Internal ISA to PCMCIA Interface Adapter with Slots in Front Drive Bay Supports all PCMCIA 2.1 compliant Type I, II and III PCMCIA cards Accepts Type III cards and Type I/II cards at the same time, in the same drive bay 16-bit ISA controller card ExCA compliant 82365SL controller Compatible with all industry standard Flash File Systems (Including Microsoft FFS) Available with 3.5" internal drive chassis (Optional 5.25" bay adapter available) Supported under DOS, Windows, and OS/2
The PCD2-F internal PCMCIA interface adapter allows desktop PCs to access the technology used in laptop, notebook, and hand-held computers. Once installed in a standard 16-bit ISA slot, the PCD2-F can accommodate any Type I, II or III PCMCIA device including memory cards, ATA hard disk cards, modems, and the large variety of other PCMCIA I/O devices including communication and data acquisition PCMCIA cards.
The PCD2-F is installed into one 3.5" floppy drive bay in the front of the computer (it can be used in a 5.25" bay with the SSD adapter) and provides two PCMCIA sockets. The drive can accept either two Type I or II cards in any combination, or one Type III card and one Type I or II card. In many other dual slot PCMCIA drives, the use of a Type III card in slot 1 will incapacitate slot 0. This PCD2-F advantage means that both an I/O card such as a modem and an ATA hard disk card can be used at the same time in the same drive bay.
The PCD2-F can read from and write to FLASH and SRAM memory cards, and can read from OTPROM (one Time Programmable) and EPROM memory cards. Memory card sizes up to 64 megabytes are supported.
The PCD2-F is supported under DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95/98 and OS/2 version 2.1 or higher. Support for Windows 2000 will be released soon. One copy of Card and Socket Services is included to allow the PCD2-F to operate in DOS and Windows 3.1. Windows 95/98/2000 and OS/2 include PCMCIA support in the operating system, thus for them the supplied Card and Socket Services will not be needed.
