  • Patent number: 9529233
    Abstract: It is possible to separate each liquid crystal display panel from a mother board in which multiple liquid crystal display panels are formed even with a thin glass substrate, by forming a columnar spacer in the boundary between liquid crystal display panels, forming a scribe line corresponding to the columnar spacer on both sides of the counter substrate and the TFT substrate in the mother board, and forming a separation line between the scribe lines by applying a bending stress to the mother board. Since the columnar spacer is formed in a portion corresponding to the scribe line, the strength in this portion increases, so that the proper scribe lines and break lines can be formed when the thickness of the glass substrate is reduced to about 0.15 mm.

  • Patent number: 9523893
    Abstract: In order to increase the transmittance around a pixel and to increase the brightness of the screen in an IPS mode liquid crystal display device, a pixel electrode with a slit is formed on a common electrode through an interlayer insulating film. An opening is formed in the common electrode on the outside of the end portion of the pixel electrode as seen in a plane view. Because of the presence of the opening, the electric field lines from the end portion of the pixel electrode reach the layer above the liquid crystal layer and reach further away from the end portion of the pixel electrode, so that it is possible to increase the control ability to the liquid crystal around the pixel. As a result, the pixel transmittance can be increased as a whole and the brightness of the screen can be increased.
