ECA16 Express card to PCMCIA adapter using the VMB5000
Extra power for the only reliable solution!
ExpressCards often have high power requirements. The PCMCIA port is capable of supplying the required power, but the ECA16 is the only adapter available to supply enough power to guarantee the performance of your ExpressCard. By drawing the full 5V which is only available to 16-bit PC card solutions, you can be sure that your ExpressCard won't suffer the performance problems that are associated with the lower power 32-bit adapter interface.
The ECA16 uses Elan's VMB5000 chipset and draws only minimal power for itself - another advantage of the 16-bit solution.
Using USB2 technology, the ECA16 supports high speed applications beyond 3G (including HSDPA and HSUPA ExpressCards).
The ECA16 is designed to fit snugly into your PC card slot, with only a minimal protrusion outside of your laptop.
