The Pretec PCMCIA Linear Flash Card (AMD D Series) conform to the PCMCIA 2.0/ JEIDA4.1 or PCMCIA1.0/JEIDA4.0 international standard and consist of multiple AMD’s or FUJITSU’s 5V only 16M bits FLASH memory devices and decoder IC mounted on a very thin printed circuit board using surface mounting technology. This series Flash memory cards contain 64 to 512 independent device blocks. Each block can be individually erasable. To support PCMCIA-compatible byte-wide operation, the flash array is divided into 64K 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.
This series Flash memory cards offer portable, reprogrammable and non volatile solid-state storage media and can be used for flexible integration into various system platforms with PCMCIA/JEIDA interface. With the extra and optional 8K bytes “”attribute memory”” space, the Card Information Structure (CIS) can be written into it by PRETEC or by customer with standard format or customized requirements.
