Title
(EN) FLEXIBLE ELECTRONIC DEVICES
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ÉLECTRONIQUES SOUPLES
Abstract
(EN)
Flexible electronic devices may be provided. A flexible electronic device may include a flexible display, a flexible housing and one or more flexible internal components configured to allow the flexible electronic device to be deformed. Flexible displays may include flexible display layers, flexible touch-sensitive layers, and flexible display cover layers. The flexible housing may be a multi-stable flexible housing having one or more stable positions. The flexible housing may include a configurable support structure that, when engaged, provides a rigid support structure for the flexible housing. The flexible internal components may include flexible batteries, flexible printed circuits or other flexible components. A flexible battery may include flexible and rigid portions or may include a lubricious separator layer that provides flexibility for the flexible battery. A flexible printed circuit may include flexible and rigid portions or openings that allow some rigid portions to flex with respect to other rigid portions.

L'invention peut concerner des dispositifs électroniques souples. Un dispositif électronique souple peut comprendre un dispositif d'affichage souple, un boîtier souple et un ou plusieurs composants internes souples configurés pour permettre au dispositif électronique souple d'être déformé. Des dispositifs d'affichage souples peuvent comprendre des couches d'affichage souples, des couches tactiles souples et des couches de revêtement d'affichage souples. Le boîtier souple peut être un boîtier souple multistable ayant une ou plusieurs positions stables. Le boîtier souple peut comprendre une structure de support configurable qui, quand elle est solidarisée, procure une structure de support rigide pour le boîtier souple. Les composants internes souples peuvent comprendre des batteries souples, des circuits imprimés souples ou d'autres composants souples. Une batterie souple peut comprendre des parties souples et rigides ou peut comprendre une couche de séparateur lubrifiante qui confère de la souplesse à la batterie souple. Un circuit imprimé souple peut comprendre des parties souples et rigides ou des ouvertures qui permettent à certaines parties rigides de fléchir par rapport à d'autres parties rigides.
