Okay, here are the chips:
Avision 163-54-000005 9748LD042 gullwing package
Two UT61256SC-15 9802 surface-mount DIPs
Avision 112-0009-0 (8534) 9803A BC81E5 18-pin throughhole DIP
National Semiconductor E9742AB LM9811CCV quad J-lead
Texas Instruments 54A20DK HC245 20-pin surface-mount DIP
Is that similar to some known scanner?
