SIMM-30
Author: Gabriel Torres Last Updated: December 29, 2005
Category: Memory

Single In Line Memory Module - 30 pins

SIMM-30 was the first memory module to obtain commercial success, developed over an old memory module type called SIPP. SIMM-30 modules are 8-bit modules and use FPM (Fast Page Mode) memory chips

Since it is an 8-bit module, its installation must be made like the following:

  • 286 and 386SX: Two in two, since the CPU accesses the memory using 16 bits.
  • 386DX, 486 and 5x86: Four in four, since the CPU accesses the memory using 32 bits.

This module was used up to 486 times, being gradually replaced by SIMM-72 memory module.
