PCMCIA System Architecture

16-Bit PC Cards, Second Edition

by Don Anderson,

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:

  • socket interface
  • card information structure
  • host adapter requirements
  • card electrical interface
  • bus cycle control
  • address translation
  • 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.
