This video is kindly sponsored by PCBWay – Https://www.PCBWay.com. I’ve bought some CLEARLY skimmed and remarked chips that claim to be 4116 and 4164 DRAMs respectively. 4116 and 4164/4264 chips are used in a variety of old computers from Atari, Amstrad, Sinclair and Commodore so they are useful to have on hand… if they work!
Join me for the build and watch the testing at the end – first with two known good chips then we test the remarked parts!!
