Title (EN) FABRIC ELECTRONIC DEVICE HOUSINGS
(FR) BOÎTIERS DE DISPOSITIF ÉLECTRONIQUE EN TISSU
Abstract:
(EN) An electronic device such as a cover for a portable device or other electronic equipment may have circuitry mounted in a housing. The housing may be formed from layers of material such as fabric and polymer layers. The fabric may be formed from woven polymer yarn. The fabric may be treated with chemicals to improve stain resistance and wear resistance, may be provided with a polymer backing layer, and may receive molded plastic structures. Patterned areas may be woven into the fabric, may be formed by placing coatings on selected portions of the fabric, or may be formed by embroidering or otherwise locally processing the fabric. The patterned areas may form labels for keyboard keys, logos, key trim patterns, and other features for an electronic device. Patterned areas may have locally enhanced light transmission characteristics and may be backlit.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif électronique, tel qu'un étui pour un dispositif portatif ou un autre équipement électronique, qui peut avoir un ensemble de circuits monté dans un boîtier. Le boîtier peut être formé à partir de couches de matériau, tel que du tissu, et de couches de polymère. Le tissu peut être formé à partir de fil de polymère tissé. Le tissu peut être traité à l'aide de produits chimiques pour améliorer la résistance aux taches et la résistance à l'usure, peut comporter une couche de support de polymère et peut recevoir des structures en plastique moulé. Des zones à motifs peuvent être tissées dans le tissu, peuvent être formées en plaçant des revêtements sur des parties sélectionnées du tissu ou peuvent être formées par broderie ou sinon par traitement local du tissu. Les zones à motifs peuvent former des étiquettes pour des touches de clavier, des logos, des motifs de garniture de clé et d'autres caractéristiques pour un dispositif électronique. Des zones à motifs peuvent présenter localement de meilleures caractéristiques de transmission de lumière et peuvent être rétroéclairées.
