  • Publication number: 20220373832
    Abstract: An active matrix substrate includes a first pixel region defined by first and second source bus lines adjacent to each other and first and second gate bus lines adjacent to each other and further includes a first pixel electrode and a first oxide semiconductor TFT that are associated with the first pixel region. The first oxide semiconductor TFT includes an oxide semiconductor layer and a gate electrode electrically connected to the first gate bus line. The oxide semiconductor layer includes a channel region and a low-resistance region including first and second regions located on opposite sides of the channel region. When viewed in a direction normal to the substrate, the low-resistance region extends across the first source bus line to another pixel region and partially overlaps a pixel electrode disposed in the other pixel region with an insulating layer interposed therebetween.

  • Patent number: 11494739
    Abstract: Message display control means updates and displays messages sequentially on a message list screen each time message receiving means receives a message. When input detection means detects a response message, identification means identifies the latest message at the time of detection and the response message. Response message sending means sends the response message as a response to the identified message to other participants upon completion of input of the response message. Therefore, even in the case where the message list screen is updated due to receiving the subsequent message during the input of the response message, the completed response message is able to be sent back to the response object message.
