free timekeeper RAM lithium batteries for Ultra5/10

Unpacking some boxes I ran across a small packet of "timekeeper" RAM
Lithium batteries for Ultra5 / Ultra 10.

Since I've given away all my Suns of that class, I have no need of
these spares -- happy to give them (I have 5-6) to NetBSD folks.

The part#s etc. I can see on the chips:

   M48T59Y-70PC1U
   WHT3049X
   TIMEKEEPER(r) RAM
   LITHIUM BATTERY
   MALAYSIA

Looks like a 28pin package, fyi.

The kit is located in Silicon Valley, CA, USA; all I ask in return
is reimbursement for the cost of shipping.

Cheers,
sr.

Is that the same thing they used in the SS20 and U1?

I don't know for certain but I don't believe so.  I have a couple of
others which are pulls from SS10 and SS20 IIRC, and they have different
part numbers than above.

Dunno about Ultra1 -- used them at $WORK but never had one personally.

They do work in a U1 Enterprise.  I also have a couple of spares if anyone in Oz wants them

Re: free timekeeper RAM lithium batteries for Ultra5/10

FYI all the chips have been claimed -- I guess there are a few
Suns out there in need of ID'ing.

Is this still the case? If so, I can send you one. (it's amazing what you find when you actually inventory your
old computers ...)

fortunately, this happened shortly afterwards:

revision 1.32
date: 2009/08/06 18:26:03;  author: macallan;  state: Exp;  lines: +535 -117
make the tcx driver do something useful:
- attach a wsdisplay
- make it work with an S24
- accelerate scrolling and character drawing
This isn't quite finished yet, it works fine as a console but most things
X will need are not functional right now.

... and 10 or so more revisions :)

Re: wscons for tcx

I ask because I'm not seeing the result on an SS5-like box I'm
playing with the "netbsd-5" release branch on ... so, no full
wscons, or did those changes not get pulled up to the release
branch?

No, I got an SS5 and an S24 a while ago and added wscons and accelerated X support for it. I do not have an actual tcx though, do they even exist as AFX cards or are they SS4 onboard only?
The kernel driver runs in 8bit colour and should Just Work on a tcx, the X driver hasn't been well tested in 8bit.

Have fun
