  • Patent number: 6556438
    Abstract: A densely packaged processor-based device, such as a server. The server includes a server chassis divided into two different cooling zones, a first pressure zone and a second pressure zone. A high output fan directs air across tightly packaged, heat producing components disposed in the higher pressure zone. The higher pressure permits sufficient airflow to adequately cool the components. This zone is separated from the second zone by a baffle to prevent the high pressure air from interfering with the cooling of components in the lower pressure zone.

  • Patent number: 6477055
    Abstract: A system for facilitating airflow in a processor-based device, such as a server. The system is particularly amendable for use in low profile devices that inherently have reduced space for airflow. The system utilizes a tray deployed along a base wall or other wall of the device chassis. The tray is utilized to secure a cable or cables that would otherwise inhibit airflow.

  • Publication number: 20020080541
    Abstract: A battery pack for a DIMM memory module is disclosed. The battery pack comprises a first casing part and a second casing part. The second casing part may be joined to the first casing part to encase at least one battery. The second casing part includes a lip capable of engaging one side of a printed circuit board and a flexible tab terminating in a hook, the hook being capable of securing the battery pack to the printed circuit board.
