  • Patent number: 11507140
    Abstract: A docking station according to embodiments provides power to an Information Handling System (IHS) coupled to the docking station. The docking station includes a first power circuit supporting a first power output according to a power delivery protocol limited to a first power level. The docking station also includes a second power circuit supporting a second power output for providing the input power of the docking station to the IHS. A controller of the docking station determines whether the IHS requires power using the power delivery protocol and selects the operation of the first or second power circuit. The docking station may support dual of such selectable power pathways using a docking cable joined from two individual cables, where each cable provides a separate power and/or data coupling. The docking station thus supports powering devices according to a power delivery protocol or using the input power to the docking station.

  • Patent number: 11487334
    Abstract: Delivery of power to one or more servers is controlled by energizing a control circuit and transmitting, from the control circuit to a first power source, a first signal indicating that the control circuit is energized. After transmitting the first signal indicating that the control circuit is energized, the control circuit receives a second signal indicating that the first power source is ready to provide power. The control circuit also receives, from a server, a third signal indicating that the server is energized. Having received the second signal indicating that the first power source is ready to provide power and the third signal indicating that the server is energized, the control circuit transmit to the server a fourth signal indicating that the server may start receiving power from the first power source.
