  • Patent number: 10168746
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein provide a hinge mechanism to pivotally connect housings of a computing device along an axis. As an example, the hinge mechanism includes a guide rail fixed to the first housing, a base block fixed to the second housing, and a rotary element to constrain the guide rail to the base block, wherein the guide rail and the base block are concentric along the axis, and the guide rail is to rotate around the base block. As an example, the hinge mechanism includes a rotation assembly comprising a slot on one end to receive a pin of the guide rail in order to link the guide rail to the rotation assembly. As an example, the rotation assembly is to provide a level of resistance to a torque provided when opening or closing the first housing with respect to the second housing.

  • Patent number: 9798357
    Abstract: An information handling system (IHS) docking system includes an IHS chassis defining an alignment member passageway and an IHS connector opening. An IHS connector is movably coupled to the IHS chassis adjacent the IHS connector opening and resiliently biased into a retracted orientation. An alignment member securing device is moveably coupled to the IHS chassis adjacent the alignment member passageway and resiliently biased into a non-securing orientation. At least one docking actuator is located in the alignment passageway and coupled to the IHS connector and alignment member securing device. When the IHS chassis is docked with a docking station including a docking connector and an alignment member, the alignment member engages the at least one docking actuator to move the IHS connector relative to the IHS chassis to mate with the docking connector, and move the alignment member securing device relative to the IHS chassis to engage the alignment member.
