This board was used with a wide range of consoles from the SCPH-5000’s, and SCPH-5500’s, to even some SCPH-7000’s and SCPH-7500’s.
I sell Mayumi v4 modchips in my store.
PU-18 Mayumi v4 modchip installation diagram
Above is the diagram for the PU-18.
All of the points are fairly easy to solder to, with the only tricky point being pin one. Just don’t apply too much pressure or you might knock the capacitor off of the board.
Here are some tips I have for you when you are soldering your chip into the PU-18.
- Cut your wires to be as short and direct as possible.
- The high speed clock line (pin 2) needs to be especially short and carefully routed.
- Placing the chip in between the circles for pins 3, 5, and 6 seems to be the ideal location.
- Flatten the legs of the chip so it can more easily fit underneath the board.
