PCMCIA interface with Processor

    I am looking for a PCMCIA interface to be included for the processor
    which does not have one. To include that, I am looking for some FPGA
    solution to take up that role.
    Can I directly connect FPGA output to PCMCIA connector or any
    transceivers are required in between. Is level translator required in

    Any applications notes corrresponding to it?

    Thanks and regards

    PCMCIA is 5V nominal, Cardbus is 3.3V.
    Depending on the processor, little more than some glue logic might be needed.

    Does your processor have a PCI bus? If so, use a PCI-to-Cardbus
    interface chip from TI (or other vendors). The chips also support
    the 16-bit PC Card mode (PCMCIA).
    Yes. That's one of the many reasons you're better off with a dedicated
    interface chip.
