Adapter Bracket for Multiple System Use

      An adapter bracket to allow the use of 3.5-inch form factor
devices in multiple system types is disclosed.

      The adapter bracket 1 shown in Figs. 1 and 2 allows replacing a
5.25-inch form factor device 3 with a 3.5-inch form factor device 2.
The design requirements of multiple systems (i.e., mechanical
packaging, electrostatic discharge (ESD), electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC), cooling) were considered when designing the
bracket.  A single device/adapter assembly can then be assembled or
purchased for use in more than one system.  The interchangeability
between systems reduces cost and customer down-time and promotes
migration.
