Thread: WTB: DRAM Chip for a Tandy 1000 SL

    Default WTB: DRAM Chip for a Tandy 1000 SL

    Hello All, I have narrowed down the ram issue with my Tandy 1000 SL to one bad MT4067-12 If anyone has an extra MT4067-12, 41464-12, or LH2464-12 it would be greatly appreciated! I went on eBay to check for it, but most are either listed as untested from the US or from overseas also in unknown condition, overpriced. I'd rather source the chip from a community I trust. PM me and we can work something out!

    Thank you, I saw them on jameco. I wasn't sure if it was safe to mix a 100ns with 120ns chips, or if the Tandy was capable handling that 20ns difference

    No problem. As a matter of fact, at least one manufacturer quit selling graded-by-speed DRAMs in at least one part as nearly the entire production exceeded the max standard speed spec. That is, the original offerings were 150, 120, 100 and 80 nsec. Eventually, production was turning them out so they all were better than 70 nsec., so they quit grading them by speed, thereby simplifying inventory issues.

    Progress marches on...

    Huh I didn’t know that, learn something new every day! Thanks I’ll be putting in the order today. I usually buy caps in bulk so the $6 shipping makes sense. Why buy a $2.00 part with 6 dollars shipping when you can buy 200 different caps with the same shipping cost
