part of your design will be the interface with teh PCMCIA (CF) host controller on the PC or the handheld.
Lot's of information on this can be found in the CF standard
available on www.comp@ctflash.org

CF interface uses ATA. So to hook CF to a PIC Micro, you need to do implement the ATA/IDE port. For slow speed a software level drive or a simple 8255 will do the job. For high speed you need DMA. Or so, you have to define a file system for the CF disk. Try www.sandisk.com.
