Communications card with integral transmission media line adaptor

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #5660568.

A communications card provides an electronic interface between a host computer and a transmission media line. The communications card includes a releasable adaptor which interconnects an electrical connector of the transmission media line to the communications card when in use. In a first attachment position, which may be used as a storage position, the adaptor integrates into the overall configuration of the communication card to present a configuration that conforms with PCMCIA communication card architecture. For certain PCMCIA socket configurations, this integrated attachment position may also be used as an operational position. In a second attachment position, the adaptor forms an extension of the communications card, extending away from the computer socket to accommodate more restrictive socket configurations. The communications card also includes an optional connector terminal to permit connection to an electrical media line connector of a second type.
