Hardware-based VGM player for classic FM synth chiptunes.

VGMBoy is a board interfacing a microcontroller with a Yamaha FM synth (YM2608) and a TI PSG (SN76489). This allows it to play back music composed for the Sega Genesis, Sega Master system, FM Towns, PC-98, and most AY-3-8910/YM2149-based machines.
