DuelAdapter ExpressCard 34 to PCMCIA PC Card and CardBus Read-Writer
Duel Systems has notified us of the DuelAdapter's End Of Life (EOL) status. The product is still available in limited quantities, and Duel Systems will honor warranties. There will NOT be driver updates to support Mac OS X 10.6 or above, nor support for Windows 7 or Vista/7 64-bit editions. Please bear this in mind when purchasing this item.
See our new product: ExpressCard 34 to PCMCIA PC CardBus 16/32-bit Read-Writer Express2PCC as a replacement for the DuelAdapter.
The ExpressCard to PCMCIA PC Card and CardBus Read-Writer DuelAdapter™ is designed to connect the new generation of ExpressCard equipped laptops with legacy PCMCIA 32-Bit PC CardBus and 16-Bit PC Cards. This cross-platform device seamlessly converts data at the highest throughput speed from PC Cards designed for cellular broadband, wireless networking, video, audio and memory expansion to the new ExpressCard format.
Using special electronics to convert PCMCIA PC Card input to an ExpressCard compatible signal, the adapter can reach transfer rates up to the full 2.5Gbit/sec supported by the ExpressCard interface--five times faster than USB 2.0. The adapter works with ExpressCard equipped laptops or desktops running Windows XP and Mac OS X operating systems. Installation is a snap and the DuelAdapter™ has been tested with a wide range of existing PC Cards including: Panasonic P2 cards, and 3G wireless cards from Sprint, Cingular, T-Mobile, and Verizon. If the drivers exist on a supported platform for a specific PC Card, then it should work without any issues. DuelAdapter™ comes with a one year limited warranty. Please check the Unsupported Systems List before purchasing.
