Memory FAQ Topics
||What is the difference between SIMMs and DIMMs?
||DIMM stands for dual inline memory module, and SIMM stands for single inline memory module. The gold or tin pins on the lower edge of the front and back of a SIMM are connected, providing a single line of communication paths between the module and the system.
The pins on a DIMM are not connected, providing two lines of communication paths between the module and the system, one in the front and one in the back.
SIMMs and DIMMs are not interchangeable; they are different sizes and they install into different types of sockets.
