5114 NVRAM Module

No More Batteries!

This is a premium quality Battery Eliminator / NVRAM for the 5114 RAM used in some arcade machines. Once installed, you can remove the batteries from your machine and your high scores / settings will be saved for many years to come!

Replaces a 2114, 5114, 5514, 6514, 9114 or compatible pinout 1024 x 4 SRAM on specified machines below. These modules use CYPRESS F-RAM nvram ICs rated at 151-year data retention & 100 trillion reads/writes. Module installs easily into any IC socket.

Batteries leak. Even brand new batteries from major brands have leaked a year or two later for no apparent reason and cause hundreds of dollars in repairs or replacement of boards and components affected. Upgrading to NVRAM will save you time, money and any future worry of battery damage. It's one of the best mods you can do to your games!


Some boards require desoldering the 5114 RAM currently on the board and installation of an IC socket. If you do not have proper equipment or experience to perform the upgrade, please hire a professional to upgrade your board. Any attempt to modify your board is AT YOUR OWN RISK. See our article on an example of an NVRAM upgrade that requires soldering.

NVRAM is shipped in anti-static foam & anti-static bag. An IC socket is included.

See the COMPATIBILITY LIST below for more info.



The 5114 Module should work with many arcade games that used a 2114, 5114, 5514, 6514, 9114, etc. Modules are designed to work with original linear power supplies. If using a switching power supply, some additional modifications / considerations may need to be considered (ie. it's been noted on arcade forums that some games may require a 4700uf-12000uf 25v filter capacitor across the 12v power supply rail on switching power supplies to prevent RAM corruption at power down). Unfortuantely we are not experts with arcade machines, so please do some research on KLOV or other online forums BEFORE ordering!

Note that the F-RAM chips latch each address on the falling edge of the /CE (chip enable) line. The /CE line must be toggled for every read/write (not tied to GND), this can be verified via schematics or a logic analyzer. There may be timing or other hardware incompatibilities to take into consideration when using this module with games not listed below.

Unfortunately we are not heavy into arcade games, so info listed above for compatibility is based on customer reports or information we could find online. We are doing our best to update this information as customers report what does and doesn't work, however you'll want to consult your manual to determine quantity of 5114 RAM used in your game. Also, we recommend doing a search at KLOV arcade forum for your "YOUR_GAME_NAME nvram" so you're aware of what installation steps may be necessary, further compatibility info, etc.

This NVRAM may work with the following arcade games:

  • Berzerk (replace RAM at location 1E and set W11 jumper for "6514" per manual)
  • Blaster
  • Bubbles (needs 2x of these nvram modules to replace RAM at locations 0B & 1C)
  • Frenzy (replace RAM at location 1E and set W11 jumper for "6514" per manual)
  • Joust
  • Joust2
  • Qix (requires 2x modules staggered & possible capacitor upgrade to power supply, see this forum post for more info)
  • Robotron
  • Sinistar
  • Splat
  • Stargate
  • Zookeeper (requires 2x modules staggered & possible capacitor upgrade to power supply, see this forum post for more info)

Note: This module is not being sold as compatible with Zaccaria G2 pinball machines as some issues have been reported.
While these issues could be isolated to certain games or configurations, it appears better compatibility is achieved by using a dual-5114 nvram module specifically made for Zaccaria games since the RAM chips work together. We currently do not have a Zaccaria G2 specific NVRAM available.

Please let us know if you have success using this module successfully in other arcade games so we can add them to the list!
