I'm sorry Jim, but I can't answer your last question. However, I do appreciate the extra information you have provided. The information I have received to date has met my requirements. Thank you very much for the offer of additional project sheets.
Once again - Thank You.

Subject: Some information on Micron Optic Rams
If you are interested. As a student (several decades ago) I developed
several 64K and 512K DRAM cameras. I used TI and Intel DRAMs (at the
time I was unaware of the Micron opticRAM). In its day, I thought
this was pretty cool. The DRAM was attached via tether to my computer
and I varied the refresh rate to get gray scale. Assembly language is
a beautiful thing (or a nightmare). Of course the real trick was to
remove the ceramic package lid and polyimide protective "goop" to
reveal the chip die imaging surface (without damaging the die).
Anyway, I have attached the covers of Mircro IS32 and IS256
information that I readily found. I believe I may still have the
MicronEye Camera and Manual, as well as other information.
If you would like copies of this information let me know. I will be
out of town for a week or so (and I will have to recall where I have
stuff the other information).
Why are you interested in the OpticRam?
