An interface module included in a headend rack for enclosing electronic circuitry having a top, a bottom, and a back side that slides into the headend rack and connects to a backplane. The interface module includes a first planar surface connecting to the top side forming a first angle, a second planar surface connecting to the bottom side forming a second angle, and a front planar surface connecting the first and second planar surfaces. The first and second angles are equal and are obtuse. The interface module further includes a plurality of connectors extending from the first, second, and front planar surfaces for electrically coupling mating connectors with the enclosed electronic circuitry. The first, second, and front planar sides extend out of the headend rack, whereby the first, second, and front planar extended surfaces allow for a greater area for the plurality of connectors, thereby allowing conventional modules to be combined into one interface module.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
