  • Patent number: 10090913
    Abstract: A device is configured to store information indicating a threshold bandwidth with which a multi-lane link is permitted to operate. The device may establish the multi-lane link with a peer device. The multi-lane link may include multiple lanes used to communicate data with the peer device. The device may determine fault states for the lanes included in the multi-lane link. A fault state, for a particular lane, may indicate that the particular lane is faulty. The device may determine an available bandwidth for the multi-lane link based on the fault states for the lanes. The device may selectively terminate the multi-lane link or operate the multi-lane link at the available bandwidth based on whether the available bandwidth satisfies the threshold bandwidth.

  • Patent number: 9567755
    Abstract: A sound-absorbing floating floor system includes a plurality of interlocking floor panels. Each floor panel includes a main body, a first locking edge portion defining a first locking tab and channel, and a second locking edge portion defining a second locking tab and channel. The first locking tab comprises a terminal cap portion. The first locking edge portion may comprise upper and lower rigid core layers and a resilient layer interspersed therebetween. The resilient layer extends through the first locking edge portion to isolate the cap portion of the first locking tab from the lower rigid core layer. In some embodiments, the main body includes the resilient layer which extends into the first locking edge portion. The second locking edge portion may also include the resilient layer. A plurality of floor panels may be assembled and interlocked via the locking tabs and channels to form a floating floor system.

  • Patent number: 9540825
    Abstract: A floating floor system and a floor panel and method for use with the same that includes an improved mechanical interlock system. The mechanical interlock system allows laterally adjacent floor panels that are mechanically interlocked to slide relative to one another a predetermined distance in a longitudinal direction, while prohibiting relative translation in the vertical and transverse directions. In one embodiment, the predetermined distance eliminates the need for precision cuts during installation, thereby making installation fast and easy. In a further embodiment, the invention optimizes the floor panels (and floating floor system.) to balance ease of installation and horizontal locking strength between laterally adjacent floor panels.

  • Publication number: 20160340910
    Abstract: A floating floor system and a floor panel and method for use with the same that includes a snap-fit locking assembly that provides vertical locking between adjacent floor panels to minimize and/or prevent ledging therebetween. In one embodiment, a protuberance and a recess are also provide on the floor panels to provide horizontal locking. The snap-fit locking assembly comprises: a locking member protruding from a first flange and comprising an undercut surface; and a locking slot formed in a second flange. The snap-fit locking assembly is configured so that when the locking member of a first one of the panels is disposed within the locking slot of a second one of the panels, the first and second panels are vertically locked together via mechanical interaction between the undercut surface of the locking member of the first panel and a locking surface of the second flange of the second panel.
