System Board Y2 is a low-cost arcade system board released by SI Electronics, LTD. in 2009, developed after Kaga Electronics had acquired SIE from Sega Sammy in 2008-07-01.[1]

Countering the contemporary trends of using PC-based systems to cut cost, it uses in-house system-on-a-chip platform to deliver a stable development environment. In order to cut cost, System Board Y2 relies on a long production cycle.
