Description

This version of the Sanyo PHC-30N computer was aimed at the Central Europe market.

This machine looks like the integration of the MPC-5 and a data recorder. However, it has more RAM than both the MPC-5 and the PHC-30. Also a printer port is available and the data recorder has now a counter reset.

It was probably sold with a demo tape.

Specifications

The PHC-30N is a MSX1 with a Z80A from Sharp (LH0080A) and probably an MSX-Engine S3527 from Yamaha. A volume control of the internal speaker is located on the back.

Compared to the PHC-30, the expansion bus has been removed to add more RAM.
