ISA to PCMCIA interface PC card

Buffered Parallel Bus Interface PCMCIA Card - B100

The B100 allows designers of proprietary equipment to connect to the PCMCIA bus of a laptop or notebook.  The card buffers and controls a parallel 8-bit wide data bus and offers 4 strobes, 11 address lines and two signals that make the card easier to use legacy ISA boards.  The card can be supplied on its own, or can be supplied as part of a kit known as the "PIK1" which allows legacy 8-bit ISA boards to be connected.  Contact sales for PIK1 data and pricing.  The B100 card includes a Plug-n-Play CIS to allow the system to recognize and allocate resources to it.
