1. DRAM-Chip-to-Module-Size-Correlation
Single In-line Memory Modules (SIMM) are available as 30-pin modules with 8Bit data width (with parity: 9Bit) or 72-pin modules with 32Bit data width (with parity: 36Bit). The data capacity of a module is given in MegaByte (1 MegaByte= 1 MByte= 1 MB) and 1 Byte is eqivalent to a data width from 8 Bit.

Small Outline J-Lead (SOJ)

Thin Small Outline Package Type II (TSOP Type II)

Common used packages of the soldered DRAM chips are Thin Small Outline Package Type II (TSOP Type II) or Small Outline J-Lead (SOJ)

30-pin modules are available in 256kB, 1MB, 2MB, 4MB, 8MB and 16MB with or without parity and 2, 4 or 8 data chips per module. Normally the chips are placed one-sided only.

72-pin modules (also called PS/2) are available in 1MB, 2MB, 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB and 128MB with or without parity in both EDO and FPM type and 2, 4, 8 or 16 data chips. The chips are placed one-sided or on both sides.

Looking at the number of pins on each individual data chip on the module can give you an idea of the data capacity of the chips and thus the module. Remember the Number-of-Pins-to-Data-Capacity-per-Chip-Correlation:

A module with 8 chips in SOJ-package and each 24 pins in 4 sets of 6 pins (--> 16MBit Chip) has a data capacity from 16MByte because
16MBit x 8 Chips ---------------- = 16MByte 8Bit/Byte and a module with 4 chips in TSO-package and each 32 pins in 4 sets of 8 pins (--> 64MBit Chip) has a data capacity from 32MByte because 64MBit x 4 Chips ---------------- = 32MByte 8Bit/Byte

It is difficult to read the part number (maybe xx16100). The number of pins per chip relates to common TSOP Type II.This foto (found somewhere on the Internet) shows a very rare item: a 30-Pin SIM. but the memory chips with 24 pins in 4 groups to 6 pins allow the identification.

Usually the number starts with two or three characters which are specific to the manufacturer. total memory and refresh address range is given. then the mode of operation terminating with the memory speed (for manufacturers specific part number code decoding see the Part Number Chart). nibble. However. The charts below provide information for major packages of DRAM chips. In early 1990s the most common types were FPM and FPM with EDO (Extended Data Out). Generally each manufacturer uses his own scheme to mark memory chips. a simple algorithm can be used in most cases to determine the exact type of chip. then the number of bits per chip. For an FPM.
