  • Patent number: 10777585
    Abstract: To provide a display device with excellent display quality, in a display device including a signal line, a scan line, a transistor, a pixel electrode, and a common electrode in a pixel, the common electrode is included in which an extending direction of a region overlapping with the signal line differs from an extending direction of a region overlapping with the pixel electrode in a planar shape and the extending directions intersect with each other between the signal line and the pixel electrode. Thus, a change in transmittance of the pixel can be suppressed; accordingly, flickers can be reduced.

  • Publication number: 20200208888
    Abstract: It is an object of the present invention to provide an expansion valve with an improved vibration isolation mechanism. Accordingly, in the present invention, the expansion valve includes a valve body, a valve element, a biasing member configured to bias the valve body toward a valve seat, an actuation rod that comes into contact with the valve element and presses the valve element in a valve opening direction against a biasing force of the biasing member, and a vibration isolating spring configured to suppress vibration of the valve element. The actuation rod is inserted into an actuation rod insertion hole provided in the valve body. The vibration isolating spring includes a leg spring having a base portion and a plurality of leg portions extending from the base portion. The leg spring is arranged in the valve chamber such that a center axis of the leg spring is non-coincident with a center axis of the actuation rod insertion hole.
