SNES PCB List

This is a list of known PCB types that have been used for SNES cartridges. This includes standard PCBs used for commercial releases and prototypes, add-on cartridges, and third party PCBs. The PCB board can be used to indicate the memory mapping to get a game working on an emulator, so this list has proven to be quite a bit move valuable than I originally though when I started collectiong PCB scans back in the early 2000s. The serial code of standard PCBs gives information about how the PCB is set up. The meaning of the serial codes was originally summarized by Fitzroy on the website of the now defunct Zapatabase (Archived link), and that information is included on all of the pages below. I have also included the memory mapping used in byuu's bsnes and higan emulators. If a game does not work, and I have linked the mapping for the ROM image to a specific board type, you can copy this into a file called "manifest.bml" in the game folder of the game, and it should work properly.

The order I have put the PCBs in the list below is in order of compatibility. That is, the second component of the second part of the serial code. Roughly, the order should correspond to: special chip, mapping, SRAM, decoder chip, number of chips, revision, manufacturer.
