The LINKS NT-190 is a modem cartridge dedicated to 'The LINKS' network, with a speed of 1200 bps, released in April 1986. It is based on a specific protocol developed by Eijiro Taki, president of Nippon Telenet. The official name is 'Network Game Adapter'.

It includes a 16kB ROM with a communication firmware. The NT-190 reference appears probably only on the box, while the underside label of the cartridge says TMA 1200 HSC, just like for the Sanyo KA-MODEM-1 cartridge. The same modem was also sold as the National FS-CM800.
