The Philips Magnavox MAT960A102 is a Classic WebTV box manufactured by Philips. It was one of the two original WebTV units released at launch, albeit a slightly newer functionally identical revision. It used a 33.6k modem, and had 2 MB of RAM, ROM, and flash memory. This revision appears to be the first to sport a CPU manufacturer change from IDT to NKK.

Technical Specifications

  • CPU: NKK R4640 @ 112 MHz
  • RAM: 2 MB (NEC D481850GF-A12 128k x 32Bit x 2 Banks SGRAM)
  • Boot ROM: 2 MB (2x 1 MB proprietary WebTV-manufactured mask ROM chips; U0503 & U0504)
  • Flash: 2 MB (2x 8-Mbit AMD AM29F800BT Flash memory; U0501 & U0502)
  • WebTV FIDO ASIC - handles graphics and system logic
  • DS2401 Silicon Serial ID chip
  • V.34 Rockwell modem chipset (L3903-57 microcontroller and RC288DPi modem data pump)
  • Philips SAA7187WP Digital Video Encoder
  • IDT 71256 SRAM
  • Atmel AT27C010-45JC OTP EPROM

1. Starting around late 1998, WebTV Networks started manufacturing old Classic boxes with R4640 CPUs from NKK and ceased the use of CPUs from IDT. This specific "102" revision appears to present this change.
