Well it's some test gear that uses a PCMCIA Bus to talk to a 25 Way serial port, I think, now the issue I think is how to communicate between PCMCIA and the real world. Another lesson use the latest port to ensure continued support, I think not! If only they had the foresight to use the serial port on the PIC...
You used to be able to get PCMCIA expansion cards for desktop machines. It's a little inconvenient for most of them since the slot ends up at the rear of the machine (though I have seen some with a separate drive bay adapter to plug the card into).
I doubt you can find them easily new now - but perhaps on e-bay.
PCMCIA was the organization that defined the interface (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association). The interface became better known as PC Card.
you can find PC Card readers on Amazon and there is a useful set of links on the Wiki page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC_Card
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
