Abstract (en)

The present invention discloses an imaging cartridge and a memory chip applied to the imaging box, so as to overcome a disadvantage that when available usage of imaging materials reaches a preset threshold, an existing imaging device may still continue to perform an imaging operation to easily cause a device failure. The memory chip is detachably installable on an imaging box, and the imaging box is detachably installable in the imaging device. The memory chip includes: an interface unit, electrically connecting the memory chip to the imaging device, and receiving an instruction that is sent from the imaging device; a storage unit, storing information related to the imaging box; a service life determining unit, determining, according to the information that is related to the imaging box and that is stored in the storage unit, whether a service life of the imaging box runs out; and an exception processing unit, performing, when the service life determining unit determines that the service life of the imaging box runs out, exception processing according to the instruction sent by the imaging device. By means of the present invention, occurrence of a phenomenon that when imaging materials in an imaging box may run out, a failure occurs in an imaging device due to an empty print can be effectively avoided.
