HP Designjet 500 Series Printers - Type of Memory Used to Upgrade

ISSUE: My Designjet 500 series printer came with 16 Megabytes (MB). Can I add additional memory? How much?
SOLUTION: The HP Designjet 500 series printers ship with 16 MB DRAM. You can upgrade by adding an HP-GL/2 accessory card. The card has an additional 16 MB DRAM. In addition, there is one free SODIMM slot on the HP-GL/2 card. You can purchase either a 64 MB DRAM SODIMM or a 128 MB DRAM SODIMM to install in the card.
NOTE: The HP-GL/2 accessory card is a pre-requisite to a memory upgrade. A basic 500 platform is PCL3GUI, which will never run out of memory, therefore has no memory upgrade slot was added to the printer. The memory upgrade slot is included on the HP-GL/2 card, which can benefit from additional memory.
