Single Rear Slot Universal Low Profile PCI to PCMCIA Adapter: P311
This product is recommended for Systems Integrators and OEMs only due to the non-standard "volume envelope" that is required around the host's PCI connector.
To cater for the latest generation of Low Profile PCs that can only use Low Profile PCI add-in boards, Elan has created the P311. This model, from the P-Series range, features a Cardbus Type II slot and a circuit board that conforms to the MD1 profile specification. It will allow you to use any TypeI or TypeII PCMCIA or Cardbus card. Due to the space restrictions of Low Profile PCs and the relatively large size of PCMCIA cards, the P311 may not be mechanically compatible with every motherboard, although typically at least one PCI connector will have suitable free space around it to use the P311. Please see below for further details.
