DRAMS

Dynamic Random Access Memories used in ZX Sopectrum machines.

4116

16Kx1 bit DRAM chip

8 of this IC make the lower 16k part of the ZX Spectrum16/48 RAM.

e.g. NEC D416C-2

Pinout:

VCC (+5V)

4532

32Kx1 bit DRAM chip

The addressing logic uses 8 line (A0 to A7) for row address (RAS) and 7 line (A0 to A6) for column address (CAS). At CAS the A7 line has to be fixed at logic 0 or 1 depending on chip type.

8 of this IC make the upper 32k part of the ZX Spectrum48 RAM.

e.g: TI TMS4532-20NL3 or OKI M3732-L TI TMS4532-20NL4 or OKI M3732-H

Pinout:

A7 should set logical 0 at CAS for TI TMS4532-20NL3 and OKI M3732-L chips, and logical 1 for TI TMS4532-20NL4 and OKI M3732-H chips.

The A7 line is omitted for refresh address.

4164

64Kx1 bit DRAM chip

16 of this IC make the 128K RAM of the ZX Spectrum48 RAM.

e.g:NEC D4164C-3
