  • Contact Pin Design For A Modular Jack

    view source
  • US Patent:
    6394850, May 28, 2002
  • Filed:
    Mar 20, 2000
  • Appl. No.:
    09/528500
  • Inventors:
    David Oliphant - Salt Lake City UT 84120
    Thomas A. Johnson - Draper UT 84020
    Brent D. Madsen - Providence UT 84332
  • International Classification:
    H01R 1700
  • US Classification:
    439660, 439 62, 439676, 439946, 439354
  • Abstract:
    A communications card allows computers to be electrically connected to electronic devices and communications systems. The communications card includes a modular jack with a plurality of contact pins. The contact pins include a plug engaging portion that does not include any sections that are angled more than about 90° in order to minimize the stresses in the contact pins. The contact pins also include a connector portion that allows the contact pins to be electrically connected to a printed circuit board disposed within the communications card. Preferably, the plug engaging portion includes an elongated arm that aids in absorbing stress and deflection of the contact pins. Advantageously, the contact pins are designed to minimize the height of the modular jack such that the modular jack can be used with communications cards that comply with the PCMCIA Type III standards.
  • Stacked Electronic Integrated Card Assembly With Multi-Function Shared Interface

  • US Patent:
    6461170, Oct 8, 2002
  • Filed:
    May 17, 2001
  • Appl. No.:
    09/859903
  • Inventors:
    David Oliphant - West Jordan UT
    Steven LoForte - Copperton UT
    Brent Nixon - Salt Lake City UT
    Brent Madsen - Providence UT
  • Assignee:
    3Com Corporation - Santa Clara CA
  • International Classification:
    H01R 1200
  • US Classification:
    439 761, 361737
  • Abstract:
    A computer card assembly for removeable insertion into a receiving/expansion slot of a host computer is presented. The computer card assembly facilitates the removal and recombination of at least one electronic card in an electronic card interface tray that includes a shared interface. An electronic card interface tray includes an external shared interface that can facilitate larger jacks and opposing sidewalls which together form bays or slots within the computer card assembly. The electronic card is sized to be received within a bay of the card tray to facilitate insertion of the computer card assembly into the host expansion slot. The electronic card supports the standard host interface while sharing and external interface, such as a network interface, with other cards within the computer card assembly.
  • Retracting Modular Jack For Portable Appliance Connections

  • US Patent:
    6482019, Nov 19, 2002
  • Filed:
    Oct 13, 2000
  • Appl. No.:
    09/687016
  • Inventors:
    Steven Lo Forte - Midvale UT
    Brent Madsen - Providence UT
    David Oliphant - West Valley City UT
  • Assignee:
    3Com Corporation - Santa Clara CA
  • International Classification:
    H01R 909
  • US Classification:
    439131, 439676, 439329
  • Abstract:
    A modular jack, for coupling with a physical/electrical media plug, comprises a frame, a rocker arm, electrical contacts, and a retractable cover guard for protecting the electrical contacts during nonuse. The retractable cover guard moves from a protective position to a retracted position when a physical/electrical media plug is inserted into the modular jack and returns to the protective position when the physical/electrical media plug is removed. While only a shallow insertion depth of the physical/electrical media plug is permitted, the rocker arm aligns and mechanically secures the physical/electrical media plug within the modular jack.
  • Illuminating Electrical Jack System

  • US Patent:
    6483712, Nov 19, 2002
  • Filed:
    Mar 20, 2000
  • Appl. No.:
    09/528330
  • Inventors:
    David Oliphant - Salt Lake City UT
    Brent D. Madsen - Providence UT
    Rick Giles - Sandy UT
  • Assignee:
    3Com Corporation - Santa Clara CA
  • International Classification:
    H05K 114
  • US Classification:
    361737, 361736, 361752, 439 761, 439490
  • Abstract:
    An electrical jack system is operable with an electrical plug, such as an RJ-type plug. In one embodiment, the electrical plug is at least partially translucent. The jack system includes a housing bounding a socket. The socket is configured to receive the electrical plug. A light source is coupled with the housing so as to selectively illuminate the socket and/or the translucent electrical plug when the translucent electrical plug is received within the socket of the housing. In one embodiment, the light source is a light emitter, such as an LED, mounted on the housing so as to be at least partially exposed to the socket of the housing. In an alternative embodiment, an opening is formed on the housing in communication with the socket. A light emitter is disposed a distance from the opening on the housing. A conduit extends between the light emitter and the opening.
  • Extendable Planar Diversity Antenna

  • US Patent:
    6545643, Apr 8, 2003
  • Filed:
    Sep 8, 2000
  • Appl. No.:
    09/658140
  • Inventors:
    Douglas Alan Sward - Midvale UT

  • Assignee:
    3Com Corporation - Santa Clara CA
  • International Classification:
    H01Q 138
  • US Classification:
    343702, 343700 MS
  • Abstract:
    The present invention is a retractable/extendable diversity antenna that provides the appropriate polarization in a horizontal orientation. The antenna structure is placed within a Type II PCMCIA PC card package and may be extended or retracted with one touch. The antenna structure is large enough to provide for the diversity antenna design and may optionally be housed within a PCMCIA Type II PC Card. At least one spring-loaded mechanism is used to extend the antenna structure beyond the PCMCIA PC Card package and to provide stability while the antenna structure is in the extended position. The diversity antenna configuration may consist of either two miniature, planar antenna modules or two etched printed circuit board contours that are spaced as far apart as possible with a minimum separation of a quarter wave length distance in order to provide mitigation to radio multipath fading effects. The antenna modules have orientations perpendicular to each other such that the polar nulls representative of their radiation patterns remain spatially orthogonal.

    11/064801
  • Inventors:
    Roger T. Johnsen - Salt Lake City UT, US
    Richard C. Hedderich - Sandy UT, US
    Brent D. Madsen - Providence UT, US

  • International Classification:
    H02G 3/14
  • US Classification:
    174 66, 174 67, 220241
  • Abstract:
    A system is disclosed for mounting a faceplate. The system includes a sub-plate configured to be coupled to a junction box. The sub-plate can have an interference-fit socket extending through the sub-plate. The interference-fit socket includes one or more interference fingers located adjacent to a post opening. A post extending from the faceplate can be positioned and sized such that, as the faceplate is coupled to the sub-plate, the post will be received into the post opening in the interference-fit socket and engaged by the one or more interference fingers, enabling the faceplate to be securely mounted to the sub-plate.
