Darfon Electronics Suzhou Co. and DARFON ELECTRONICS Corporation | Date: 2017-01-12

An illuminated keyswitch includes a base, a keycap, a lift mechanism, and a light source. The keycap includes a cap body and a light guiding rod. The lift mechanism is connected to between the light guiding rod and the base, such that the keycap can vertically move relative to the base through the lift mechanism. The light source is disposed between the light guiding rod and the base and emits light toward the light guiding rod. The light enters the light guiding rod through an end portion of the light guiding rod and then emits out the light guiding rod from another end portion of the light guiding rod and a side surface adjacent to the another end portion toward the cap body. Thereby, the whole cap body can receives relatively uniform back light.

A keyswitch uses a combination of springs connected in serial for providing a return force to a keycap of the keyswitch. When the keycap moves toward a base of the keyswitch beyond a transition position, one of the springs stops continuously deforming. It leads to an increment of the elastic coefficient of the combination of springs and an increment of the elastic stored energy by the combination of springs. Therefore, during a pressing on the keycap, the keycap can provide a light force feedback and then a heavy force feedback to a user. Further, the keyswitch can use a switch with a lateral motion, which can reduce influence of a resilient force produced by the switch on the up and down movement of the keycap. The keyswitch also can use an elastic piece disposed beside the keycap, which can provide a tactile feedback to the user.

A keyboard device includes M driving circuits DC(1)DC(M), N transition circuits TC(1)TC(N), a control module, M column signal lines C(1)C(M), N row signal lines R(1)R(N) and M*N key units KU(1,1)KU(M,N). The control module performs a scanning process to sequentially scan the M column signal lines C(1)C(M) in M scan cycles scan(1)scan(M). If the key unit KU(k,x) connected with the k-th column signal line C(k) and the x-th row signal line R(x) is depressed, a scan voltage is transmitted from the k-th column signal line C(k) to the x-th row signal line R(x) through a switch sw(k,x) of the key unit KU(k,x). The transition circuit TC(x) connected with the x-th row signal line R(x) is turned on according to the scan voltage. Consequently, an output voltage Rout(x) from the transition circuit TC(x) has a first voltage level.

A backlight module includes a light source unit for providing light, a light guide plate including a plate body having a light entrance surface and extending along an X-Y plane and at least one opening in the plate body and extending along a Z axis, and an optical layer on one side of the light guide plate. The light enters the light guide plate from the light entrance surface and travels substantially along the X-Y plane. A cross section of the opening on the X-Y plane is a taper shape with a base region and a cone shape region extending from one side of the base region. The cone shape region is disposed between the light source unit and the base region. The optical layer has a through hole aligned and communicating with the base region. A projection of the cone shape region along the Z axis on the optical layer is at least partially outside the through hole.

A keyswitch includes a board, a cap, and a support device disposed between the board and the cap. A first abutting side of a first support member of the support device has a first hole formed toward a first bending arm of the board. The first bending arm is disposed through the first hole for pressing the first abutting side to abut against the board. The first abutting side has a second magnetic portion formed toward the second support member. A support portion extends from a second abutting side of the second support member toward the first support member for supporting the second magnetic portion. When the cap is pressed to make the second magnetic portion separate from a first magnetic portion of the board with rotation of the first and second support members relative to the first and second abutting sides, the cap moves to a pressed position.

A keyswitch structure includes a base, a keycap, a frame disposed between the base and the keycap for providing a supporting and moving mechanism to the keycap, and another frame interacting with the former frame through a magnetic attraction force. When the keycap is not pressed, the magnetic attraction force drives the two frames to stably stand on the base and form a stable supporting structure, so that the keycap is located at a farther position relative to the base. When the keycap is pressed with an external force to move toward the base, the magnetic attraction force is overcome so that the two frames depart from each other; that is, the above stable supporting structure is temporarily destroyed. Once the external force applied to the keycap is eliminated, the two frames will form the stable supporting structure again due to the magnetic attraction force.

An electric bicycle and a battery lift mechanism and a battery carrying device thereof are disclosed. The battery lift mechanism includes a bracket, a carrier for carrying a battery, an upward-force device coupling with the carrier, and a locking device selectively in an unlocked state or a locked state. The carrier is movable relative to the bracket along an up-down path; the upward-force device is capable of applying an upward force to the carrier. When the locking device is in the locked state, the locking device interferes with the battery to limit the relative movement between the battery and the bracket. When the locking device is in the unlocked state, the interference between the locking device and the battery is removed, so that the upward-force device drives the carrier carrying the battery to move upward relative to the bracket.
