11206Re: Can I use a 256 MB CF card for unslinging to?
- Jan 31, 2006If the card-reader is not an all-in-one device (a device which reads
many different types of cards) but has only one slot for the CF cards,
than it should be no problem.
I never tested suvh solution, but in my opinion it should work fine.
What do you intend to do with the FTDI USB device interface unit? Do
you want to drive a FPGA and realize a multiprocessor NSLU2?
