Supplemental Computing Device

Oh, I'm an idiot. I didn't realize you were just shortening it.

I can't imagine how licensing hardware out would even work.

It could literally just be a second GPU or something, much like a streamlined version of Crossfire setups on PC. 

If you have a home NX maybe SCD upgrades the graphics to 2K-4K resolution. 

If you have a portable NX, maybe buying a SCD upgrades the system to home NX quality so you don't neccessarily have to buy the console.
