The Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) created the PCMCIA Card (or PC Card) in 1990. The PCMCIA standard was originally designed to add memory to PCs, but it was quickly revised to include support for more emerging technologies like fax, modem, LAN and other memory devices. It was later replaced by the ExpressCard.
The original (Type 1) specification featured a 16-bit interface. Later types featured 16- or 32-bit interfaces. Although a 16-bit PCMCIA slot supports only 16-bit PCMCIA Cards, most newer slots accept both 16- and 32-bit versions.
