JAMMA Secret Agent Arcade PCB

This JAMMA arcade printed circuit board contains the game Secret Agent, also known as Sly Spy, developed and published by Data East in 1989.

JAMMA, which stood for the Japan Amusement Machinery Manufacturers Association until 2012, is a Japanese trade association whose namesake is associated with a widely used wiring standard for arcade games. An arcade cabinet wired to JAMMA's specification can accept a motherboard for any JAMMA-compatible game. JAMMA introduced the standard in 1985; by the 1990s, most new arcade games were built to JAMMA specifications. As the majority of arcade games were designed in Japan at this time, JAMMA became the de facto standard internationally.

Manufacturer: Data East
Date: 1989
