      Yeah, the 1802 and RAM are packed tight end-to-end, and still barely fit
      in the Altoids can. The DS1225 has a coin cell stuck on top of it, which
      adds to the height, and there is none to spare.

      RAMtron makes nonvolatile ferroelectric RAMs that are the same size as a
      regular RAM chip. I haven't tried one, but they are a possibility.
