A '''modchip''' (short for '''modification chip''') is a small electronic device used to modify or disable built-in restrictions and limitations of computers, specifically [[videogame console]]s. It introduces various modifications to its host system's function, including the circumvention of [[region coding]], [[digital rights management]], and [[copy protection]] checks for the purpose of running software intended for other markets, copied game media, or unlicensed third-party ([[Homebrew (video games)|homebrew]]) software.
