Technical Insanity

With the idea of finding some boot roms, for some NIC’s that lack them, Ive been raiding a box of old computer equipment. As I didn’t have that much time I grabbed every chip that was in a socket,  below is what I found!

Above: Identified components. Part IDs are links to datasheets. If there is no link, I couldnt find the datasheet.

I have eight chips (Ok, so three are the same) which I can find no information on, any help appreciated!

[1st] (Qty: 3) 20 pin DIP Chip reads:
AAA1M304P-08
NMBS     9146

[2nd] (Qty: 1) 20 pin DIP Chip reads:
OTI068 850167-243
OAK TECHNOLOGY
INC A9202 501A

[3rd] (Qty: 1) 28 pin DIP Chip reads:
9205
OTI066ADV-66
OAK TECH.

[4th] (Qty: 1) 28 pin DIP Chip reads:
UMC
UM70C188
9446A
N20474

[5th] (Qty: 1) 28 pin DIP Chip reads (I know this one is a samsung) :
KDA0476CN-66
KOREA 219

[5th] (Qty: 1) 28 pin DIP Chip reads:
Winbond
W27F256-12
94401

I also got a stack of other eeproms, but the are all OPT (One time program) so they are useless to me. Im not binning then though, I have a project in mind. Well, 2. But an extreme voltage overload is only funny whilst you have 2 eyes.

So, if you have any datasheets that match the chips in the table above or you have any info (the data sheet would be amazing) for the chips listed as unknown, please send them to me!
