Hello, One piece of equipment (Lecroy scope) takes a compact flash card via a PCMCIA adapter, but the combo must not implement a CRC check, or the scope can't write the card. I think this is implemented in the PCMCIA adapter rather than the card. Does anyone know of a PCMCIA/CF combination that doesn't do the CRC? Thanks, Dave

I have an existing product, using an 8 MHz 12 cycle 8032, interfaced to a ruggedized handheld PC via 232 at 9600. We would like to shrink the product and put it on a PCMCIA card. What are some good products and information resources to come up to speed on the serial-> PCMCIA replacement? The 8032 code is written in C and could be fairly easily ported to another processor, if there were an a

Dear Friends... For my project I am working with philips ARM7 based LPC2214 microcontroller and now I have to interface PCMCIA GSM modem with the circuit. I need to transmit some data by this modem because of its low cost and I need to go for near about 20,000 boards so interfacing PCMCIA is very benificial cost wise. The problem I am facing I don't know how to interface this modem with LPC2...

Hello, Does anyone know of any good resources for interfacing to a 16 bit PCMCIA card from a microcontroller can be found? Or has anyone done this and can lend some advice? Assuming I have enought IO from my controller would this be a difficult undertaking besides the fact of software to control whatever device I wish to talk to?. Thanks Josiah

We (my fellow employees and I) have been working on an MPC860-based target that is not unlike some we've developed in the past except that we have added a PCMCIA slot in which we use compact flash (CF) cards. The PCMCIA section design was based on Wind River's wrMdpPro8xx reference board and, being a VxWorks shop, we used the pccardlib.c and sys8xxPcmcia.c modules from wrMdpPro8xx BSP as our ...

Hi everyone. I'm a new member with a lot of basic questions. The project I'm working on now is to monitor the PCMCIA signal being sent to a CF card for storage. Every time an action is taken on this embedded system, a small output file is written to the card. How can I monitor this signal as it's happening? Of course I can just remove the card and transfer the file, but that won't work ...

I was thinking of using a Linear Flash card but I've never used such a thing before. I don't know how different they are from SRAM. SRAM card was simply a memory space in my microcontroller's view so there was reall...

I'm looking for a way to read data from a PCMCIA PC SRAM card while it's in a device. This might sound extremely weird, but basically, the device writes data to the card, but we'd like to read it without using the device's protocol. Is there any way to do this ? Or can we replicate the writes to a different card that we can read ? Any help is appreciated ! Wim
