NEC Teledata Terminal Shop Register (TD7)

I picked up this shop register for 500Yen (~5USD) in Akihabara the other day. It seems liked a steal for a barcode reader, 24V power supply, thermal printer and Windows CE computer. I figured it would be worth the money for a teardown and to salvage the parts. I’d guess this device is from that late 90s or early 2000s. Certainly WindowsCE was all the rage then. The register was manufactured by NEC and for the most part uses Japanese parts. However I was surprised to see a Marvell microcontroller, Intel flash, and Samsung memory. Rather than the more typical SH3, Elpidia RAM, and Toshiba flash produced in Japan.

An interesting find anyway and some useful parts for the junk bin.
