802.11a 16 bit PCMCIA Card?

Has anyone seen/heard of a company offering such an animal? I realize
that with the higher rates that 802.11a is capable of (54+ Mbps) it
may seem a waste using a 16 bit card (probably max real world of 20
Mbps). However, I have a couple of legacy or speciality devices that
do not support 32bit Cardbus and 802.11a would still be desirable
because of much less interference and a better than 'b' transfer
rate. Also while, in theory, the 16bit PCMCIA could be quite a
bottleneck; real world transfer rates for 802.11a of more like 20 Mbps
would like make it much less so.
