Title
(EN) Computer connectors
Abstract
(EN)
Method and apparatus are described for inter-connecting a computer and computer peripheral without the need for cabling. Instead, connector plugs (12) for the respective interface ports are provided, each plug including a short range radio receiver adapted to receive and transmit signals to another such plug, to establish a data highway between the computer and a peripheral unit. A telescopic aerial (30) mounted on a swivel base may be provided together with a signal strength display (42). In order to reduce the protrusion from a computer or peripheral unit, the housing may be in two parts (46 and 48) which are hinged to permit part of the housing to be folded flat against the rear of the housing of the computer or peripheral unit. Power for the inter-connection devices is derived from the host computer or host peripheral unit.
