I doubt they're 16 bits wide. The '512' in the part number would suggest 
512KBits, or 32K 16 bit words.

Now, unless I am missing something, a 32K-location RAM would need 15 
address lines. Along with 16 data lines, a write-enable, a chip select 
line, power and ground. That's over 32 pins.

My guess is that they're 64K*8 bits.

Thw logo sounds like UMC, who made a lot of chips that ended up in PCs. I 
have their microprocessor+peripherals databook from about 1990, but 
nothing on their RAMs.
