Description

  • The invention relates to a chip module, with a circuit board, which is set up in particular for receiving a data memory for storing information, and with an energy store, which is set up to supply energy to the data memory. Furthermore, the invention relates to a printer cartridge with such a chip module.
  • A printer cartridge for a laser printer or an inkjet printer is usually equipped with a chip module that communicates with the printer during operation. On the chip module data are stored and read in a data memory. For example, the memories are Non-Volatile Random Access Memory (NVRAM) such as FERAM (Ferro Electric Random Access Memory).
  • FERAM chips are characterized by high write performance, low power consumption and fast write access. However, FERAM chips are only limited available and high priced.
  • The use of FERAM chips in printer cartridges also has the disadvantage that a printer designed for the use of FERAM chips may not be suitable for the use of conventional non-volatile data memories, such as flash memories or EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) is suitable. Thus, flash memory and EEPROM are available in large quantities and inexpensive to procure. However, flash memory and EEPROM have lower write power and higher power consumption compared to FERAM chips. When used with a printer designed to use FERAM chips, the use of flash-memory or EEPROM printer cartridges may result in incomplete read and / or write access through the printer, as the printer does not maintain its power supply long enough to power the memory chip , This may result in a printer cartridge that is functional in itself being recognized as defective by the printer and can not be used as intended.
  • For this purpose, it is known to provide memory chips with a self-sufficient by the printer power supply to ensure the energy supply of compared to FERAM chips carrier storage for the duration of the entire read and / or write access of a printer, so that a complete exchange of data takes place.
  • For example, it is known to mount a battery with a metal clip or the like on a board of a chip module of a printer cartridge. However, it is disadvantageous that the size of the board is increased so that an insertion of the print cartridge in a printer may no longer be possible. In addition, such a clamp connection by a metal clip is susceptible to interruptions of the contact, so that the power supply can not be reliably guaranteed.
  • Based on the above-described prior art, the invention is based on the technical problem to provide a chip module and a printer cartridge, which the disadvantages described above do not or at least to a lesser extent and in particular allow a reliable power supply of memory chips of different power classes.

In this way, a reliable power supply of a data storage can be ensured without the space of the board is increased in itself. For example, the energy store may be arranged at a distance from the board.
