Title
(EN) MICRO PERSONAL DIGITAL ASSISTANT
(FR) ASSISTANT NUMERIQUE PERSONNEL DE FORMAT TENANT DANS LA MAIN
Abstract
(EN)
A personal digital assistant module (10) with a local CPU (11), memory (13), and I/O interface (16) has a host interface (29) comprising a bus (26) connected to the local CPU (11) and a connector at a surface of the personal digital assistant (10) for interfacing to a bus connector of a host general-purpose computer (66), providing direct bus communication between the personal digital assistant (10) and the host general-purpose computer (66). In an embodiment, the personal digital assistant (10) also has a means for storing a security code. The personal digital assistant (10) according to the invention forms a host/satellite combination with a host computer (66) having a docking bay, wherein upon docking a docking protocol controls access by the host (66) to memory (13) of the personal digital assistant (10) based on one or more passwords provided by a user to the host (66). In another embodiment the personal digital assistant (10) also has an expansion port (20) connected to the local CPU (11), and expansion peripheral devices may be connected and operated through the expansion port (20).

Cette invention se rapporte à un module d'assistant numérique personnel (10) avec unité centrale locale (11), mémoire (13), et interface E/S (16), ce module comprenant une interface hôte (29) comportant un bus (26) connecté à l'unité centrale locale (11) et un connecteur à une surface de l'assistant numérique personnel (10) pour établir une interface avec un connecteur de bus d'un ordinateur hôte universel (66), afin d'assurer une communication par bus directe entre l'assistant numérique personnel (10) et l'ordinateur hôte universel (66). Dans un premier mode de réalisation, cet assistant numérique personnel (10) comprend également un moyen pour stocker un code de sécurité. Cet assistant numérique personnel (10) forme une combinaison hôte/satellite avec un ordinateur hôte (66) ayant un logement d'accueil de sorte que, lors d'une connection dans ce logement d'accueil, un protocole d'accueil commande l'accès par l'ordinateur hôte (66) à la mémoire (13) de l'assistant numérique personnel (10) sur la base d'un ou de plusieurs mots de passe fournis par l'utilisateur à l'ordinateur hôte (66). Dans un deuxième mode de réalisation, l'assistant numérique personnel (10) comporte également un port d'extension (20) connecté à l'unité centrale locale (11), et des périphériques d'extension peuvent être connectés et exploités par l'intermédiaire de ce port d'extension (20).
