Title
(EN) COMPUTING DEVICE HINGES
(FR) CHARNIÈRES DE DISPOSITIF INFORMATIQUE
Abstract
(EN) A hinge of a computing device includes a primary support connecting a display to a stand. As the display rotates about the stand, the primary support slides along a friction strip, which stabilizes the display with respect to the stand. A stabilizer may connect the stand to the base or the stand to the display.
(FR) Une charnière d'un dispositif informatique comprend un support primaire reliant un écran à un support. Lorsque l'écran tourne autour du support, le support primaire coulisse le long d'une bande de frottement, ce qui stabilise l'écran par rapport au support. Un stabilisateur peut relier le support à la base ou le support à l'écran.
