For fun, since I have my "6502" SBC (Single Board Computer) I decided to check if you could buy an SBC featuring a Motorola 68000 CPU or a Zilog Z80.

I found a Z80:

So I've learned that the fake NES mini has what should be a chip called a NOAC (or Nintendo on a Chip). The SH6578 and NT6578 are examples of this chip. You can find a data sheet by googling NOAC 6578, a chip that is shamelessly an entire NES packed in to a single chip. Hehe.

I have one of these now, an SD2IEC adapter.

There are cooler ones that look like tiny 1541 drives, but I opted for the cheaper one. Should be compatible with the C64, VIC-20 and the C128.
