Hi,

Yes, the Pins (H1 and G2) are not used by the SRAM placed on the board, because to address 256k you only need 18 bit.

But even thought the Pins MAD19 and MAD20 are not used by that particular SRAM, they are still routed to the footprint to allow a replacement of the SRAM by a bigger one (up to 1M x 16bit) if needed.

regards,

Achim
