'[PIC:] PCMCIA peripheral'

Hi

I want to make a PCMCIA card that will sample values/capture serial data
for my pocket pc.

I am having a huge problem getting information on the PCMCIA interface
and communication specs, the book everyone recommends "Inside PC Card" I
am un able to get hold off because its out of print, and the only copy
our uni library had has gone missing!  (to someone in our department!)

What I was wondering is does anyone have another other suggestions on
good sources of information (free! 0 budget for this).

Someone must of done this before with a PIC, can they give me some
pointers please ;)

Thanks

Alex

PCMCIA System Architecture (Addison Wesley ISBN 0-201-40991-7) has most of what you need - Amazon
still list this.

I plugged +"pcmcia" +"bus specification" into AltaVista and a couple
minutes later I came up with several resources including pinouts and
electrical specs. Here's a couple of them:

www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_PCMCIA.html
www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_Cardbus.html
http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Miniature_Card.html

If you're not planning to make several of these devices, you might be able to
save yourself some time and money by buying a PCMCIA to RS-232 converter.  Then
you can just concentrate on the serial portion of things.

Socket makes several of these devices.  Here's a link to the one that does what
I think you need.

I didn't check, but you'll probably find them cheaper at Amazon or Buy.com.

the cf-bus is very similar (or some) with 16bit pcmcia. the cf is well
documented.

Hi

Thanks for everyones replys, i think i will look into the CF bus, as
there is no reason why i have to use PCMCIA over it (i have both
available too me).  The link to the book, i only checked amazon.co.uk
lesson learnt!  I want to avoid the latency issues of using a serial
port, so i think i will look into the PCMCIA bus and CF bus in more
detail.

Thanks again,

Alex
