  • Patent number: 10405443
    Abstract: A movable adaptive structure for external devices has a main body and a movable element. The main body has an adapting window, an adapting terminal and a stationary portion. The adapting window is disposed on one side of the main body. The adapting terminal is disposed in the main body. The adapting terminal corresponds in position to the adapting window and thus is in communication with the outside, to adapt to an external device. The stationary portion is positioned proximate to the adapting window. The movable element has at least two positioning portions spaced apart and moves relative to the adapting window such that any one of the positioning portions is positioned at the stationary portion to change area of the adapting window. Therefore, the adaptive structure operates flexibly enough to adapt to the external device of variable dimensions.

  • Patent number: 10164513
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of acquiring input and output voltage information by employing a pulse width modulation (PWM) controller, which is in collocation with an input power processing unit, a primary inductor, a switch element, a current-sensing resistor, an output rectifier, and an output filter for converting an alternating current input power into an rectified input power and an output power, and the output power supplies an external load. A current-sensing signal is specifically disposed and applied to calculation of the input voltage and output voltage of the rectified input power when the switch element is turned on and off, respectively. Thus, no resistive voltage divider is needed, and power consumption at no load is greatly improved.
