  • Patent number: 11914241
    Abstract: A high-brightness liquid crystal display device includes a display module; a temperature controller abutting a back surface of the display module, a first ventilation channel being formed in the temperature controller; and fans disposed on the display module in correspondence to the first ventilation channel of the temperature controller. The fans form an airflow that flows through the first ventilation channel, to adjust the temperature of the display module. According to the present invention, the temperature controller abuts the back surface of the display module to implement temperature control on the back surface of the display module. The back surface of the display module is a lamp panel, and the temperature controller abuts the lamp panel. The airflow formed by the fans quickly reduces and increases the temperature of the lamp panel, thereby ensuring that the lamp panel works at an appropriate environmental temperature.

  • Patent number: 11656661
    Abstract: Apparatuses and systems can mitigate the ingress of debris such as small foreign particles or fluids passing into a joint of an electronic device. Some aspects of the systems prevent particles from passing between a flexible cable and a mandrel surface used to limit bending of the cable. Other aspects provide particle relief features including gaps, grooves, or reduced-size sections of the mandrel so that particles can pass into them and thereby cause no damage or pass out of the electronic device. Another aspect provides a protective layer configured to limit pressure applied to the cable by particles or other contaminants. These apparatuses and systems can improve the life and durability of the mandrel and cable, thereby improving the reliability of operating the electronic device.
