Abstract
(EN)
An electronic device may have a glass housing structures. The glass housing structures may be used to cover a display and other internal electronic device components. The glass housing structure may have multiple glass pieces that are joined using a glass fusing process. A peripheral glass member may be fused along the edge of a planar glass member to enhance the thickness of the edge. A rounded edge feature may be formed by machining the thickened edge. Raised fused glass features may surround openings in the planar glass member. Multiple planar glass members may be fused together to form a five-sided box in which electronic components may be mounted. Raised support structure ribs may be formed by fusing glass structures to a planar glass member. Opaque masking material and colored glass may be used to create portions of the glass housing structures that hide internal device components from view.

La présente invention a trait à un dispositif électronique qui peut être doté de structures de logement en verre. Les structures de logement en verre peuvent être utilisées de manière à recouvrir un écran et d'autres composants internes de dispositif électronique. La structure de logement en verre peut être dotée de multiples pièces en verre qui sont jointes à l'aide d'un processus de fusion de verre. Un élément périphérique en verre peut être fondu le long du bord d'un élément plat en verre de manière à accroître l'épaisseur du bord. Un élément à bord arrondi peut être formé en usinant le bord épaissi. Des éléments en verre fondu surélevés peuvent entourer des ouvertures présentes dans l'élément plat en verre. De multiples éléments plats en verre peuvent être fondus ensemble de manière à former une boîte à cinq côtés dans laquelle des composants électroniques peuvent être montés. Des nervures de structure de support surélevées peuvent être formées en fondant les structures en verre sur un élément plat en verre. Un matériau opaque de masquage et du verre de couleur peuvent être utilisés de manière à créer des parties des structures de logement en verre qui cachent les composants internes du dispositif.
