DIMM (Dual Inline Memory Module) - Definition

DIMM is an abbreviation for Dual Inline Memory Module. It is a circuit board mounted with RAM memory chips. Instead of only having the ability to transfer 32 bits, which is what SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module) does. The DIMM module is more advanced by having the ability to transfer 64 bits. That means the amount of surface-mount memory a circuit board can handle is doubled. As DIMMs have faster data transfer capabilities and lot more bandwidth than SIMMs, they have pretty much replaced them.
