If I had to guess, I'd venture that NEC used the Trantor T348 or T358 
adapter, which Adaptec dutifully renamed the MA348 and MA358.

My reasoning is that NEC was distributing their external CD-ROM 
drives with Trantor ISA cards (T160?) and probably stayed with the 
same vendor.

The drive mechanisms were the same used in their early audio players--
they had the "push a button and the top swings open" setup.
