Sony Mystery CPU revealed: The CXP83601

I recently was surfing eBay and found some Sony microcontrollers, while looking over the datasheet, I noticed the package looked very familiar, a stacked MCU, over a LCC EPROM. I have a similar device in the museum.

I had not been able to previously identify it as all it said was P836U01, once I added the ‘CX’ in front, it all made sense, and I found its datasheet (albeit in Japanese) its a 10MHz 8bit ¬†SPC700 MCU w/ LCD controls and the EPROM is a highspeed 27512 type device (CXP27C7001)
