  • Publication number: 20160340876
    Abstract: A front-knob type multi-function shower arm and method of implementing the same. The method includes the following two water output modes: (1) a shower head water output mode: when rotating upward a knob on a front face, a three-way splitter is brought to connect a water input channel of a main body to a shower head water output channel, so that water flows to the shower head water output channel, and then it flows directly out from a shower head; and (2) a shower water output mode: when rotating downward a knob on a front face, the three-way splitter is brought to connect the water input channel of the main body to the shower water output channel, so that water flows to the shower water output channel, and then it flows out a shower from an outside connected shower hose.

  • Patent number: 9030399
    Abstract: A gate driver for driving a TFT-LCD panel includes a number of gate-driver circuits arranged in groups and stages. Each gate-driver circuit has a main driver and an output section. The main driver is used to provide a charging signal to the output section which has two or more output circuits. Each of the output circuits is configured to provide a gate-line signal in response to the charging signal and a clock signal. The gate-driver circuit uses fewer switching elements, such as thin-film transistors, than the conventional circuit. When the gate driver is integrated in a TFT-LCD display panel and disposed within the periphery area around the display area, it is desirable to reduce or minimize the number of switching elements in the gate driver so that the periphery area can be reduced.
