PCMCIA System Architecture: 16-Bit PC Cards, Second Edition
describes PC card hardware and software interfaces and their relationships to overall system design. Developed by the Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) and the Japan Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA), the PC Card Standard defines a standard hardware and software interface for small removable 16-bit cards. This book also examines an adapter implementation using Cirrus Logic CL-PD6722.
PCMCIA expert Don Anderson provides a comprehensive treatment of the interface including:
card information structure
host adapter requirements
card electrical interface
bus cycle control
low voltage support
translation of card interrupts
card event notification
DMA socket interface
enabling and configuring PC cards
card and socket services
If you design or test software or hardware that involves 16-bit PC cards, PCMCIA System Architecture is an essential, time-saving tool.
