A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11882667B1) discloses a replacement lid assembly designed for an RF amplifier housing in a hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network. The assembly includes a lid body portion with chambers for electronic components, a lid rim with a gasket channel, and an integrated power supply. Heat transfer fins are strategically placed for efficient heat dissipation. The lid gasket, made of silicone, features a conductive portion on the inside and a non-conductive portion on the outside, with curvature sections for secure placement within the channel.

Moreover, the patent also covers a housing for an electronic device in an outdoor setting, featuring a base with a base chamber and gasket channel, along with a lid assembly with similar components as the replacement lid assembly. The lid gasket, again with a conductive inside and non-conductive outside, ensures a secure fit. Additionally, an RF amplifier for HFC networks is detailed, with amplifier circuitry capable of handling RF signals up to 1.8 GHz. The lid assembly's design allows for easy removal without disconnecting the circuitry, showcasing practicality and efficiency in maintenance and operation.
