  • Patent number: 11150698
    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: 11099613
    Abstract: The front of a rack-mounted 2RU (Rack Unit) chassis includes bays that receive replaceable components, such as storage drives. Two rear slots of such chassis may each receive 1RU servers that couple to a chassis midplane via interposers. Administration of such 2RU chassis is simplified when a 1 RU server can be installed identically in the top or bottom chassis slot. Embodiments provide this capability while avoiding locating interposers along the center of the midplane. A lower guide routes a floating interposer of the server to lower midplane connectors as the server is inserted in the lower slot. An upper guide routes the floating interposer to upper midplane connectors as the server is inserted in the upper slot. The floating interposer moves up and down based vertical travel of guidewheels that protrude from the server and are routed by the guides as the server is inserted in a slot.
