SIMM Single Inline Memory Module is an older RAM technology that was last seen on Pentium 1 class motherboards.

The memory devices on SIMMs were either Fast Page Mode or Enhanced Data Output.

Oh yes, SIMMs have pins on only 1 side and came in 30 and 72 pin versions.

DIMM Dual Inline Memory Module is the current package for most computer RAM.

You have the original 168 pin version, 184 pin DDR, and 240 pin DDR-2.

While there was some crossover at the start with EDO chips, most DIMMs use some style of SDRAM or DDR (double data rate) chips.
