Yes, but as Matthew Stier points out, they are a little pricey.
The model Chuck Smoko pointed me to lists for over $1500.
For that price I can afford to take a sparc 20 out of production
for a few minutes and test SIMMs using the test-memory
diags in the boot prom.

Check out:
for the "Chroma" model SIMM tester which to be fair sounds
like it gives a lot of diagnostic info.

Thanks again to:
