PSI/C-1 Tech AMD C/D Series Compatible Linear  Flash Card


Product Overviews

Our high performance Flash memory cards conform to the PCMCIA / JEIDA international standard. Each card contains multiple AMD's Flash memory devices and decoder IC mounted on a very thin printed circuit board using surface mount technology.  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

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.

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 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).

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.
