FAREHAM, UK - Even prior to launch, Elan Digital's U132 USB to PCMCIA Cardbus adapter had back orders which exceeded expectations. Elan Digital, the interface specialists, had already identified a requirement for the adapter because of the lack of PCMCIA slots in the latest notebook PCs. They specifically designed the U132 adapter to resolve the problem by simply plugging the adapter straight into the USB port, enabling laptop users anywhere in the world to access the internet, even in the most remote areas.

Now just launched, the Elan U132 unit provides a unique solution for users of PCMCIA 3G modem cards who need to connect their card via the USB port on their computer.

Other applications for the U132 are enabling 3G wireless connection to desktops or workstation PCs. Embedded applications include vending machines, electronic billboards which can be updated or interrogated remotely. In fact, any 'remote' equipment that requires wireless communication for updating data or monitoring can be addressed by plugging in a U132 adapter and 3G modem card.

Installation of the U132 is extremely simple and involves only the loading of the Elan software, plugging in the adapter to the USB port and inserting the 3G card. A high speed connection can then be established via standard connection wizards. Power is supplied via the USB port.

The device has worldwide application and supports a growing range of currently available 3G cards. The list of supported cards is extending and is constantly updated on the Elan Digital website. To see the latest cards on the list visit
