Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR UPDATING COMPUTER CODE USING AN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT INTERFACE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME D'ENREGISTREMENT DE CODE MACHINE AU MOYEN D'UNE INTERFACE A CIRCUIT INTEGRE
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for providing computer code updates through an integrated circuit card (smart card) interface. The smart card interface within a computer control device determines whether the card that is inserted into the smart card interface is either a memory card or a conventional smart card. Once the smart card interface has detected that the memory card has been inserted, the interface requests data from the card. The interface provides the computer code to the memory of the computer controlled device to update the computer code therein.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant d'enregistrer un code machine au moyen d'une interface de carte à circuit intégré (carte à puce). L'interface de carte à puce située au sein d'un dispositif commandé par ordinateur détermine si la carte qui est insérée dans l'interface de carte à puce est une carte mémoire ou une carte à puce traditionnelle. Une fois que l'interface de carte à puce a détecté que la carte mémoire a été insérée, l'interface extrait les données de la carte. L'interface transfère le code machine à la mémoire du dispositif commandé par ordinateur pour y enregistrer le code machine.
