  • Patent number: 10795100
    Abstract: Examples relate to a removable transceiver module that comprises a base frame installable in a rail-pair receptacle that surrounds a first connector in a system board. It further comprises a module base board, a second connector attached thereto and a lever handle pivotally attached to the base frame and coupled to the module base board. The transceiver module is installed in the rail-pair receptacle in response to a lateral movement of the base frame to the receptacle to align the first and second connectors. The lever handle is movable between a closed position to couple the second connector to the first connector and an open position to install the transceiver module into the receptacle. This lever handle determines a vertical move of the module base board between the closed position and the open position.

  • Patent number: 10455741
    Abstract: The present examples include a rack enclosure with perforations formed within vertical rack columns. Front vertical rack columns may include front perforations formed therein. The front perforations may draw air into the rack enclosure and further into a chassis. Side plenums along the side surface of the chassis may consume less space with the use of the front perforations. The space not consumed by the side plenums may be available to accommodate a chassis of a substantial volume. The chassis may expand a substantial width of the rack enclosure to house an enlarged or a maximum number of computing components within the rack enclosure.

  • Patent number: 10356964
    Abstract: Examples described herein include an electromagnetic interference shield. In some examples, the electromagnetic interference shield includes a wall comprised of a conductive material. The wall may have a first surface, a second surface, and a thickness between the first surface and the second surface. The shield may include a rounded opening in the wall that creates an air passageway through the thickness of the wall. The shield may also include a first obstruction in the opening and a second obstruction in the opening. The first obstruction may span across the opening. The second obstruction may span across the opening and intersect the first obstruction. The first obstruction and the second obstruction may be waveguide structures.
