  • Publication number: 20210378397
    Abstract: A vertically adjustable desk benching system wherein a plurality of desks may be joined together. The vertically adjustable desks may each have a planar work surface and telescoping support legs which are operable to raise and lower the work surface. The vertically adjustable support legs may be telescoping legs. The benching system may include a main bracket which attaches to a plurality of adjoining vertically adjustable desks while a first and a second end bracket may attach front facing desks on either side of the centrally adjoining main bracket.

  • Patent number: 11109672
    Abstract: A vertically adjustable desk with an under carriage mounting system is described. The vertically adjustable desk may have a planar work surface and telescoping support legs which are operable to raise and lower the work surface. The vertically adjustable telescoping support legs may be height adjustable by at least one electronic motor. The under-carriage mounting system may include a first and a second U-shaped support bracket that each receives a first and second runner support, the U-shaped brackets affixed to respective first and second vertically adjustable telescoping support legs. The U-shaped support brackets may be used to mount accessories underneath the work surface.

  • Patent number: 10372650
    Abstract: Circuits, methods, and apparatus that may improve networking techniques for transferring data among various electronic devices. One example may provide sharing data among various devices by daisy-chaining devices together. That is, several devices may be connected to each other through a series of cables to form a chain of devices. In this physical configuration, data may be shared among multiple devices using a series of single-hop virtual tunnels. Alternatively, a number of tunnels may be formed by a host device, each having a target device in the daisy chain. Each tunnel may originate at the host device and terminate at their target device. Each tunnel may bypass devices between the host device and the tunnel's target device. These two techniques may also be combined. Another example may provide a method of simplifying the routing of high-speed data signals through a network topology.
