  • Patent number: 8913395
    Abstract: This is directed to connecting two or more elements using an intermediate element constructed from a material that changes between states. An electronic device can include one or more components constructed by connecting several elements. To provide a connection having a reduced or small size or cross-section and construct a component having high tolerances, a material can be provided in a first state in which it flows between the elements before changing to a second state in which it adheres to the elements and provides a structurally sound connection. For example, a plastic can be molded between the elements. As another example, a composite material can be brazed between the elements. In some cases, internal surfaces of the elements can include one or more features for enhancing a bond between the elements and the material providing the interface between the elements.

  • Patent number: 8891249
    Abstract: A display mount includes a wall interface that can be attached on a wall and a display interface that can be attached to a flat panel display. The width of the wall interface can be adjusted to accommodate flat panel display of different sizes. The display interface can be positioned on the mounting interface and adjusted to achieve a desired viewing angle of flat panel display. The display mount enables the flat panel display to be self balancing at any point along the tilting travel of the display and avoids contact between the wall and the display when the display is tilted.

  • Patent number: 8891232
    Abstract: A support stand suitable for a hand-held device is provided. The support stand has a first support member and a second support member. The second support member slidably fits the first support member and could be temporarily fixed at different positions on the first support member to adjust the length of the support stand. The hand-held device has a display screen and an antenna. Because the length of the support stand is variable, the hand-held device could be laid on the table by various inclination angles. Besides, the projections of the support stand and the antenna on the display screen are not overlapped, and the influence of the support stand made of metal on the signal of the antenna would be lowered.

  • Patent number: 8861224
    Abstract: An electronic mobile device includes a base supporting an input panel. A cover pivotally connects to the base and is pivotable from a closed position to an open position and vice versa relative to the base. In the closed position the cover covers the input panel, and in the open position the cover is disposed away from the base. A base magnet is supported within the base and has a first magnetic axis. A cover magnet is supported within the cover so as to move with the cover relative to the base. The cover magnet has a second magnetic axis that tends to align with the first magnetic axis to thereby bias the cover towards at least one of the closed position and the open position.

    Abstract: A power converter includes a converter casing made of an assembly of a first case body and a second case body. The first case body has a bottom plate. The second case body has a top plate. Side plates are arranged between the top plate and the bottom plate. A capacitor is disposed in the converter casing and includes a capacitor casing and a capacitor device which is sealed with potting resin so as to have a potting surface through which the potting resin is exposed outside the capacitor casing. The capacitor is fixed on the bottom plate with the potting surface oriented perpendicular to a normal direction of the bottom plate. A connector is provided which mechanically connects the bottom plate and the top plate and is located away from the side plates, thereby enhancing the suppression of mechanical vibration of the capacitor on the bottom plate.

    Abstract: A server includes a main board, a side panel having an attached female connector, an expansion card, and a lever. The expansion card includes a latching member having a pivot and a male connector. The lever includes an engaging portion defining a slot, and a main body connected to the engaging portion and pivotally connected to the main board. When the lever is rotated in a first direction, the pivot is slid into the slot, causing the engaging portion to engage with the latching member. Further rotating the lever in the first direction, the expansion card is urged to move toward the side panel until the male connector mate with the female connector. When the lever is rotated in a second direction opposite to the first direction, the expansion card is urged to move away from the side panel, causing the male connector to disengage from the female connector.
