HuCard Proto V1

The HuCard (Japanese: ヒューカード, Hepburn: HyūKādo) is a ROM cartridge in the form of a card, designed by Hudson Soft for NEC's PC-Engine and PC Engine SuperGrafx video game consoles, which premiered in 1987 and 1989, respectively. In the United States, where the PC-Engine was marketed as the TurboGrafx-16, the HuCard is alternately called the TurboChip.

Domkid has always wanted to make his own and based on research on the Net was able to design its 1st model based on an eprom. So he redid the PCB with a software called SprintLayout, here's the result:

Version 1 of the Hucard is based on AT29C040A - Dip 32 - 4Mbit - 5v

Wondering if you could post some tips on programming the AT29 eeprom? Can you suggest a programmer/software? Is there any specific preparation of a .pce ROM required? Thank you!

Good Job! Looks nice!
