If you are interested to buy a FlashCard, please send me a PM.
The Lynx FlashCard is a development tool. It can hold one game, demo or application.
It is controlled by a Atmel AVR µCom.
The communication with the PC is be done via an RS232 to USB converter. (FTDI)
For the communication you need a PC with Linux/Windows or a Mac with a terminal program.
The data is sent as binaries to the FlashCard.
