    Personal Computer Memory Card International Association was organized in 1989 to promote standards for credit card-size devices that can fit in a portable computer. Originally designed as a storage device, it later expanded to other applications such as modems and networking. For audio and video users, the technology has been extended to include input/output devices. PCMCIA cards come in the same rectangular size, but differ in thickness according to application.
