このように、本実施例のRAMカードにおいては、その電池ホルダ3が矢印A方向に沿って収納部4から引き出される引き出し動作の際、また、これとは逆に、電池ホルダ3が収納部4に収納される差し込み動作の際には、第3図(a),(b)に示すように、両電池7,8の外周部が正電極端子5に摺接することになり、負電極端子6の屈曲部6aには主電池7および予備電池8の上面部がそれぞれ順次摺接することになる。 Thus, in the RAM card of the present embodiment, during the withdrawal operation of the battery holder 3 is drawn out from the accommodating portion 4 along the arrow A direction, on the contrary, the battery holder 3 accommodating portion 4 during insertion operation is housed in the FIG. 3 (a), (b), the results in the outer peripheral portion of both cell 7,8 is in sliding contact with the positive electrode terminal 5, the negative electrode terminal 6 upper surface of the main to the bent portion 6a battery 7 and the reserve battery 8 comes into contact successively sliding each. さらに、電池ホルダ3 Furthermore, the battery holder 3
が、第2図(a)に示すように、ICモジュール1の収納部4に対して完全に収納された状態では、負電極端子6 But, as shown in FIG. 2 (a), when being completely accommodated against housing section 4 of the IC module 1, the negative electrode terminal 6
の屈曲部6aが主電池7の上面部にのみ接触していることになる。 So that the bent portion 6a of contacts only the upper surface portion of the main battery 7.

つぎに、上記構成とされたRAMカードにおける電池交換時の動作について説明する。 Next, the operation of replacing the battery in the RAM card having the structure.

まず、第1図に示すように、電池ホルダ3がICモジュール1の収納部4に対して矢印B方向に差し込まれて収納された通常の使用状態では、第2図(a),(b)に示すように、主電池7および予備電池8それぞれがともに正電極端子5に接触する一方、負電極端子6には主電池7のみが接触しているので、記憶データの保持に必要な所定電圧の電源は主電池7から供給される。 First, as shown in FIG. 1, in the normal use state of being housed is inserted in the direction of arrow B battery holder 3 against the housing portion 4 of the IC module 1, FIG. 2 (a), (b) as shown in, the main one, each cell 7 and the reserve battery 8 together in contact with the positive electrode terminal 5, only the main battery 7 to the negative electrode terminal 6 are in contact, a predetermined voltage required to hold the storage data the power supplied from the main battery 7.

一方、主電池7の消耗に伴う電池交換時には,第2図(a),(b)に示す状態にある電池ホルダ3を、第4 On the other hand, when replacing the battery due to exhaustion of the main battery 7, FIG. 2 (a), the battery holder 3 in the state shown in (b), 4
図(a),(b)に示すように、主電池7を両電極端子 Figure (a), (b), the main battery 7 both electrode terminals
5,6の手前位置まで引き出したうえで、この主電池7を取り外す。 After having pulled out to the front position of the 5,6, removing this main battery 7. したがって、この状態では正電極端子5が予備電池8の外周部のみに接触する一方、負電極端子6の屈曲部6aが予備電池8の上面部のみに接触することになるので、記憶データの保持に必要な所定電圧の電源は予備電池8から供給されることになる。 Thus, since in this state the positive electrode terminal 5 while contacting only the outer peripheral portion of the reserve battery 8, so that the bent portion 6a of the negative electrode terminal 6 contacts only the upper surface portion of the reserve battery 8, hold stored data supply of a predetermined voltage required to would be supplied from the reserve battery 8. なお、この際、電池ホルダ3が第4図(a),(b)に示す状態に引き出されるとき、第3図(a),(b)に示すように、正電極端子5および負電極端子6のそれぞれは主電池7が接触している段階から予備電池8に接触しているので、主電池7から予備電池8への電源切り換え時に電源供給が途切れることがなく、記憶データの一部消失やいわゆるデータバケの発生というような不都合が生じることはない。 At this time, when the battery holder 3 4 (a), to be drawn to the state shown in (b), 3 (a), (b), the positive electrode terminal 5 and negative electrode terminal since 6 each are in contact with the additional battery 8 the step of the main battery 7 is in contact, the main battery 7 without power supply is interrupted when the power is switched to the backup battery 8 from partially lost of stored data and does not occur inconvenience such as that the occurrence of the so-called Detabake.

そして、予備電池8による電源供給が行われている間に、主電池7が消耗したものから新たなものに交換され、新たな主電池7を保持した電池ホルダ3が、第1図および第2図(a),(b)に示すように、ICモジュール1の収納部4に対して完全に差し込まれて収納されることにより、この主電池7からの電源供給が再開される。 Then, while the power supply by the reserve battery 8 is being performed, the main battery 7 is replaced with a new from those depleted, the battery holder 3 holding a new main battery 7, FIG. 1 and the second Figure (a), (b), the by being accommodated fully seated against the housing portion 4 of the IC module 1, the power supply from the main battery 7 is resumed. なお、この際も、電池ホルダ3が、第4図(a), Also at this time, the battery holder 3, 4 (a),
(b)の状態から第3図(a),(b)を経て、第2図電池(b)の状態へと差し込まれることによって予備電池8から主電池7への電源切り換えが行われるので、前記同様、電源切り換え時に電源供給が途切れることはない。 Figure 3 from the state of (b) (a), through (b), the power supply is switched to the main battery 7 is performed from the reserve battery 8 by being plugged into the state of FIG. 2 battery (b), the same, the power supply will not be interrupted when the power is switched.

ところで、以上説明した予備電池8は主電池7の交換に要する極めて短時間(数分間程度)のみ電源を供給するものであるからその電源容量は小さくても十分であり、 However, reserve battery 8 described above the power capacity since it is intended to supply power only a very short time (several minutes) required to exchange the main battery 7 is also small enough,
また、その大きさも主電池7の1/2から1/4程度あれば十分である。 Further, it is sufficient 1/2 degree 1/4 of its magnitude also the main battery 7. ちなみに、通常使用されている主電池7の電源容量は3Vであり、その外直径は25mmである。 Incidentally, the power supply capacity of the main battery 7 that is normally used is 3V, an outer diameter of 25 mm.

〔発明の効果〕 〔Effect of the invention〕

以上説明したように、この発明に係るICカードによれば、その電池ホルダに主電池と予備電池とを保持させるとともに、主電池の交換に伴う電池ホルダの引き出し動作によって予備電池から電源供給が行われるように構成しているので、主電池の交換にあたって記憶データを保持する電源供給が途切れることがない。 As described above, according to the IC card according to the present invention, together to hold the main battery and the backup battery to the battery holder, the power supply line from the spare battery by withdrawal operation of the battery holder with the replacement of the main battery since configured to divide, the power supply is not interrupted to retain stored data when exchange of the main battery. したがって、従来例のように、外部から別の電源装置による電源供給を行う必要がなく、これらの接続に伴うノイズや電圧値設定の誤りなどによる記憶データの消失や変化の発生が確実に防止できるという効果がある。 Therefore, unlike the conventional examples, it is not necessary to perform the power supply according to another power supply from the outside, the occurrence of loss or change of the stored data due to errors of noise or voltage value setting associated with these connections can be reliably prevented there is an effect that.
