Like the subject/title says, has anyone decapped any of the VB’s chips (CPU, VIP, VSU, etc.), and posted pictures of the dies online?

I’ve also been wondering what the pinouts of the chips are. The NVC CPU is literally just an NEC V810 with some added opcodes, so the pinout should be similar, and thus understood.

If anyone does this, please use a dead unit with no chance of repair. Do not destroy a working Virtual Boy.

The NVC is not just a modified V810, by the way. It also contains the timer and communications logic for the controller and link ports.
