Abstract

See full text

An electronic imaging apparatus is convenient to operate and can be easily configured according to interface, communication, and memory capacity requirements. The electronic imaging apparatus is constructed so that the imaging device, processing circuit, memory circuit, and central processing unit (CPU) are located within a main housing. The main housing includes an opening for receiving a plurality of PC cards of different types including memory cards and I/O cards. Accordingly, PC cards can be chosen and mounted in the opening to provide the electronic imaging apparatus with desired capacities and capabilities. Within the opening are a plurality of connection terminals that electrically connect to the PC cards. Each connection terminal can receive the different types of PC cards. The imaging device, processing circuit, memory circuit, CPU and each of the plurality of connection terminals are connected to a data bus. The CPU controls the activation of the processing circuit as well as the transfer of information to and from the PC cards connected to the bus via the connection terminals. The electronic imaging apparatus can further include a switching device for specifying information to the CPU about a PC card connected to the bus.
