Title (EN) HINGE WITH FREE-STOP FUNCTION
(FR) CHARNIÈRE À FONCTION D'ARRÊT LIBRE
Abstract:
(EN) Technologies are described for a hinge mechanism coupled to at least a dual-display device wherein the displays can rotate with respect to each other through 360 degrees. The hinge mechanism has at least one flexible connection member that follows a generally S shaped path when the displays are in a tablet position. In some embodiments, a second flexible connection member can be added that follows a mirrored S-shaped path. The S shaped path of the first flexible connection member and the mirrored S-shape path of the second flexible connection member together create a cross-configuration. In other embodiments, interconnected friction hinges can allow for a free-stop function at any point along the 360 degrees of rotation.
(FR) L'invention concerne également des Technologies pour un mécanisme à charnière couplé à au moins un dispositif à double affichage dans lequel les affichages peuvent tourner l'un par rapport à l'autre sur 360 degrés. Le mécanisme de charnière comporte au moins un élément de connexion flexible qui suit un trajet généralement en forme de S lorsque les dispositifs d'affichage sont en position de tablette. Dans certains modes de réalisation, on peut ajouter un second élément de connexion flexible qui suit un trajet en forme de S en miroir. Le trajet en forme de S du premier élément de connexion flexible et le trajet en forme de S en miroir du second élément de connexion flexible créent ensemble une configuration transversale. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, des charnières à friction interconnectées peuvent permettre une fonction d'arrêt libre à n'importe quel point le long des 360 degrés de rotation.
