  • Patent number: 10181684
    Abstract: A power connector has a power input port, a power output port, a signal transmission port, a controller, and a bridging circuit. The power input port is configured to receive input power. The power output port is applicable for plugging into an external device so as to provide output power to the external device. The signal transmission port is applicable for plugging into the external device to receive an indication signal. The controller is electrically connected to the signal transmission port and configured to adjust a control signal based on the indication signal. The bridging circuit is respectively electrically connected to the power input port, the power output port, and the controller, and controlled by the control signal to selectively transfer part of the input power to the power output port as the output power.

  • Patent number: 10169281
    Abstract: A switch system is provided. The switch system comprises a first multiplexer and a baseboard management controller (BMC). The first multiplexer is coupled to a first electrically-erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPORM). The baseboard management controller transmits a first control signal to the first multiplexer by a first multiplexer control channel. Wherein, the first control signal controls the first multiplexer coupling to a first serial peripheral interface (SPI) bus. The baseboard management controller transmits a first system parameter to the first multiplexer by the fist SPI bus. The first multiplexer writes the first system parameter by a second serial peripheral interface bus to the first electrically-erasable programmable read-only memory.

  • Publication number: 20180246835
    Abstract: Disclosed is a data transmission method of SGPIO that is applied to an expander and a target device connected by a SGPIO bus. The SGPIO bus at least includes a data output line and a data reading line. The expander outputs a page assign signal to the target device through the data output line. The page assign signal indicates a page address. The target device searches for at least one piece of page data at the page address according to the page assign signal. The target device outputs the page data to the expander through the data reading line. The expander reads the information transmitted through the data reading line. When the expander determines that the information transmitted through the data reading line includes the page address, the expander receives the page data.

  • Publication number: 20180145869
    Abstract: A debugging method of switches is applied to a server device comprising the switches, a central processing unit (CPU) and a baseboard management controller (BMC). The CPU generates at least one control signal and transmits it to the switches as executing a mission which relates to transmitting a signal generated by a source device to a sink device. At least part of the switches builds a connection relationship according to the control signal and the switches in the connection relationship are electrically connected to the source device and the sink device. When an error occurs to the CPU or the switches during execution of the mission, the CPU resets the connection relationship. The BMC determines whether the error is removed. When the error is not removed, the BMC records the error, resets the server device, and then selectively sets the switches with a preset connection relationship.
