Question Can a PCMCIA card have a RAM chip?

Bought a laptop but I see both the RAM slots occupied by RAM. Now, I have 1 extra RAM available, DDR type. Is there anything that can be done, to use the same. My laptop has a Type-II compatible PCMCIA slot. Thus, was wondering whether there's some hardware card that can be inserted into this slot alongwith my available RAM.
Thanks beforehand,

I thought this was pretty straight-forward problem and there should be an available solution. However, yet to find one. On one hand I get to find whole lot of PCMCIA cards with various parameters like FLASH RAM, ROM, etc., but does anyone has any idea what's the exact type of card I'll require - where the extra RAM chip I have fits in and thus bang - I put it into the PCMCIA slot and my entire notebook registers a jump in over-all RAM availability?
