      Someone recently asked this question and I thought others may have
wondered about it as well. So here is the the question and answer.

      What is the difference between a DIMM and a SIMM?

      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 communication path
between the module and the system. The pins on a DIMM are not connected,
providing two communication paths between the module and the system, one in
the front and one in the back.
