Title: Memory module controlling system

Abstract: A memory module controlling system. The controlling system has a multiplexer, an automatic detector and a terminal device. The system has several slots with each slot having a signaling line to the automatic detector so that the presence or absence of a memory module in each slot can be determined. The automatic detector gathers all the signals from the slots and is able to relay a control signal to the multiplexer. The signal output terminal of each slot is coupled to the input terminals of the multiplexer, and the output terminal of the multiplexer is coupled to the terminal device. As soon as the multiplexer receives a control signal regarding the state of the memory slots from the automatic detector, one of the input terminals of the multiplexer automatically connects to its output terminal. Hence, the output signal from the last memory-plugged slot is connected to the terminal device, thereby forming a complete data and clock pulse transmission channel.
