また、上ケース5のカバー4の組付部にも、図5に示すように、遮光兼反射用切欠部54が形成されている。この遮光兼反射用切欠部54は、補強部材8の遮光兼反射用切欠部84と略対応する形状をなしている。なお、上ケース5は、図6に示すように、その内面に補強用のリブを設けないものとなっている。   Further, as shown in FIG. 5, a light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 54 is also formed in the assembly portion of the cover 4 of the upper case 5. The light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 54 has a shape substantially corresponding to the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84 of the reinforcing member 8. As shown in FIG. 6, the upper case 5 is not provided with reinforcing ribs on its inner surface.
遮光兼反射用切欠部84は、白色樹脂による補強部材8につき、その周囲が光源からの光を反射する反射部となっている。そして、遮光兼反射用切欠部84の一端部には、斜面部85が形成されている。
なお、遮光兼反射用切欠部84について、図示例では、全周を囲む開口部としたが、一部を開放しても良い。
The light shielding / reflecting cutout 84 is a reflecting portion that reflects the light from the light source around the reinforcing member 8 made of white resin. A slope 85 is formed at one end of the light shielding / reflecting cutout 84.
The light shielding / reflecting cutout 84 is an opening surrounding the entire periphery in the illustrated example, but a part thereof may be opened.
そして、中ケース7の左右両側壁部の外側面には、一対の係止突起72がそれぞれ備えられている。この係止突起72が、補強部材8の係止片81の係止孔82にそれぞれ係止する。これら係止突起72及び係止孔82の係止により補強部材8が中ケース7に左右両端で固定される。この補強部材8は、上ケース5の内面に密着状態となる。   A pair of locking projections 72 are provided on the outer surfaces of the left and right side walls of the middle case 7. The locking protrusions 72 are respectively locked in the locking holes 82 of the locking pieces 81 of the reinforcing member 8. The reinforcing member 8 is fixed to the middle case 7 at both left and right ends by the locking projections 72 and the locking holes 82. The reinforcing member 8 is in close contact with the inner surface of the upper case 5.
また、上筐体1の中ケース7と上ケース5のカバー4との間には、光源としてのLED(Light Emitting Diode:発光ダイオード)9と、図7及び図8に示すように、カバー4の上面開口部41及び側面開口部42に対応したロゴによる第1の照光部11、及びスリット状の細長い第2の照光部21と、LED9の光を第1の照光部11に導光する第1の導光部材10と、LED9の光を第1の導光部材11を経て第2の照光部21に導光する第2の導光部材20とが配置されている。   Further, between the middle case 7 of the upper casing 1 and the cover 4 of the upper case 5, an LED (Light Emitting Diode) 9 as a light source and a cover 4 as shown in FIGS. The first illuminating unit 11 with a logo corresponding to the upper surface opening 41 and the side surface opening 42, the slit-shaped elongated second illuminating unit 21, and the first light illuminating unit 11 guides the light of the LED 9 to the first illuminating unit 11. One light guide member 10 and a second light guide member 20 that guides the light of the LED 9 to the second illumination unit 21 through the first light guide member 11 are arranged.
LED9は、着信を例えば7色等の発光色で順次点灯して報知するもので、図3及び図4に示すように、中ケース7内において、基板上に搭載されて、第1の導光部材10及び第2の導光部材20に対し光軸を所定角度傾けて配置されている。これにより、スリット状の細長い第2の照光部21に対し光を斜めに当てて先端まで照光する。   The LED 9 is used to notify incoming calls by sequentially lighting them with, for example, seven colors or the like. As shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, the LED 9 is mounted on a substrate in the middle case 7 and is used as a first light guide. The optical axis is inclined at a predetermined angle with respect to the member 10 and the second light guide member 20. As a result, light is applied obliquely to the slit-like elongated second illumination unit 21 to illuminate the tip.
第1の導光部材10は、例えば透明樹脂に光拡散材を混入した乳白色のもので、その上面にロゴによる第1の照光部11を一体に成形して、底面には、光を反射させるためにブラスト処理を施している。
第2の導光部材20は、例えば透明樹脂に光拡散材を混入して上筐体1の色に合わせて着色したもので、その左上部に傾斜面による細長い第2の照光部21を一体に成形している。
The first light guide member 10 is, for example, a milky white material in which a light diffusing material is mixed in a transparent resin, and the first illumination part 11 with a logo is integrally formed on the upper surface, and the bottom surface reflects light. For this purpose, blasting is applied.
The second light guide member 20 is made of, for example, a transparent resin mixed with a light diffusing material and colored in accordance with the color of the upper housing 1, and an elongated second illumination portion 21 with an inclined surface is integrally formed at the upper left portion thereof. It is molded into.
以上において、上筐体1の上ケース5の一側部に沿った二軸ヒンジ部3のカバー4の下側先端部のロゴによる上面開口部41に、第1の導光部材10の上面のロゴによる第1の照光部11が位置して、同じくカバー4の左側に沿ったスリットによる側面開口部42に、第2の導光部材20の左上部の傾斜面による細長い第2の照光部21が位置している。   In the above, the upper surface opening portion 41 of the lower end portion of the cover 4 of the biaxial hinge portion 3 along the one side portion of the upper case 1 of the upper casing 1 has the upper surface opening 41 by the logo on the upper surface of the first light guide member 10. The first illuminating part 11 by the logo is located, and the second elongated illuminating part 21 by the inclined surface at the upper left part of the second light guide member 20 is formed in the side opening 42 by the slit along the left side of the cover 4. Is located.
また、LED9と第1の導光部材10は、補強部材8の遮光兼反射用切欠部84内に配置される。第2の導光部材20は、第1の導光部材10側の基端部が遮光兼反射用切欠部84内に配置されるとともに、基端部から先端部側に向かう一部分が補強部材8上に配置されている。なお、遮光兼反射用切欠部84の斜面部85に対応して第2の導光部材20の斜面部25が当接している。   The LED 9 and the first light guide member 10 are disposed in the light shielding / reflecting cutout 84 of the reinforcing member 8. In the second light guide member 20, the base end portion on the first light guide member 10 side is disposed in the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84, and a part from the base end portion toward the tip end portion side is the reinforcing member 8. Is placed on top. The slope portion 25 of the second light guide member 20 is in contact with the slope portion 85 of the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84.
そして、着信によりLED9が、例えば7色等の発光色で順次点灯すると、第1の導光部材10を通った光でその上面のロゴによる第1の照光部11が発光する。従って、図1(b)に示すように、ロゴによる上面開口部41から発光する。
同時に、第1の導光部材10を経て第2の導光部材20を通った光でその左上部の傾斜面による細長い第2の照光部21が発光する。従って、図1(b)に示すように、スリットによる側面開口部42から発光する。
Then, when the LEDs 9 are sequentially turned on with light emission colors such as seven colors by the incoming call, the first illumination unit 11 with the logo on the upper surface emits light with the light passing through the first light guide member 10. Therefore, as shown in FIG.1 (b), it light-emits from the upper surface opening part 41 by a logo.
At the same time, the elongated second illuminating portion 21 with the inclined surface on the upper left side emits light by the light passing through the second light guide member 20 through the first light guide member 10. Therefore, as shown in FIG.1 (b), it light-emits from the side surface opening part 42 by a slit.
以上、実施形態の筐体構造を備える携帯電話によれば、上筐体1の補強部材8に光源のLED9を囲んで光を導出させる遮光兼反射用切欠部84を形成して、中ケース7に補強部材8の両端部を係止突起72及び係止孔82の係止により固定して、補強部材8を上ケース5に密着させたことで、上ケース5の補強部材8に遮光兼反射部材を一体化できるため、部品点数を削減しつつ、小型化も図れる。   As described above, according to the mobile phone having the housing structure of the embodiment, the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84 that surrounds the LED 9 of the light source and surrounds the light source LED 9 is formed in the reinforcing member 8 of the upper housing 1. Both ends of the reinforcing member 8 are fixed by locking the locking projections 72 and the locking holes 82, and the reinforcing member 8 is brought into close contact with the upper case 5, so that the reinforcing member 8 of the upper case 5 is shielded from light and reflected. Since the members can be integrated, the size can be reduced while reducing the number of parts.
しかも、補強部材8を上ケース5に密着させることで、遮光兼反射用切欠部84からの光の漏れを防ぐとともに、薄型化が図れる。   In addition, when the reinforcing member 8 is brought into close contact with the upper case 5, light leakage from the light shielding / reflecting cutout 84 can be prevented and the thickness can be reduced.
また、中ケース7に補強部材8の両端部を固定するようにしたことにより、補強部材8の基板上面を十分に活用できるため、補強部材8と基板上の電子部品とを積層させたり、補強部材8を切り欠いて、その切り欠き内に基板上の電子部品を配置することなどができ、補強部材8によって電子部品を保護することができる。   In addition, since both ends of the reinforcing member 8 are fixed to the middle case 7, the upper surface of the substrate of the reinforcing member 8 can be fully utilized. Therefore, the reinforcing member 8 and the electronic components on the substrate can be stacked or reinforced. The member 8 can be cut out, and an electronic component on the substrate can be placed in the cutout, and the electronic component can be protected by the reinforcing member 8.
そして、補強部材8の遮光兼反射用切欠部84からLED9の光を導出させる第1の導光部材10及び第2の導光部材20を設けたことで、第1の照光部11及び第2の照光部21への導光が効率的に行える。   Then, by providing the first light guide member 10 and the second light guide member 20 that lead out the light of the LED 9 from the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84 of the reinforcing member 8, the first illumination portion 11 and the second illumination portion 11 are provided. Can be efficiently guided to the illumination unit 21.
しかも、遮光兼反射用切欠部84には、LED9が照光する方向の斜面部85を形成したことで、遮光兼反射用切欠部84内に配置した第2の導光部材20における第1の導光部材10側の基端部から、傾斜面85に対応する斜面部25を経て第2の導光部材20の先端部側に向かう導光作用が得られる。従って、第2の照光部21を効率良く照光させることができる。   In addition, the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84 is formed with a sloped portion 85 in the direction in which the LEDs 9 are illuminated, so that the first light guide member 20 disposed in the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84 has a first guide. A light guide action is obtained from the base end portion on the optical member 10 side to the distal end side of the second light guide member 20 through the slope portion 25 corresponding to the inclined surface 85. Therefore, the second illumination unit 21 can be illuminated efficiently.
また、遮光兼反射用切欠部84の周囲は、白色樹脂による補強部材8につき、LED9からの光を反射する反射部となっているので、第1の照光部11及び第2の照光部21をより効率良く照光させることができる。   Moreover, since the periphery of the light shielding / reflecting cutout portion 84 is a reflecting portion that reflects light from the LED 9 with respect to the reinforcing member 8 made of white resin, the first illuminating portion 11 and the second illuminating portion 21 are provided. It can be illuminated more efficiently.
