it was a Nintendo hardware with "UM6561BF-1" chip built-in...!!! ;)

This is first time I know the existence of such MSX...!!!!

Funny =) NES-on-a-chip is from 1995, that makes this the newest known MSX model?
It's made by UMC (Taiwan?), some tech info here: http://dendy.migera.ru/nes/g15.html

Maybe...Maybe not...!!
There is no date tag.. Sad
but i think it's from al-Alamiah last production ...as i know they stop making MSX's early 1990's...
it got some MSX game's and Software's built-in ... but most in Arabic Lang.

Here is a NES close from China. It originates from 1990 and contains a NES-on-a-chip:

Very likely that's a date code (week 8, so february) 1995. Confirm by checking date codes on other IC's on the board. Most recent you can find (usually more expensive ones like custum IC's / RAMs etc), will be near production date of the board.

Very remarkable indeed. Even more remarkable: building a plain MSX1 in 1995 (not MSX2 or 2+) Shocked! Might say a lot about the market in which this machine was sold.

Can you post some more pix, showing MSX engine, CPU, ROMs etc (and other extra's Question ) used in this machine? Or a quick list of important IC's inside?
