Hi Jim, thanks for the info.
Always good to know what people think are good
cards, and what aren?t.

I?ve been struggling getting a 64k Dynamic RAM

SRAM card that can get the IMSAI up to 56k.
In terms if SRAM cards, I presently have:
2 x Problem solver RAM16 cards - both seem to
2 x 8K RAM cards - both seem to be working.
Less cards generating heat, and putting stress
on the old power supply is obviously best, so
I?d be looking for either:
- 1 x 16k SRAM card (for a total of 4 RAM
cards (3 x 16k + 1 x 8k) in my system). A PSS
RAM16 would be preferred for sake of
consistency, but obviously not crucial.
- 1 x 32k SRAM card (for a total of 3 RAM
cards (1 x 32k, 1 x 16k + 1 x 8k) in my
- 1 x 64k SRAM card that can have the last 8k
bank turned off
I would love to hear from anyone with one of
the above cards who would be willing to pass
Much thanks for your time.
I do not have any to pass on, but in the day,
you couldn't do better than IMS 16k's I also
had a Tarbell CPU with 256k of Dram, and that
was the only dynamic ram I ever had in an S100
Also if you can find Compupro, I suspect it is
as likely to be perfect as the IMS boards are.
