BIN / MAO

I'm not czeching on the particulars, but this card could not handle "18MB"

Each SIMM has 9 OKI M41256, 256KBx1 DRAM. So, that would be 8 total
256KB SIMMs, total 2MB?

Is it truly defective, or is that they tried it inan incompatible system?

Chances are that it works.

Sadly, IBM had their own "presence detection" arrangement for 30-pin SIMMs of 256KB or 1MB capacity (with Parity and gold-plated contacts). So-called "Industry Standard" SIMMs will be mis-identified as to capacity etc.

Page 5 of the Mar 93 HMM has only a graphical depiction of the
individual chips on a 30 pin SIMM.
