  • Publication number: 20200281097
    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.

  • Publication number: 20200181941
    Abstract: A lead screw latch mechanism is provided and includes a gate check rotatable to assume locked and unlocked positions, a housing defining lock and unlock grooves and a key container. The key container includes a boss and is biased away from the gate check and selectively movable toward the gate check through the housing with the gate check assuming the locked position whereby the boss, having been received in the lock groove, is prevented from exiting the lock groove and the unlocked position whereby the boss, having been received in the lock groove, is permitted to exit the lock groove. The lead screw latch mechanism further includes an elastic assembly which, with the boss exited from the lock groove, drives key container rotation toward a rotational position at which the boss is aligned with the unlock groove.

  • Publication number: 20200071964
    Abstract: A locking module for selectively coupling a first component and a second component of a lockable device includes a locking element including a plurality of locking fingers movable between an open position and a closed position. The plurality of locking fingers being biased to said open position. A biasing mechanism is coupled to said locking element and a compression force applied by said biasing mechanism to said plurality of locking fingers controls movement of said plurality of locking fingers between said open position and said closed position.

  • Publication number: 20200002973
    Abstract: A locking module (42) for selectively coupling a first component and a second component of a lockable device (20) includes a housing (44) and a locking element (62) movably connected to said housing (44) between a locked position and an unlocked position. A rotatable shaft (46) including a magnet (70) extends into said housing (44). The shaft (46) has an opening (66) complementary to a portion of said locking element (62). A biasing mechanism (64) is coupled to said locking element (62) to bias said locking element (62) towards said locked position. In said unlocked position, said locking element (62) is positioned within said opening (66) in said shaft (46).

  • Patent number: 10524372
    Abstract: An enclosure is formed by coupling an outer cover to a back enclosure piece. The enclosure defines an interior volume for receiving components of an electronic device. The back enclosure piece is formed from a metal frame component and a non-metal outer cover. A metal layer overlaps the metal frame component and the outer cover within the interior volume. The metal layer has a thickness that provides support and shatter resistance to the non-metal outer cover. The metal layer can form an inductor of a wireless power transfer circuit.

  • Publication number: 20190278746
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media for storing and processing metadata corresponding to files are presented. The system comprises first, second, and third computing nodes. The computing nodes comprise a plurality of slices of a metadata database that is separate and independent from file storage, and each slice is configured to store metadata. The computing nodes further comprise a slice route table that indicates primary and secondary locations of each unique slice in the plurality of slices. The slice route table comprises a plurality of entries, each of which comprise a slice number corresponding to a slice in the plurality of slices of the metadata database, a primary computing node number corresponding to a primary computing node that comprises the slice and corresponds to the primary location, and a secondary computing node number corresponding to a secondary computing node that comprises the slice and corresponds to the secondary location.

  • Patent number: 9810002
    Abstract: A lock box is provided including a base plate. A back cover is mounted to the base plate and includes a first internal compartment. A first end of a connector is mounted within the first internal compartment and a second end of the connector, including an inlet, is selectively retained within the first internal compartment. A retention mechanism is configured to rotate between an unlatched and a latched position to selectively retain the second end of the connector. A front cover coupled to the base plate is movable between a closed and open position. When the front cover is in the closed position, the front cover limits movement of the retention mechanism between the latched and unlatched positions.
