FRITZ!Card Classic


The FRITZ!Card Classic was the first ISDN card using the name FRITZ!Card, introduced in early 1996. The PCB shows the label AVM ISDN-Controller A1 3.0 FC. It used a jumper to select the I/O adress. With the introduction of the jumperless FRITZ!Card PnP it was renamed from FRITZ!Card to FRITZ!Card Classic.
