Linear Flash PCMCIA Memory PC Cards AMD Series C and AMD Series D, Synchrotech

Linear Flash More Like This Synchrotech PC Card Type I Linear Flash is fully FTL and FFS compatible and features high performance. With no moving parts, a Linear Flash PCMCIA Memory Card is rugged and operates reliably in conditions normally hostile to data. Linear Flash PC Cards are supported by many palmtops, hand-held devices, sub-notebook PCs, PDA, PCA, or Digital Cameras equipped with PC Card slots supporting Linear Flash cards. Unlike ATA Flash, PCMCIA Linear Flash PC Cards support true random access so reads are extremely fast. In addition to data storage and retrieval, Linear Flash PC Cards can also execute programs directly from the card on systems featuring XIP (eXecute In Place) capabilities. XIP is often utilized in vertical market applications and embedded systems. The Linear Flash cards are offered in a variety of capacities with typical access times of 150ns. These AMD series D and C PCMCIA Linear Flash Memory PC Cards are completely compatible with the AMD Command Set. Cards with extended temperature ranges are available by special request, and may take some time to obtain.
