Memory Tester for DRAM Chips with Arduino Mega 2560 (EN)

After my memory tester for SRAMs worked as intended, I went on with my second Arduino shield for testing DRAMs. With this shield the following DRAMs can be tested:

4k x 1: 2104A, 4015, 4027, 7027
16k x 1: 4116, 2117, 6116, 8116, 416, 2116, 3716, U256
16k x 1: 2118
16k x 4: 4416, 2620
32k x 1: 3732H (4532-L4) und 3732L (4532-L3)
64k x 1: 4164, 2600, K565RU5, 8264, 3764
64k x 4: 4464, 41464, 50464
256k x 1: 41256, 53256, 81256, MT1259 883C
256k x 4: 44256, 514256
1024k x 1: 41024, 411000

Theoretically, all other DRAMs that have an identical pin assignments should also be able to be tested. The following video shows how the tester works with a faulty 4116.

To test 4116 chips, the shield has a pin header for the voltages + 5V, + 12V and -5V. In the video, a converted ATX power supply is used, which supplies these voltages stable.
