  • Publication number: 20200352052
    Abstract: Particular embodiments described herein provide for an electronic device that can be configured to include a fan where the fan blades are decoupled from the center shaft. The fan can include a center shaft, a motor coil support, motor coils coupled to the motor coil support, a rotator coupled to the center shaft, and fan blades coupled to the rotator, where rotation of the fan blades is decoupled from the center shaft by the rotator. A blade support can be coupled to the rotator, where the blade support couples the fan blades to the rotator and magnets can be coupled to the blade support. In an example, the rotator can include an inner, an outer race, and bearings.

  • Publication number: 20200132391
    Abstract: Particular embodiments described herein provide for an electronic device that can be configured to include a vapor chamber and means of attachment for the vapor chamber. The vapor chamber can include one or more columns, where at least a portion of the columns include fiber braids and one or more wicks. At least one of the wicks can also include the fiber braids. The columns can be braised to a top plate or a bottom plate of the vapor chamber. The vapor chamber can be secured over a heat source using a vapor chamber securing means that can include spring arms. The spring arms can bend, flex, rotate, etc. to absorb some of the force when vapor chamber is secured over the heat source.

  • Publication number: 20200128692
    Abstract: Particular embodiments described herein provide for an electronic device that can be configured to include a first housing, a second housing, where the second housing includes a fan, an inlet, and actuators, and a hinge, where the hinge rotatably couples the first housing to the second housing. When the first housing is rotated over the inlet, the actuators lower the inlet to create a gap between the inlet and the first housing. In some examples, the inlet includes slats and when the first housing is rotated over the inlet, a distance between each of the slats increases from a first distance to a second distance.

  • Publication number: 20190179377
    Abstract: A convertible mobile compute device comprises a lid, a base, and a hinge assembly coupled to the lid and the base. The hinge assembly includes a lid hinge bracket secured to the lid and configured to rotate about a lid hinge axis. The hinge assembly also includes a base hinge bracket secured to the base and configured to rotate about a base hinge axis. The lid hinge axis is offset from a centerline axis defined by the lid, and the base hinge axis is offset from a centerline axis defined by the base. As described herein, the offsetting of the hinge axes provides for a smaller a lid-to-base gap when the convertible mobile compute device is positioned in a closed mode relative to when the convertible mobile compute device is positioned in a tablet mode.

  • Publication number: 20190131692
    Abstract: Technologies for a metal chassis for an electronic device are disclosed. A manufacturer may manufacture a chassis of an electronic device by machining a recess into a chassis preform and perform an anodization of the chassis. The manufacturer may machine the side of the chassis preform opposite the recess to a predefined thickness, and then perform a subsequent anodization. The predefined thickness is selected so that, after the subsequent anodization, there is a single anodized layer between the surface of the recess and the chassis surface on the opposite side. The single anodized layer is non-conductive, allowing electromagnetic signals of an antenna to pass through.
