  • Patent number: 10051095
    Abstract: A low Z linear vibrator is described well suited for use in small form factor portable devices such as a smartphone. The low Z vibrator can be configured to include a beam structure that can be attached to a vibratory mass and a low profile actuator. The low profile actuator can cause the vibratory mass to oscillate in a well-defined and predictable manner.

  • Publication number: 20180215182
    Abstract: A printhead includes a printhead housing and a handle. The handle is movably coupled to the printhead housing. The handle rotatably moves with respect to the printhead housing between a folded position and the non-folded position. In the folded position, the handle extends along a respective housing surface of the printhead housing. In the non-folded position, the handle extends outward from the respective housing surface of the printhead housing.

  • Patent number: 8405512
    Abstract: A technique is provided for accessing diagnostic information in an electronic device. In accordance with this technique, a system is provided for determining diagnostic information about a power source. In one embodiment, the system provides an interface to provide access to the diagnostic information. The system may further provide a memory, wherein the diagnostic information may be stored. The system may further be configured to provide access to the diagnostic information when the electronic device is non-operational.

  • Patent number: 6782239
    Abstract: A wireless output input device (WOID) digital audio player for storing and/or receiving digital audio and preserving the digital stream without the inherent distortion of translating the stream to analog prior to modulation and transmission, which includes an FM receiver, and an FM transmitter for transmitting the audio to an external FM radio or receiver. The device automatically and periodically scans a plurality of channels on the FM band to determine the channel having the least amount of interference and then tunes the FM transmitter to the frequency of that channel and displays the channel to which the external receiver should be tuned. A remote control may be provided to selectively transmit signals to the player's FM receiver for controlling operation of the player.
