body, hardware, standard (PCMCIA, or "PC Card") An
international trade association and the standards they have
developed for devicies, such as modems and external harddisk drives, that can be plugged into notebook computers.
A PCMCIA card is about the size of a credit card.
For some unfathomable reason, around 1995(?) they decided to
rename PCMCIA cards "PC Cards", perhaps to encourage sales to
confused purchasers.
