I would certainly think that any new designs would use SRAM, not DRAM,
but at least knowning how the D3242 works will help understanding how
the existing CBM expansion board works.

I don't see a problem with a pair of 62256s or other 32K SRAM (like
old 32Kx8 cache RAMs from old PC motherboards), but there are larger
(and less common) SRAMs than 32Kbytes, if chip count or board size is
an issue.
