Title
(EN) POWER MANAGEMENT OF A COMPUTER PLUG-IN CARD HAVING A REMOTE DATA LINK
(FR) GESTION DE L'ALIMENTATION D'UNE CARTE ENFICHABLE D'ORDINATEUR DOTEE D'UNE FONCTION DE GESTION D'UNE LIAISON TELEINFORMATIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A computer system (20) includes a computer (22) and a plug-in card (30) having a remote data link (64). The plug-in card (30) draws power from the power source (24) of the computer (22). A status monitor (56) shows the operability of the remote data link (64) and its connection to the plug-in card (30). Power to the plug-in card (30) is controlled responsive to the status monitor (56), so that power to the card (30) is enabled only when the external data link (64) and its connector are operable.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un système informatique (20) qui comporte un ordinateur (22) et une carte enfichable (30) dotée d'une fonction de gestion d'une liaison téléinformatique (64). La carte enfichable (30) est alimentée par la source d'énergie (24) de l'ordinateur (22). Un organe de contrôle d'état (56) indique l'exploitabilité de la liaison téléinformatique (64) et sa connexion à la carte enfichable (30). L'énergie alimentant la carte enfichable (30) est régulée en réponse aux données de l'organe de contrôle (56), de telle sorte que la carte n'est effectivement alimentée que lorsque la liaison téléinformatique externe (64) et son connecteur sont exploitables.
