  • Patent number: 6856509
    Abstract: A cartridge assembly of water cooled radiator is disclosed. The cartridge assembly can be installed in a computer through the standard drive bay, which includes a booster pump (30) and a water tank (20), interconnected by circulation piping (32). The circulation piping (32) is formed by an intake pipe (34) and a return pipe (36). A transparent window (14) is opened up at the front of face panel (102) for visually checking the water level in the water tank (20). This cartridge design of the water cooled radiator has the advantages of safe usage, harmonious design, and easy operability. For refilling the water tank (20), a design is used employing a lock-and-release mechanism, such that when pressure is applied on the push button (104), the water tank (20) and the face panel (102) will be forced out slightly relative to the immovable shell (10).

  • Patent number: 6847873
    Abstract: A driver information feedback and display system is disclosed. The architecture of the system includes a controller (30), a channel/window manager (10), and front and rear image capture units (11-13). The system can be further incorporated with a speed recorder (40), a backing sensor (50), or a GPS unit (60). When a vehicle enters an intersection from a narrow alley, the left and right image capture units (11,12) installed at the nose of the vehicle will be activated for scanning road conditions on the main road in both directions, thereby eliminating the need for the driver to strain to see the traffic situation or pulling out the car half way. The speed recorder (40) can be used for detection of low speed and activation of left and right image capture units (11, 12). The present system can effectively minimize the chance of vehicle collisions.

  • Patent number: 6841191
    Abstract: A fabricating method and apparatus of an zinc phosphate coating for a varistor has a insulation formed on a surface of a body which does not include two opposite ends of the body formed two outer terminals. The insulation has anti-etch feature for the electrolyte, so that the exposed surface of the body prevents to be etched and to be electroplated a metal material on it. Therefore the varistor has a great fabricating yield and the great shape after electroplating the two outer terminals step.

  • Patent number: 6837373
    Abstract: A tool suspension device for pliers has a suspension board and a bracket. The suspension board has a front, a rear, a clip and a removable locking stub. The clip is mounted on the rear of the suspension board. The removable locking stub is attached to the front of the suspension board. The bracket is mounted on the front of the suspension board and has a U-shaped frame and clamping arms inside the frame. A tool slot is defined vertically through the frame and is adapted to hold a tool that is positioned head down. The removable locking stub prevents upward movement of the tool to prevent the tool from being easily pulled out of the tool slot to steal. The clip is used to hang the tool suspension device on a person's belt. Therefore, the tool suspension device is burglarproof and double-duty.

  • Patent number: 6832817
    Abstract: A ball chair with a securing device has a seat (10) with a backrest (14), a ball-shaped cushion (20), a guard rod (30) holding the ball-shaped cushion (20) with the backrest (14), multiple strengthening blocks (40) attached under the seat (10), and multiple legs attached to the seat (10) by the multiple strengthening blocks (40). Each strengthening block (40) is non-hollow to provide an anti-crack efficiency to joints connected to the legs. Additionally, a cone-shaped post is clamped between one strengthening block (40) and one corresponding leg to adjust a total height of the ball chair.

  • Patent number: 6833877
    Abstract: The present invention has multiple AV/S terminals, an RF modulator, a S/AV signal converter and multiple switches. The switches connect the AV/S terminals with the RF outputs to allow the AV/S signal from the special AV/S terminal input into the RF modulator to be converted to an RF-signal input to the ANT terminal of the TV. Besides, the present invention further has an ANT input with an electronic switch and a detecting unit having a driver, which decides whether the electronic switch turns on. If the detecting unit detects no AV-signal or S-signal input from the AV/S terminals, the detecting unit first cuts off the power to the RF modulator and then makes the electronic switch turn on. The RF-signal from the ANT input is output to the RF output.

  • Patent number: 6830496
    Abstract: A light emitting diode device comprises a copper substrate having multiple light emitting regions, multiple dies and encapsulation. Each light emitting region has a die pad and at least one electrode connected together and encapsulant covering the light emitting region. The dies are respectively mounted on the die pads and are wire bonded to the corresponding electrode or electrodes. A step defining a gap is applied to the substrate to form multiple light emitting regions, and each light emitting region has a die pad and electrodes. Therefore, the present invention can simplify the steps for fabricating die pad and electrodes to increase the production rate of LED devices or LED display modules.

  • Patent number: 6804859
    Abstract: A securing device includes a body adapted to securely connect to the primary plate and two arms vertically extending out from two opposite ends of the body. Each of the arms has an assembly hole to adapt to align with opposite ends of a tubular connector of the primary plate so that when the shaft extends into the tubular tube, the two arms are secured to the shaft. When a radial force is acting on the shaft, the force is compromised by the two arms of the securing device such that damping of the screen is minimized.
