PATS KEY question

Is the PATS security system internal or external to the ECU. I'm curious because my ignition cylinders stuck and I need to swap the steering column the same time. Wondering if I have to swap the ECU at the same time so I don't have to keep the old key.

all you have to is pull the little chip thing out of the old key and put it in the new key

What I'm curious about is what recognizes the chip is it the tone ring on the steering column or is it the ECU that recognizes the frequency?

The ECU recognizes the key.
