Abstract

A Miniature Card specification was released February of 1996. The Miniature Card is a memory- only expansion card that satisfies the needs for many markets including Audio, Digital Film, Wireless, and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). Miniature Card provides a high performance memory bus capable of handling applications that require high speed flash disk drives, execute in place (XIP) memory, DRAM expansion, or ROM applications. Currently, Miniature Card can accommodate up to 64-Megabytes of flash, DRAM, or ROM memory. Miniature Card has a small form factor i.e. one- fourth the size of PCMCIA. It has a pinless connector suited for consumer usage. The Miniature Card specification backed by Intel and AMD has gained support by a large number of device manufactures.
