The PCCARD is a PC/104-Plus interface adapter that provides the 8/16 bit PC Card™ and 32 bit CardBus™ functionality to your system.
PCCARD offers two independent PC Card™ standard slots that are backwards compatible with the PCMCIA standard. So PCCARD gives you access to the wide spread CardBus™, PC Card™ or PCMCIA Cards. Through the huge functionality these cards offer your system gain in a maximum flexibility. PCCARD is available as PC/104-Plus module or in a special MPL form factor used for the MPL packaged industrial PCs (PIP).
These features make the PCCARD to the ideal, industrial solution if you need to expand your system with a compact, reliable interface that gives you maximum flexibility. PCCARD connects your system to any available CardBus™, PC Card™ or PCMCIA-Card. This allows you for example to expand your system by removable memory and/or I/O cards (Flash Disks, Ethernet, FireWire, Modem, and more).
