Alrighty i have two sparc 1 motherboards that i dont know if they are dead or what. what i think is
that both the NVRAM and the IDPROM on both of these are fried. (bought these at an auction for
pretty cheap so who knows what condition they are in)

Anybody know of a way for me to obtain (buy) both of these chips?

You can buy a new NVRAM chip.  I bought one for a SPARCstation 1, too.
 Try Mouser Electronics, at http://www.mouser.com, I think.  That's
where I bought mine.

Best,
Sean Wilson

1. IDPROM / NVRAM for a SPARCStation 2

Hi all,

I have an old SPARCStation2 sitting around, and it needs a new IDPROM
or NVRAM or maybe both chips. I read the hardware FAQ some time ago,
and determined this was why I was unable to install Linux for SPARC on
it (that and Linux told me so)

What part numbers do I need?

Can anyone in Vancouver, BC, recommend a place where I can buy the
parts locally?

Thanks!

Josh.

PS, please reply via email.
