Sun's precise term for them are "mezzanine" modules because they stack 
one on top the other using nesting connectors--male on the underside of 
the module, female on the top. This allows for ultra-low-profile 
applications that prevent airflow obstruction in 1U boxes like the 
Netra t1. Most if not all were made by Celestica for Sun.

Pic here for the curious:


Quite a cool, ingenious formfactor. In most configs two stackable 
modules are supported (up to 2x512mb) in the t1 models, but early in 
the production run some shipped with a special 256mb mezzanine module 
that could 4-stack to make 1gb because of a shortage in the 512mb 
modules. For a 4-stack to work, all four modules *MUST* be the special 
256mb version (p/n 370-4155), or only the two physically lowest modules 
in the stack are mapped into address space... IIRC...

...but I digress. :)

Yes, I should be able to scare something up for you. If I don't get 
back to you soon, feel free to light a match under me offlist; I'm in 
the middle of a move and admittedly have a lot on my plate right now.

Out of curiosity, why are you necessarily looking for a small amount?
