No, they're different.
PC Card (PCMCIA) is connected to the PCI bus; ExpressCard rides both the USB and PCI Express busses (hence the name.)

Also, the formfactor is different - it's not possible to insert an ExpressCard into a PCMCIA slot, or vice-versa.

Thank you! That cleared up my concern when looking at laptop specs.
