How to use my old DAQCard-6062E with a PCMCIA interface on a modern computer?

Go to solution

I have an old DAQCard-6062E (PCMCIA interface) in my lab. I used to plug this DAQCard onto an old laptop computer, where a PCMCIA slot was available on the laptop computer. However, it seems that the PCMCIA slot is no longer available on modern laptop computers.

Is there a specific kind of adapter that I can use to convert this PCMCIA interface to say an USB interface, so that I can still use this DAQCard on a modern computer?


Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Simple, you cannot! (No, none of the PCMCIA adapters is guaranteed to work with reliably emulating a true full-spec PCMCIA, if you find one working, good for you)


Find a laptop that has a PCMCIA port.
