  • Patent number: 11165141
    Abstract: A watch band for a watch can include an antenna that is operable for wireless communication with other devices. The antenna can be embedded within a body of the watch band to protect the antenna from an external environment and to conceal it from view. The antennas can adaptably stretch, bend, and flex with the watch band body, thereby avoiding damage from applied forces while also maintaining the compliance and comfort of the watch band while worn by a user.

  • Patent number: 10730210
    Abstract: Systems and methods of providing a composite material that is bendable but substantially resists stretching under tension. One embodiment may take the form of a composite material formed by over-molding a woven glass fiber with silicone. The woven glass fiber may be rolled out with a silicon polymer melted into the woven fabric as the rolling process continues. The composite of the two materials may provide a material that bends easily but does not substantially stretch.

  • Patent number: 10579118
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to detection circuits. In one example, a detection circuit includes a power supply, a transistor coupled to the power supply, a port coupled via the transistor to the power supply, where the port is to transmit power received via the transistor from the power supply to a corresponding port included in an external device when the corresponding port is coupled to the port, and a detection circuit to detect a voltage between the port and the corresponding port when the port is coupled to the corresponding port and interrupt, via the transistor, power supplied to the port when the detected voltage satisfies a threshold voltage.

  • Patent number: 10248590
    Abstract: A computing system for supporting a plurality of different types of memory devices includes a memory voltage regulator. The memory voltage regulator adjusts a supply voltage to a requisite voltage for a detected memory device based on serial presence detect (SPD) data. The computing system further includes a memory controller that supports a plurality of types of memory devices. The memory controller receives data regarding the type of the detected memory device, and controls input/output signals relative to the type of the detected memory device based on the SPD data and the GPIO data of the detected memory device.

  • Patent number: 10172426
    Abstract: A magnetic band clasp includes a female clasp assembly of a first band segment and a male clasp assembly of a second band segment. The female clasp assembly defines one or more cavities with one or more magnetic elements disposed underneath. The male clasp assembly includes a projection that may include a magnetic element. Magnetic attraction between the magnetic elements couples the first and second band segments when the projection is positioned in the cavity. In implementations where the female clasp assembly includes multiple cavities, changing which of the cavities the projection is positioned in adjusts a combined coupled length of the first and second band segments.

  • Patent number: 7071958
    Abstract: An electrode array printer has a housing, an image roller, and a plurality of developer modules. Each of the developer modules has an electrode array printhead, a toner cartridge and a developer roller. The electrode array printhead is installed on a side surface of the image roller for emitting an electron array onto the side surface of the image roller to form an electrostatic image. The developer roller is capable of attracting toner contained in a corresponding toner cartridge. The electrostatic image formed on the side surface of the image roller is capable of attracting toner from a developer roller corresponding to the electrode array printhead when the image roller rotates to a position where the electrostatic image is adjacent to the developer roller. The printer further includes a transfer roller, a fuser and a toner blade.
