These types of cartridges were used within the factory checking process as well as within Nintendo authorized repair centers, and were designed to ensure correct operation of all units coming in for repair. This includes tests to see how well it performs under stress, making sure the LCD is working correctly, and testing the timer. Interestingly this version appears to have been intended for SLOT-2 on a Nintendo DS! It contains a few differences when compared to previously dumped versions, with the main change being that the tests only run for an hour instead of two.
