A SIM card as used in a mobile telephone contains the personalised information for the phone, including the network operator and the subscriber information, and so was named "Subscriber Identification Module (SIM)"

  recap 10:18 15 Aug 06

Subscriber Identity Module (SIM); a smart card containing the telephone number of the subscriber, encoded network identification details, the PIN and many other user data such as the phone book. A user's SIM card can be moved from phone to phone s it contains all the key information required to activate the phone.

There is also this explanation:

Single inline module. Same as SIP except with a connector edge instead of leads. (SIP)Single inline package. A component or module that has one row of leads along one side.
