The Pretec PCMCIA Linear Flash Card (Intel Series 2+) Card Series 5 conforms to PCMCIA2.0/JEIDA4.1 or PCMCIA1.0/JEIDA4.0 international standard and consist of multiple Intel’s 28F008S5 (or 28F016S5) or compatible Flash memory devices and decoder IC mounted on a very thin printed circuit board using surface mounting technology. PRETEC PCMCIA Linear Flash Card Series 5 maintains backwards-compatibility with Series 2 family, key enhancements include: smart voltage allows Vpp to be 5V or 12V, 12V option renders the faster block erase, program performance; enhance suspend capabilities; in-system block locking. This series Flash memory cards contain 32 to 512 independent device blocks. Each block can be individually erasable.
To support PCMCIA-compatible byte-wide operation, the flash array is divided into 128K bytes per block. 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 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.
