  • Patent number: 11112653
    Abstract: A display device includes a planar array of blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that are each configured to generate a blue output light, wherein the planar array is positioned parallel to a light-receiving surface of a liquid crystal module and a nanocrystal material that is disposed between the planar array and the liquid crystal module, and the liquid crystal module. The nanocrystal material is configured to: receive the blue output light, convert a first portion of the blue output light to a green light emission, convert a second portion of the blue output light to a red light emission, and transmit a remainder portion of the blue output light. The liquid crystal module is configured to generate an image that includes a portion of the green light emission, a portion of the red light emission, and a portion of the remainder portion of the blue output light.

  • Patent number: 11092732
    Abstract: A lens assembly structures and methods are described with a glass surface facing user. The lens assembly may include a retention film on a rear surface of the glass layer with the front surface being free of a safety layer. The lens assembly may include a glass layer with a front surface to be engaged by a person and a rear surface and a retention film fixed to the rear surface and is transparent. A display generator may be fixed to the retention film. A spacing layer may be fixed on the retention film around the display generator. A mask may be fixed to a rear surface of the glass beneath the retention film. A support frame may engage the spacing layer and support the display generator with the glass layer being supported by the retention film and mechanically supported by both the display generator and the frame. The front surface may be free from a retention layer.

  • Patent number: 10871693
    Abstract: Various displays may benefit from suitable lenses. For example, certain vehicle displays may benefit from a curved, segmented, active-dimmable lens. According to certain embodiments, a system may include a segmented indium-tin-oxide layer. The system may also include a rigid lens disposed over the segmented indium-tin-oxide layer. The rigid lens may be curved.

  • Patent number: 10656465
    Abstract: A display device includes a light source that includes a blue light-emitting diode (LED) configured to generate a blue output light; a nanocrystal material that is disposed between the light source and a liquid crystal module, and a light guide assembly. The nanocrystal material receives the blue output light, converts a first portion of the blue output light to a green light emission, converts a second portion of the blue output light to a red light emission, and transmits a remainder portion of the blue output light. The light guide assembly includes a planar light guide optically coupled to a light-receiving surface of the liquid crystal module and a curved light guide optically coupled to the planar light guide and configured to receive light from the light source and direct the light toward the planar light guide.

  • Patent number: 10606378
    Abstract: Embodiments are disclosed for systems and methods for operating a display actuator to provide user-configurable actions. An example device for a human-machine interface includes a display on a first surface of the device, an input interface adapted to detect one or more of touch input, rotation input, and push input directed to the device, a controller configured to generate control instructions based on input received from the input interface, the control instructions including display instructions for controlling output on the display, and an output interface configured to send at least a subset of the control instructions from the controller to a receiving device, the device being removably coupled to the receiving device.

  • Patent number: 10462895
    Abstract: An electronic device including a substrate having opposing top and bottom surfaces is provided. A ground layer is disposed in the substrate. An electrically conductive chassis has a mounting surface to receive the bottom surface of the substrate and is in electrical contact with the ground layer by a ground stitch via. An electromagnetic shield is defined by the ground layer, the ground stitch via and the chassis to enclose the bottom surface of the substrate and protect the bottom surface from electromagnetic interference. A non-conductive cover is assembled to the substrate in tension so that an interior surface of the cover applies a force to the top surface of the substrate thereby ensuring the chassis maintains electrical contact with the ground layer.
