    The only differnece between a uC and a uP is that uC alone can work as a cingle chip computer without need of external sticky chips like EPROM, SRAM etc. where as uP just processes data. Rest everything is exetrnal for it.
    So a mod. chip is definately a microcontroller with hardly 2-3 chips on the MOD PCB. These additional chips may be reset controllers and some additinal peripherals or NV RAM for data storage.

    What is ( Mod. ) abbreviating ?
    I am read ( modchip ) but I do not understand it !!

    another question :
    How the hackers can bring points to connect the modchip in a console ?
    For Example :
    Playstation2 has 32 point to connect ( Messiah ) modchip .
