What can I put in my W540's mini Expresscard slot?

I have a W540. It has an expresscard slot that the specs say is also a smartcard slot. https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/th ... ries/w540/I don't need a smart card (which is just for security as I far as I can tell). Does this double as an expresscard slot? If so, what kind of things are available to expand it? The only thing I can think of offhand that I would use is an HDMI output, if such a thing is available as a smartcard. Google seems to say no.

What do you guys think? What kind of mini expresscards do you use to expand your Thinkpad's features?

A Smartcard slot sits on the right side, near the front, directly under the palmrest.
An Expresscard slot sits on the left side, near the front, directly above the laptop bottom.
You can have none, either or both.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!
