Not a database as such bu there is a thread here. viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3172

If you're after a specific game post in there and someone may be able to share/upload genuine PCB images.

There is no definitive answer but take these two for instance.

The SEGA board is much higher quality PCB with a keyed JAMMA connector and much thicker traces. SEGA silkscreen is present n the PCB and the custom ICs. There is also a SEGA serial number sticker on the audio heat sink. (not pictured)

A quick google image search for "game name" PCB is usually helpful.
