Title (EN) FABRIC SIGNAL PATH STRUCTURES FOR FLEXIBLE DEVICES
(FR) STRUCTURES DE TRAJET DE SIGNAL SUR TISSU POUR DISPOSITIFS SOUPLES
Abstract:
(EN) An electronic device such as a cover for a portable device may be provided with a body having hinge portions. The hinge portions may allow the body to bend about one or more bend axes. The cover may have electrical components such as a keyboard. A keyboard may be mounted at one end of the cover and a connector may be mounted at an opposing end of the cover. A flexible fabric signal path structure may be formed from metal traces on a flexible fabric substrate. At one end of the cover, the flexible fabric signal path structure may be coupled to a printed circuit in the keyboard using conductive adhesive. At the opposing end of the cover, the metal traces on the flexible fabric substrate may be coupled to the connector.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif électronique, tel qu'un couvercle pour un dispositif portable, qui peut avoir un corps ayant des parties de charnière. Les parties de charnière peuvent permettre au corps de se plier autour d'un ou plusieurs axes de courbure. Le couvercle peut comporter des éléments électriques tels qu'un clavier. Un clavier peut être monté au niveau d'une extrémité du couvercle, et un raccord peut être monté au niveau d'une extrémité opposée du couvercle. Une structure de trajet sur signal de tissu souple peut être formée à partir de traces métalliques sur un substrat de tissu souple. Au niveau d'une extrémité du couvercle, la structure de trajet de signal sur tissu souple peut être accouplée à un circuit imprimé dans le clavier à l'aide d'adhésif conducteur. Au niveau de l'extrémité opposée du couvercle, les traces métalliques sur le substrat de tissu souple peuvent être accouplées au raccord.
