This part was taken from a Motronic M1.7.3 engine control unit (ECU), which was commonly used on 1.6L & 1.8L 4-cylinder BMWs of the mid-E36 generation. While this chip was likely used on a number of ECUs, the specific one in this case had Bosch PN 0 261 203 661.

This chip is believed to be a Hitachi HM6264B 8KB SRAM. It provides XRAM to the 80C515 MCU used in the ECU.

Note: This is a ~4X downsampled version of the original image. A full resolution version (17MB) can be provided. On the to-do list…
