 PCMCIA Intel Series II & II+ Compatible Linear Flash Card


Intel Series II/II+ Compatible Linear  Flash Card

Product Overviews                              

PSI/C-1 Tech’s Linear Flash cards are fully PC Card (Type I) compatible and operate faster than hard disks, but are removable like floppy disks. Since there are no moving parts, Linear Flash cards operate reliably in conditions that can be normally hostile to data. These cards use solid-state components that can be used day-in-day-out because they are far more reliable than the moveable parts of hard drives.  

Our Flash Memory card is a perfect choice of solid-state mass-storage cards for Palmtops, Hand-held devices, Sub-notebook PC, PDA, PCA, or Digital Cameras equipped with PC Card slots supporting Series II/II+ flash cards. With the optional 2K or 8K bytes "attribute memory" space, the Card Information Structure (CIS) can be written into the card at the factory with standard format or customized requirements. (Customers can only read rather than write into the CIS).

Linear Flash PC Cards support true random access so reads literally happen in a flash. Not only can these cards access stored data rapidly; they can also execute programs directly from the card. This opens the doors for vertical applications. PSI/C-1 Tech’s Linear Flash PC Cards are offered in a variety of read/write voltages. Typical access times are 150ns. However, some faster cards are available.  

Non-volatile Linear Flash cards are used in a variety of applications, including networking and telecom equipment, industrial controls and instrumentation.

Random access, ruggedness and reliability are the basic qualities required of Linear Flash cards. Adding convenient size and low power consumption makes a sure winner.

Our high performance Flash memory cards conform to the PCMCIA / JEIDA international standard. Each card contains multiple Intel 28F008SA/28F016SA(or compatible) Flash memory devices and decoder IC mounted on a very thin printed circuit board using surface mount technology.  Each 28F008SA contains sixteen individually-erasable , 64K byte blocks whereas the 28F016SA contains thirty-two blocks (64 Kbytes) ; therefore , this series Flash memory cards contain from 32 blocks (in 2 MB cards) to 448 blocks (in 28 MB cards). To support PCMCIA compatible byte-wide operation , the flash array is divided into 128K x 8 bits device blocks. To support PCMCIA compatible word-wide operation , the devices are paired so that each accessible memory block is 64K words.

Note: To access and copy files to and from these linear flash cards, you need a PC card reader like OmniDrive USB Pro-LF reader with proprietary driver for linear flash cards.
