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.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
