Being the kind of person who likes to take things apart, I took it upon myself to discover the inner secrets of the VM. The following (slightly fuzzy) photos show what I found (Sorry 'bout the fuzzyness, but I've only got a cheapo digital camera!)

My UK VMU running Chao Adventure. Note that, unlike the US VMU, there is no DC swirl logo, just the Dreamcast name.

The text on the chip reads:

5J49   8LGJ

And printed on the back of the screen is:
971204 FH114 A
