PCCtest 270/273
16-bit PC Card Socket Tester with 3.3V
and DMA Support

The PCCtest 270 and 273 socket testers provides a quick and easy way of verifying the operation of a host socket. Housed in a type II PC Card, the PCCtest includes software to test a wide variety of socket controllers from TI, Cirrus Logic, Vadem, Ricoh, Omega Micro and VLSI Technology. The PCCtest socket tester verifies all signals on the 16-bit PC Card interface including accurate Vcc and Vpp measurements.

Manufacturers, service centers and developers of PC Card products can benefit from the quick verification of their 16-bit PC Card hosts. How many times have you wondered if the problem you were having was hardware, software or both? A 15-second test by the PCCtest can save hours of debug work by validating the hardware portion of the 16-bit PC Card interface. Some of our PCCtest customers were able to find design errors in products they already had in production.

The PCCtest 270/273 supports testing of Direct Memory Access (DMA), 3.3V and Voltage Sense pins (VS1 and VS2) as defined in the PC Card '95 Standard. The PCCtest 270/273 verifies all data, address and strobe signals at 3.3 or 5.0 volts.

The PCCtest 273 is a special version of the PCCtest 270 that internally grounds CD1- and CD2- for socket controllers that require active card detects prior to slot power-up. All CardBus controllers require that card detects be grounded prior to slot power-up.
