 Description Return to top of page

Quatech's PCD2-F/PCI-E internal PCMCIA interface adapter allows desktop PCs to access the technology used in laptop, notebook, and hand-held computers. Once installed in a standard PCI slot the PCD2-F/PCI can accommodate Type I, II or III PCMCIA devices including memory cards, ATA hard disk cards, modems, and a variety of other PCMCIA I/O devices.

The PCD2-F/PCI-E is installed into one empty PCI slot and one 3.5" floppy drive bay in the front of the computer (it can be used in a 5.25" bay with Quatech's 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. 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/PCI-E supports any combination of 16-bit PC cards powered at 3.3V or 5V. It can be used in any IBM compatible PC with a Pentium or equivalent processor. Support is provided for Windows 95 OSR2/98/Me/2000/XP.
