DECStation memory

Just a (hopefully) quick question. Are the memory modules from the
VAXStation series (think it was a 3100) compatible with the DECStation
5K/200s ? These are 80-pin 16MB SIMM modules I believe, can't say more
at the moment as there aren't here. Looking at some of the archives it
seems there were two 'kit' memory setups (2 piece or 4 piece which I
was presuming was to do with the interleaving ??) and one module
(MS44-AA) setup for the VAXStation model 76 (4MB) but nothing that
quite matches. The pin layout, data path/bit counts seem to be OK but
thats not exactly saying that much. Any ideas / comments ?
