The Pretec PCMCIA Linear Flash Card (Intel Series 1) conforms to PCMCIA/JEIDA international standard and consist of multiple Intel’s 28F010 or 28F020 (or compatible) flash memory devices and decoder IC mounted on a very thin printed circuit board using surface mounting technology. Each card is organized as an array of individual memory segments. Each segment is 128K (or 256K) bytes in size. With this segment structure, the electrical segment-erasure capability gives the designer the flexibility to selectively rewrite segments of data while saving other segments for infrequently updated look-up tables.
This series Flash memory cards offer portable, reprogrammable and nonvolatile 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 OEM with standard format or customized requirements.
