that same or similar hardware is inside those cheap scanners...
The HP2300C does not contain a LM983x chip, see my mail on this list
"HP2300C chipset":

Sparrow Main Board V1.2 12-00080-01C with two Chips:

26-00122-03A                           <------- ASIC ???


EliteMT    100MHz                        <------ MEMORY
M11B416256A     -J25J
DZC1HC031        0212

Sparrow CCD Board 12-00079-01A with
