Examples of 41256 class RAM chips

256K by 1 bit, in a particular pin configuration ('pinout').
256K by 1 bit = 262,144 bits

Note that some makers did not use "41256" in their part number.  That is because makers did not need to adhere to a common naming standard.  Some makers may have even purposely not used 41256 to avoid possible litigation action.

DIP packages (of plastic and ceramic) listed only - LCC and SIP and ZIP packages are omitted.

Japanese makers tend not to print prefixes on ICs and transistors.  In photos below, it is seen that at least NEC and Oki are in that category for the 41256.



IMPORTANT:  The table below does not show all of the chip's characteristics/specifications (that is what a datasheet is for).
Apart from major differences (such as access time), there can be differences (some subtle) that result in a particular 41256 chip not being suitable for your purpose.
Sometimes, a device maker will produce a list of chips known to be compatible with their device (example).
