  • Publication number: 20140112522
    Abstract: A mounting apparatus for an audio module includes an enclosure base and an enclosure cover. The audio module is pivotally mounted in the enclosure base. A first rotating rod is positioned on the sides of the audio module. An elastic member is mounted on and a plurality of first teeth protrude from one side of the first rotating rod. A gear is pivotally mounted in the enclosure base. A plurality of second teeth protrude from the gear corresponding to the plurality of first teeth. The elastic member is elastically deformed in its original state, and the audio module is received in the enclosure base. When the enclosure cover is rotated away from the enclosure base, the elastic member rotates the first rotating rod, the first rotating rod rotates the gear, and the audio module extends to outside of the enclosure base.

  • Publication number: 20140104774
    Abstract: A notebook computer comprises a base and a screen pivotally attached to the base. A groove is defined in the base for mounting an audio module. The audio module is pivotally mounted in the groove by a resilient member and configured to receive or send audio signals for users. The screen is rotatable between a closed position, where the screen covers the base module; and an open position, where the screen departs from the base module. When the screen is in the closed position, the audio module is in a first position, where the audio module is fully received in the groove, and the resilient member is compressed by the screen. When the screen is in the open position, the audio module is rotated to a second position, where the audio module protrudes out from the groove and the resilient member is released.

  • Publication number: 20140102923
    Abstract: A computer enclosure includes an enclosure base, an enclosure cover, two pivoting rods or axles, two height-adjusting feet, pushing members, and two connecting poles. The enclosure cover pivots on the enclosure base and the pivoting axles are connected to the enclosure base and pivot with the enclosure cover. The pivoting axles are not circular but present lobes or cams at a certain angle. The connecting poles are connected to the pivoting axles and the pushing members, the pushing members are fixed on the enclosure base and connected to the height-adjusting feet. Rotating the cover up and away from the enclosure base causes the lobes of the pivoting axles to lift and thus bear down on the height-adjusting feet, extending them through the enclosure base to take the weight of the computer and provide a larger space for the movement of cooling air underneath the computer.

  • Patent number: 7603095
    Abstract: The present invention provides a way of hysteretic switching for efficiently reducing the heavy switching between two adjacent coarse intervals. The present invention disposes a number of fine intervals to cover a range which is larger than the length of one coarse interval. Each coarse interval comprises some extra fine intervals which are exceeded the boundary of the coarse intervals in one side. The heavy switching will be postponed until the extra fine intervals are used up. In the meantime, the fine calibration unit records the number of extra fine interval which be used. An extra-boundary value will be recorded in the fine calibration unit for determining an initial fine interval in another coarse interval if the heavy switching occurs. It should be noted that the extra-boundary value could be a positive or minus value corresponding to which a forward coarse interval or a backward coarse interval the reference signal drifts into.

  • Publication number: 20070090862
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method of controlling and tuning clock phase alignment with a dual loop of a hybrid phase and time domain for clock source synchronization in electronic devices are described. The coarse calibration unit generates a plurality of output signals, the output signals having a plurality of fixed phase intervals therebetween. At least one of the fixed phase intervals is equal to complete 360 degrees which are divided by the number of the output signals to cover the phase range of complete 360 degrees. The first fine calibration unit connected to the coarse calibration unit delays the output signals generated from the coarse calibration unit by coupling a programmable delay circuit to adjust the phase of a feedback signal toward the phase of a reference signal.
