Default Any PCMCIA to RAM chip adapters?

Anybody know if there are any PCMCIA (Types I and II) cards that allow more RAM to be added to the system if the RAM slots are already full? I have extra RAM chips (SDRAM 66) that I want to be able to use with my laptop, but my laptop's 2 RAM slots have already been used. I don't know if such a card/device exists, but in my mind it would be a card with a sort of tray for the RAM chip(s).

Is this even possible? If it is, I'll keep on searching for it..

I think even sdram bandwidth is extrememly high, the gigabytes per second range. PCMCIA isnt fast enough for that by a long shot.
