Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) cards
are rugged, credit card-sized, user-installable devices.
You can use PCMCIA memory cards in the same way as a diskette, but you
can store much larger amounts of data on a PCMCIA memory card.
PCMCIA serial and modem cards provide a convienient way to add an RS-232
interface or data/fax modem functionality to your workstation.
PCMCIA cards are available from many vendors. Check with your SunServiceSM provider or the PCMCIA card vendor
to determine if a device is compatible with your workstation.
This appendix contains the following sections:
