  • Patent number: 10140908
    Abstract: A LED driving circuit comprises a high bit driving circuit, a low bit driving circuit and a driving output terminal. The high bit driving circuit coupled to a high bit signal of the grayscale signal determines a first current continuously driven during a grayscale period according to the value of the high bit signal. The first current is invariant during the grayscale period. The low bit driving circuit coupled to a low bit signal of the grayscale signal determines a second current driven in at least two time intervals during the grayscale period according to the value of the low bit signal. The driving output terminal coupled to the high bit driving circuit and the low bit driving circuit outputs the driving current added by the first current and the second current. Accordingly, the LED display can be improved with higher refresh rate and/or better uniformity in low grayscale.

    Abstract: A mobile station and unattached work area is used with an electronic pen, which includes a transmitter, such as an acoustic transmitter. The mobile station includes a receiver that receives signals from the transmitter and orientation sensors that detect movement of the mobile station. The position of the receiver is calibrated with respect to the unattached work area. Data from the orientation sensors is received when the mobile station, and thus, the receiver is moved with respect to the work area. A transformation matrix is generated based on the data from the orientation sensors, which can be used to correct for the movement of the receiver. The position of the transmitter in the electronic pen is calculated and mapped based on received signals and the transformation matrix and the mapped position is then displayed.
