Deconstructing Sega’s System 16 Security #Gaming #Sega #ReverseEngineering
Arcade Hacker tackles looking into the ultra-protected FD1089 module found in the Sega System 16 consoles.
The FD1089 module variants from Hitachi / SEGA were fabricated in a plastic case, on the back of the module a epoxy layer is visible together with two rows of pins arranged as DIP64. This arrangement mimics a standard 68000 CPU as intended by SEGA.
See how things are teased out of the module in the videos (here and here) and on the blog.
