OneStation NOAC

The "OneStation" is a Made-in-China handheld that contains a NOAC (Nintendo On A Chip, or NES On A Chip) that you can buy mailorder (www.DealExtreme.com) for like $30.

It's styled after the GameBoy Micro, and actually has NOAC and what would normally be considered the "motherboard" of the chip on the cartridge instead of in the main unit. The main unit is simply an audio circuit, a b/w composite video out circuit, the game pad buttons, and the LCD connector for the main OLED display.


Since all of the "brains" of this thing are essentially inside the cart, it makes the cart an incredibly compact NES-on-a-chip.
