  • Patent number: 10788850
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relates to a method and device for balancing a supply current. In one embodiment, a current supply current for a load is detected. A first signal representing the current supply current is transmitted to a digital logic module. A second signal representing a maximum supply current and a third signal representing a minimum supply current are received from the digital logic module. A subsequent supply current for the load is determined based on the current supply current, the maximum supply current and the minimum supply current. By using the method and device according to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the supply currents of a plurality of power supply units for the load can be balanced a simple way with a low hardware cost.

  • Patent number: 10206304
    Abstract: A latching assembly is configured for releasably coupling a first component to a second component. The latching assembly includes an actuator portion configured to be longitudinally-displaceable along an axis of insertion of the first component and between an engaged position and a disengaged position. One or more ejector assemblies include a first end and a second end. The one or more ejector assemblies are configured to: slidably engage the actuator portion on the first end, releasably engage a locking structure on the second end, and pivot about a rotation point positioned between the first end and the second end.
