The SG-1000, also known as Sega Game 1000, was a third-generation 8-bit home video game console released by Sega on July 15, 1983 and had a Zilog Z80 CPU at 3.58 MHz with 1KB of RAM. This system marked Sega's first entry into the home video game hardware business. The SG-1000 didn't see much success in its home country, mostly due to competition from the technically superior Famicom; it did however enjoy a brief period of popularity in Taiwan, prior to the latter market being inundated by unlicensed Family Computer clones.
Sega's use of off-the-shelf components in developing the console, which was also shared with the ColecoVision, led to at least one unauthorized clone of the SG-1000, manufactured and sold by Taiwan-based Bit Corporation as the Dina 2-in-1. Indeed, the Dina had support for SG-1000 games and ColecoVision titles to a certain extent.
The SC-3000 (also known as Sega Computer 3000) was its home computer counterpart and has a built-in keyboard.
