"Two-story"  256 DIMM memory chips, for what kind of PC?

I won a bid on a lot (16) of DIMM memory, supposedly 256 MB each.
I did not pay attention on the description when bidding, thing is, these chips are like double the height of a 'regular' chip, what kind of memory is it?, I don't know: SDRAM?, ECC?, EDO?, non-ECC?, NP?. The guy selling mentioned something about "Unisys". The memory modules have 36 IC chips (18 on each side). Numbers and letters on them go like: " NEC UK D4265405G5-A50-7 JD 9928ESL 02 ".
The manufacturer is Viking Components.
Will appreciate any help / input

What I really want to know is, if there's anything I can do to use this memory chips on my computers. My machines are IBM-compatible, most of them Pentiums  from 400 MHz to 2.4 GHz

look here for specs : (4X256MB) EDO ECC Buffered-3.3V 168Pin DIMMs


if your motherboard can handle this, it should work
