PCMCIA Hardware Supported by NetBSD

Machine-independent PCMCIA drivers

The following devices (driver name in parentheses) are supported by machine-independent PCMCIA drivers. If you do not see your device listed here, check your platform's page; there may not yet be a machine-independent driver for your device.

Alternatively, it may be the case that your device is compatible with one listed here, or your device may not be listed due to an oversight. If you are unsure, please boot a -current kernel or send mail to .

Please note that these pages reflect the state of NetBSD-current. To check the supported hardware list for a specific release of NetBSD, check that release's installation notes.
