SDC-PC22AG

802.11a/g Compact Flash Card with Integrated Antenna

*The SDC-PC22AG has reached end of production and is only available on a limited basis.

The SDC-PC22AG card provides all key Summit hardware and software capabilities in a PC Card (PCMCIA) form factor. This dual-band radio card operates in both the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands, supporting IEEE 802.11a (5 GHz) as well as 802.11b and 802.11g (2.4 GHz). The SDC-PC22AG card is ideal for use in any business-critical mobile device with an external PCMCIA or Cardbus slot.

Please review the below data sheets for complete device specifications.
