  • Patent number: 8814229
    Abstract: Latching mechanisms for electronic modules. In one example embodiment, a latching mechanism for an electronic module includes a latch, a latch return spring, and a release slide. The latch is configured to rotate between a latched position and an unlatched position. The latch includes a latch arm on a first end of the latch and an engagement pin on a second end of the latch. The latch return spring is configured to bias the latch in the latched position. The release slide includes a slide ramp. The slide ramp is configured to engage the latch arm as the release slide is slid away from the engagement pin, which causes the latch to rotate from the latched position to the unlatched position.

  • Patent number: 8391708
    Abstract: Provided herein is a novel approach to simultaneous fiber presence detection and improved laser eye safety of an optical transceiver. The subject optical transceiver is fitted with at least one switch in its receptacle that controls the laser diode and indicates the presence of a fiber (or fibers) within such a receptacle. If a fiber is present within the subject module receptacle, the laser switch is permitted to be “on”, whereas the absence of a fiber will prevent the laser switch from turning on, thereby permitting effective control of the laser at a single point of failure within the entire optical transceiver system. The typical optical transceivers of today exhibit limited optical power output due to eye safety limit criteria.

  • Publication number: 20110071603
    Abstract: The therapy device enables the automatic application of customized and well controlled contrast therapy to localized areas of human and animal bodies. An electronic control circuit is used in conjunction with heat dissipating and heat absorbing surfaces to control the operation of a thermoelectric cooling module (TEC) to enable the administering of localized contrast therapy on human and animal bodies. The use of temperature sensors, timing circuits, and microprocessors in connection with the TEC and heat absorbing and dissipating surfaces allows precise control of the applied temperature and the time duration for cooling and heating cycles. The device is programmable and is capable of automatic cycling between desired heating and cooling temperatures for variable lengths of time.

  • Patent number: 7830296
    Abstract: A communications module includes an interior configuration designed to intercept, disrupt, and scatter EMI produced by the module during operation. The interior configuration may include an anechoic structure that includes a plurality of anechoic elements positioned proximate EMI-producing components within the module. The anechoic elements may form truncated pyramids, columns having rounded tops, cones, or other shapes. The anechoic elements may be uniform or non-uniform in size, length, or shape and can be arranged in a periodic, non-periodic, or random pattern. In some embodiments, the anechoic elements may include cast zinc metal, Nickel, and/or radiation absorbent material, such as a mixture of iron and carbon. In operation, EMI impinging on the anechoic elements is scattered by their surfaces until absorbed by the elements or other structures of the module, thereby preventing the EMI from exiting the module.

  • Patent number: 7555191
    Abstract: This invention relates to novel latching mechanisms for a pluggable assembly or module that comprises a communications interface between a computer processing unit and the housing of an optical transceiver (such as a XENPAK module). Such connections require multiple flexible spring configurations to ground the module housing to the CPU circuit board. Such flexible spring configurations must exhibit sufficient strength to allow for flexion upon introduction of the housing within a slot within a CPU, yet sufficient force as well to reliably maintain contact of the conductive springs on the optical transceiver to a grounding strip on the CPU circuit board. Furthermore, the springs themselves must release upon application of sufficient force as the user slides the transceiver housing from the CPU slot as well.
