This is a work in progress. I wanted to test if the passive electrical components on my copy of Super Smash Bros were working, because I have been having an issue where the game data will not save to the SRAM on the cart. Looking around, I could not find a list of the values for the components inside the cart. So I de-soldered and measured them, and compared my measurements to the printed color values on the resistors/caps.
This pertains to the NUS-03A-01 PCB for Smash Bros. I'm not sure if it is exactly the same for every iteration of the S-RAM N64 games, but people are suggesting that the components are interchangeable across games that use the same save technology, so I assume the PCB and components would have to be nearly identical for this to work. Anyways, I will update this with more information as I discover it, but hopefully the info here can help someone else:
Here is a picture for reference locations:
I used a couple handy websites to decode the color codes on the resistors and caps:
