NVRAM Module for Atari Pole Position
No More Batteries!
This is a premium quality nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) Replacement for Atari Pole Position Arcade Games. We were in-contact with an arcade repair specialist that has upgraded many Atari Pole Position boards with NVRAM who mentioned he was occasionally experiencing some issues/inconsistencies with regular variety 6116 NVRAM and certain Pole Position boards. We decided to created a slightly different circuit and sent him some samples to try out. After upgrading several boards with this new design the issues he had been experiencing no longer occurred.
Replaces the 6116 RAM on the Pole Position MPU board. Absolutely no batteries are needed to retain your high scores or game settings, you can remove them from your game. Machine pin headers are used on this module which are very durable and won't damage your socket at all.
REQUIRES SOLDERING / MODIFICATION OF MPU!
Please note that upgrading to nvram on Atari Pole Position Arcade Games will require removal of the existing RAM soldered to the board & installation of a 24-pin DIP socket.
WHY REPLACE YOUR EXISTING RAM WITH NVRAM?
Unfortunately battery corrosion damage is much too common in games that used alkaline batteries for powering the RAM when your game is off. Many people have reported that even new batteries from major brands can sometimes leak after a year or two for no apparent reason. The corrosive alkaline can leak or wick into the board and over time will destroy the copper traces on the board and any ICs it comes in contact with. Don't let this happen to your game!
Note: These modules may work with other arcade boards that utilize a 6116 RAM for saving high scores.
NVRAM is shipped in anti-static foam & anti-static bag inside a small USPS First Class Mail box. Installation instructions are included.
Note: The underlying nvram chip / IC used in these modules is long obsolete and extremely costly everywhere. Parts distributors have stock at $50-200 per chip!! 2023 Update - No luck sourcing good parts elsewhere, so looking like this product will be pulled once remaining parts sell out. We have only a few tubes left.
*NOTE: EACH MODULE INCLUDES A NEW 24-PIN IC SOCKET!
