  • Patent number: 10244659
    Abstract: A thermal distribution assembly for an electronic device is disclosed. The electronic device includes an enclosure defined by a metal band and a non-metal bottom wall formed by glass, sapphire, or plastic. In this regard, the enclosure may include a relatively low thermal conductivity. However, the thermal distribution assembly provides heat transfer capabilities that offset thermal conductivity losses by using a non-metal bottom wall, and also provides added structural support. The thermal distribution assembly may include a first layer, a second layer, and a third layer. The first and third layers provide structural support, while the second layer provides a relatively high thermally conductive layer.

  • Publication number: 20190063640
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein generally relate to a pass-through bulkhead seal fitting for use in the aircraft industry. In one example, a pass-through bulkhead seal fitting includes a male fitting comprising a tubular body that is separable to receive existing wiring, and a nut that is separable to receive existing wiring and being rotatable in a single direction relative to a longitudinal axis of the male fitting.

  • Publication number: 20190041909
    Abstract: An electronic disclosed herein may include a band formed from metal that combines with a bottom wall formed from a non-metal to form an enclosure that carries internal components. The electronic device may include a transparent cover and a display assembly partially covered by a border having a uniform dimension. The electronic device may include a vision system designed for facial recognition of a user of the electronic device. A bracket assembly may hold the vision system. The bracket assembly may not be affixed to the enclosure and may move relative to the enclosure. The electronic device may include a battery assembly having multiple battery components coupled together. The electronic device may further include a receiver coil for wireless charging of the battery assembly. The electronic device may include a circuit board assembly having stacked circuit boards. The electronic device may further include a dual camera assembly.

  • Publication number: 20180083322
    Abstract: An electronic device having a battery assembly is disclosed. Unlike traditional battery assemblies that include rectilinear electrodes with two sides of equal length, the battery assemblies described herein may include electrodes having a shape/configuration resembling an L-shape electrode used to form chemical reactions in order to generate electrical energy. However, other shapes/configurations are possible. The shape/configuration of the housing of the battery assembly confirms to the shape/configuration of the electrodes. Further, in order to accommodate an internal component (such as a circuit board assembly), the shape of the battery assembly provides additional space in the electronic device. In order to form the electrodes, the electrodes may undergo a die cutting operation. Also, the housing may include a channel, or reduced dimension, that accommodates a flexible circuit in the electronic device that passes over the battery assembly at the channel.
