SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Duel Systems, a business unit of Methode Electronics, Inc., announces a new addition to its DuelAdapterTM product line with the DuelAdapter Cradle, the ExpressCard to PCMCIA and CardBus adapter. The DuelAdapter Cradle enables users of computers that only have PCMCIA or CardBus slots to use a new ExpressCard device (for memory, audio, video, broadband, etc.) without any need to upgrade their computers.
The DuelAdapter Cradle mechanically and electrically bridges the two formats with no compromise in speed and with “plug-and-play” ease of use. The Cradle seamlessly converts information and transfers data at the full PCMCIA and CardBus transfer rates supported by the computer. Moreover, the Cradle is hot pluggable, and requires no software driver. It is compatible with Windows XPTM, VistaTM, and Mac OS X 10.3.9TM and higher operating systems. The Cradle is FCC, CE, and RoHS compliant.
The DuelAdapter Cradle can be preordered now at the DuelAdapter e-commerce website at www.duel-systemsadapters.com. Standard retail price for the Cradle will be $49.95, but for a limited time, the DuelAdapter Cradle will be offered at $45.95 for advance orders received before July 31, 2007. The DuelAdapter Cradle will also be available through select re-sellers in North America, Europe, and the Far East.
