The module SKW-01 is a Kanji Word Processor Unit without disk support for MSX1 and higher computers. It was made and sold by Yamaha.

It is only for a Yamaha or derivative computer (Victor, Sakhr) with 60 pins slot. It does not fit in a regular MSX cartridge slot. The cartridge also has a printer connector at the top.

This same unit was also sold by Sanyo as the KA-MAP-06 (including a Unit Connector), so it can fit a regular MSX cartridge slot

Official price: first ¥49,800 then decreased to ¥39,800
