Intel Series 2 Flash Memory Cards

Product Overview
Intel's second generation Flash Memory Cards feature block erasure providing data file and application storage in removable non-volatile memory. Series 2 Flash Cards are ideal for a broad range of applications, from mobile PCs and PDAs to embedded systems. The Flash Cards are lightweight, extend system battery life and withstand rugged environments where small form factor rotating disks are not suitable or just can't fit. The cards adhere to the PC Card Standard.

Product Description
The functionality of the Series 2 Flash Memory Cards is based on Intel's ETOX™: III 8 Megabit FlashFile™: Memories. Each memory card consists of a PCMCIA connector, an array of 28F008SA flash memories in TSOP packaging and two card control logic devices. The control logic devices provide the system interface and control the internal flash memories.

The Intel Series 2 Flash Memory Card features fast random access, byte-wide and word-wide operation, low power modes and a Card Information Structure (CIS) for easy identification of card characteristics.

Combined with file management software, such as Flash Translation Layer (FTL), Series 2 Flash Cards provide removable high-performance disk emulation in mobile personal computers.
