ARS Technologies Inc. expanded its SSI2 line of products to include the SSI2_Host_CB product.

San Diego based hardware and software manufacturer ARS Technologies, Inc. expanded its SSI2 line of products to include the SSI2_Host_CB product.

Peripheral cards based on a variety of computer system buses increase the functionality and add features in the standard computer systems.

The SSI2_Host_CB product allows customers to use:

  • ISA,
  • PCI,
  • and, PCMCIA

bus peripheral cards on notebook computers, which are equipped with a CardBus slot.

The ISA bus has disappeared from the mainstream computer systems sold today. However ISA bus peripheral cards are still developed and used in the embedded, industrial, medical, scientific and military markets. Likewise, there is a large area of applications that rely on previously purchased and/or custom programmed ISA bus peripheral cards.

These users still want to use ISA bus peripheral cards on the modern computer hardware and on modern operating systems.
ARS Technologies' SSI2_ISA product, together with the SSI2_Host_CB product allows continued use of ISA bus peripheral cards on notebook computers, which are equipped with a CardBus slot.

The PCI bus is available on desktop computer systems and has been the mainstream computer peripheral. However, manufacturing production of notebooks surpasses desktop computer manufacturing numbers. Yet, these notebook systems do not have PCI bus peripheral.
ARS Technologies' SSI2_PCI product, together with the SSI2_Host_CB product allows continued use of PCI bus peripheral cards on notebook computers, which are equipped with a CardBus slot.

Some modern notebook computers, which are equipped with a CardBus slot do not support 16bit 'PCCard' type PCMCIA cards.
ARS Technologies SSI2_PCMCIA product , together with the SSI2_Host_CB product permits continued use of PCMCIA bus peripheral on notebook computers, which are equipped with a CardBus slot.
