DuelAdapter preserves PC Cards in ExpressCard era

DuelAdapter ExpressCard

Duel Systems recently began shipping its unique DuelAdapter. Simply designed as a way to use PC Card devices in newer portables, the adapter plugs into either an ExpressCard 34 or 54 slot and treats externally connected PC Cards as though they were native devices. Most any 16- or 32-bit card will work as though it were a native device (including EDGE and EVDO mobile Internet cards) and will run at full speed due to the ExpressCard bus, the company says.

The adapter installs on any ExpressCard-equipped computer using Mac OS X 10.4.8 or Windows XP and sells today for $99. A secondary adapter is also available for reading CompactFlash, SD, and other flash memory formats. [via Engadget]
