With this PCMCIA CardBus PC Card Reader installed on desktop computer, users can enjoy the same PCMCIA functionality that laptop computer provides. Your desktop computer can do what a laptop computer does, including but not limited to the following:

 


Installing this low-profile PCI-to-PCMCIA card drives is an ideal method to add a PCMCIA CardBus PC Card slot to a desktop computer of any form factor (standard, mini-tower, low-profile, slimline, small form factor, etc). This high performance PCI interface front-access single-slot PCMCIA PC card reader-writer is compatible with any desktop computer with an available PCI expansion slot. The front 3.5" or 5.25" drive bay mounting or externally stand-alone design make inserting or removing PCMCIA cards much more convenient.

This desktop computer PCI Bus to PCMCIA 16-bit PC Card and 32-bit CardBus PC Card Reader/Writer (aka PCMCIA Card Drive, PCMCIA Adapter, Socket Controller) is equipped with one Type III PCMCIA CardBus card slot that accommodates all kinds of Type I, Type II, & Type III PCMCIA PC cards.   [All three types PC Card devices are 85.6 mm long and 54.0 mm wide. This is the same size as a credit card. The only difference between the card types is thickness. The thicknesses are 3.3, 5.0, and 10.5 mm for Type I, Type II, and Type III cards respectively. Because they differ only in thickness, a thinner card can be used in a thicker slot. Thus a Type III slot can accept Type I, Type II, and Type III cards. On the contrary, a thicker card can not be used in a thinner slot.]

This desktop PCMCIA CardBus Card Adapter, using the highly compatible Texas Instruments PCI1510 PCMCIA CardBus controller chipset, requires no special drivers. It uses Microsoft built-in Windows XP/Vista/7 native driver for the TI PCI1510 controller. Simply plug the supplied PCI interface card into a PCI expansion slot on the computer motherboard, boot, and Windows XP, Vista, & 7 will automatically detect this PCMCIA card reader and install the Windows built-in PCMCIA driver. This hardware also works with Windows 98SE/ME/2000 with the optional IRQ steering driver (not provided in the package).  This hardware is also known to work with Mac OS, Linux, and Open BSD, [Note: Amtron Technology does not support installation for system running Linux or Open BSD.]

This PCI-to-PCMCIA CardBus PC Card Reader supports all kinds of PCMCIA Type I, Type II, & Type III 16-bit PC cards (such as ATA flash memory card, hard drives, linear flash card, SRAM card, wired / wireless IEEE802.11b or Bluetooth ethernet network/LAN and modem card, DEXIS interface card, I/O card, etc.) and 32-bit CardBus PC cards (such as IEEE1394 / USB2.0 / eSATA adapters, 3G/ 3.5G wireless modem PC Card, Panasonic DVCPRO P2 card, etc.).  This PCMCIA card drives also reads & writes other types of data storage cards such as CompactFlash (CF) card, MicroDrive, Memory Stick (MS & MS Pro), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Secure Digital (SD) card, xD picture card, SSFDC SmartMedia (SM) card .. etc with the proper PCMCIA adapter.

For customers who live in an area without wired high speed broadband connection, this PCD-TP-110CS PCMCIA CardBus card drives allows you to use a laptop wireless PC card on your desktop computer for wireless mobile broadband connection internet access. Amtron PCD-TP-110CS is recommended for wired and wireless modem PC cards (3G / 3.5G AirCard) such as Verizon / Sierra AirCard, Novatel Merlin, Cingular EDGE, Kyocera Passport, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Netgear, AirPrime, ACS, Fiberlink, SK-Earthlink, Qualcomm, and other wireless PC card modems using CDMA, WCDMA, EDGE, GPRS, GSM, UMTS, HSDPA, EV-DO (EVDO) technology.

[For wireless ExpressCard, please order PCIE-110 (front mounting) or  PCIE-101 (rear mounting).]

External Mounting
If all drives bay of a desktop computer are occupied, this card reader can be used as an external unit since the reader unit is almost fully enclosed by a metal housing and can be connected to the PCI interface circuit board on the motherboard via the supplied UDMA IDE/ATA flat cables (80-wire ribbon cable with 2 ATA connectors) passed through one of the rear expansion slots of the desktop computer. The rear part of the reader unit is not fully enclosed and a small area of the circuit board is exposed to provide access for the IDE/ATA flat cables connecting to the IDE/ATA connectors on the reader unit. However, the supplied flat cables are only 18-inch long which are designed for internal mounting. If longer flat cables are required for external mounting, customers need to purchase two longer UDMA IDE/ATA flat cables (80-wire ribbon cable with 2 ATA connectors) such as the 25-inch flat cables set available at our site.  [Cons for External Mounting: The Card Reader unit is primarily designed for internal mounting, Therefore, the rear part of the reader unit is not fully enclosed by the metal case and a small area of the circuit board is exposed for the IDE flat cables. And, as shown in the picture, the metal case of reader unit is not painted with the same color that matches with the color of the front plate. Thus, for cosmetic reason, the external mounting is not highly recommended unless drives bay is absolutely not available.]


Product Option & Price

  • Amtron PCD-TP-110CS fits in any standard and low-profile desktop computers. [The end bracket (metal back-plate) attached to the blue-color low-profile PCI Interface Card is replaceable (secured with two screws). Both the full-size metal bracket for standard desktop computer and the half-size metal bracket for low profile/ slimline/ small form factor desktop PC are supplied in the package.]

  • The PC Card Reader unit can be mounted in a 3.5" drive bay or a 5.25" drive bay. To mount the Card Reader in the wider 5.25" drive bay, a 5.25" drive bay mounting kit (which is included in the package) is required.  The Card Reader also can be set as a stand-alone external unit.

  • For larger size computer, such as mini-tower, please order the 25-inch cables set.

  • Please read the special note for some slimline / small form factor computers, such as "Dell OptiPlex 755 small form factor".

  • Card Reader front panel (faceplate) color option: Black or Beige.

Please check System Requirements before you purchase this product!

  • For large size computer, such as mini-tower PC, the pair of 18-inch flat cables included in the package are not long enough.  Please purchase a pair of 25-inch flat cables.  [This longer cables set can also be used for external mounting. However, external mounting is not highly recommended due to cosmetic reason.]

  • NOTE: In some slimline / small form factor computers, such as "Dell OptiPlex 755 small form factor", the drive bay space is partially occupied by the computer power supply assembly, the Card Reader unit can not be inserted deep enough to be flush with the computer case surface. In this situation, the Card Reader unit could be mounted externally. However, external mounting is not highly recommended due to cosmetic reason. Please purchase the 25-inch cables set for external installation. 
    [Please check the dimension of the Card Reader unit and the available drive bay space of your small form factor computer, to determine if internal mounting is feasible.]
