Reading SIMM modules markings
Posted on 1997-11-03
I have in my possesion a bunch of 72-pin SIMM modules that are not used anymore and I would like to use them again. Just placing them in some of my 486 computers yelded some strange results. I KNOW the modules are good because I was the one that took them out of working computers.
The problem I want to solve is this:
looking at the writting on the chips, I want to know if there is a way to determine what kind of SIMM modules are they. For example:
one SIMM has:
72 pins, tin contacts,
chips on one side only,
there are 8 chips in 2 groups of 4,
on each chip there are three lines of text:
9410 K USA
so ... what does this mean? Is there a site on the Internet that can be used to find out the answer?
