Is Briel 4Mb IIgs Ram Card sensitive to chip count?

Postby newbill123 » Oct Thu 07, 2010 3:10 pm

This doesn't fit with the Replica 1, Micro-Kim, Altair, PocketTerm, or Marketplace forums. Sorry if this is off topic here.

I recently discovered the (empty) Briel 4Meg GS RAM Card, and realized I have (at least) 4 extra SIMMs from old dead Macs. This is a gut, spur of the moment purchase idea, but I'd like to know if a Briel card will let me goose up my old GS with these parts which have been languishing unused for so long.

My concern: Though each SIMM has 30 pins, I've read that other IIgs expansions cards may be sensitive to the chip count. These SIMMS have 8 chips instead of the 9 depicted on the Briel IIgs product photo (on page ?p=321 ). Is the Briel card sensitive to the number of chips? Are these SIMMs compatible?

(C) 1988 Apple Computer
10-31-88 (stamped in black)

820-0246-02 (I'm assuming this is the part number)
670- (is marked with a black marker)
338C- (is blank)

Each SIMM has 8 chips labelled: KM41C1000P-10-834 KOREA

In summary: Will these work with the Briel 4Meg GS RAM Card?

Thanks for your time.

Best thing to do is try them (if you have the card itself). Worse case is they are still very much available, I just prefer buying them from a dealer that warranties them and they come in matched sets of 4.
