Westborough, Mass.--Sept. 19, 1997--Electronic Designs Inc. (EDI; Westborough) announced a new generation of Linear Flash PC (PCMCIA) Cards.
EDI's new product series combines the recently announced multiple-bit-per-cell Flash memory technology, StrataFlash, from Intel Corp. (Santa Clara, Calif.), and a new addressing method developed by EDI. Until today, Linear Flash cards have been limited to 64 Mbytes due to the number of addressing lines available in the PCMCIA interface. EDI's innovative method of expanding card capacities, through the use of a paging mechanism, allows densities beyond this 64 Mbyte barrier. EDI's new high density Linear Flash PC-Card product family is available in densities from 16 Mbyte to 80 Mbyte in PC-Card standard Type II packaging.
EDI's Linear Flash cards are ideal for portable data collection systems, battery operated equipment, medical instrumentation, GPS systems, printers, and Datacom/Telecom systems.
EDI designs, manufactures, and markets semiconductor memory and flat panel display products for OEMs in the global commercial, industrial, and military markets, particularly telecommunications, data communications, and avionics.
