  • Patent number: 9307659
    Abstract: A constraint mechanism includes a constraint component disposed on a second housing, and a flexible component disposed on a first housing. The constraint component includes a guide slot and an engaging portion. The flexible component includes a main body, a bending portion and a contacting portion. A first edge of the main body is fixed by a side of an opening on the first housing. A first side of the bending portion is connected to the main body, and is located at a position adjacent to a second edge of the main body. The contacting portion is disposed on a second side of the bending portion. A rim of the contacting portion is an arc structure. The contacting portion moves along the guide slot, so that the arc structure can be constrained by the engaging portion, to constrain a movement of the first housing relative to the second housing.

  • Patent number: 9055675
    Abstract: A flap door mechanism with closable function includes a door member, a resilient member and a spring arm member. The door member is pivoted to a casing. The resilient member is installed on the door member and for driving the door member to rotate in a first direction. The resilient member includes a first end and a second end. The spring arm member is selectively disposed on the door member or on the casing. The spring arm member abuts against the first end. When the door member rotates in a second direction opposite to the first direction, the spring arm member is pushed to bend by the first end or is pressed to flatten by the casing, so as to reduce deformation between the first end and the second end of the resilient member.

  • Patent number: 8700847
    Abstract: A method for managing read/write (R/W) operations on an electronic device with hard disks, includes: upon receipt of R/W operation information related to an intended R/W operation, configuring a processor to decide which of the hard disks will be read/written with reference to the R/W operation information and sets of pre-established performance information. The sets respectively correspond to R/W operation settings. Each set includes multiple pieces of information each containing a performance indication related to a corresponding one of candidate combinations of the hard disks under the corresponding R/W operation setting. The decision is made with reference to the set, the R/W operation setting corresponding to which matches the R/W operation information.
