For each delivery, RAMiX fully tests both the base PMC230A and PCMCIA card to ensure fault free, immediate operation. A software license is included with each PCMCIA card purchased.

As a rapidly expanding technology, PCMCIA products have a very fast evolutionary period. RAMiX is continuously testing PCMCIA product, evolutionary changes from the PCMCIA manufacturer are immediately incorporated into the relevant software driver. RAMiX policy is to maintain full backward compatibility, removing any requirement to maintain multiple configurations.
