PC Card Storage Devices
Fields of Applications
Memory Cards are used as universal, flexible and reliable media to exchange data between devices and PCs.
Often there is the need to integrate a Memory Card interface into an existing device. For this purpose CSM offers the DOS-Drive, a universal and mature solution for embedded systems. This product is based on our long standing experience in secure Memory Card applications.
CSM DOS-Drive is used in these fields:
Machine and Plant Construction
Machine setup data, process instructions and control
Trip recorders, passenger counting, traffic light control
Biosignal recorders, reading of therapy data for dialysis devices
Recording of measurement data, e.g. in weighing systems
Universal Data Format for PC Cards
The Microsoft DOS FAT File System is widely-used and supported by all computers running Win-dows.
If an embedded system needs to exchange data with a PC, it must be able to manage the data on the Memory Card in DOS format. The design of the required hard- and software is normally asso-ciated with high engineering costs.
With CSM DOS-Drive a professional and perfect standard product can be used directly. Your final system meets the expected functionality without the expense and risk of an individual system
Robust Storage Medium
As storage media ATA Flash Cards are supported which are perfect for industrial use due to their
reliability and robustness.
For use with DOS-Drive we recommend CSM SuperStore ATA Flash Cards which can be cho-sen in capacities between 32 MB and 2 GB.
