Abstract

A circuit device 2 has about 8K bits of nonvolatile storage which is writeable to carry personal information, such as medical information that would be required for treating an unconscious accident victim. This amount of storage corresponds to several average size typed paragraphs and thus can be more comprehensive than the usual medical identification tags.
