  • Publication number: 20130222357
    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.

  • Patent number: 8505584
    Abstract: A structure of water-saving device includes a base, an adjusting ring and a gland. The adjusting ring is mounted in a water-inlet channel. The gland is movably positioned in the base to limit the adjusting ring. A central part of a top surface of the gland sinks downward to form a recess. When water flow impacts the gland, the gland pushes the adjusting ring, such that the adjusting ring is deformed. Since a difference of pressure occurs between a top and bottom surfaces of the gland, the larger the water pressure is, the larger the force from the gland toward the adjusting ring becomes; thus the degree of deformation of the adjusting ring also becomes large, such that the area between the adjusting ring and the bottom surface of the base for water flowing through decreases and the flow of water gradually achieves a stable value.

  • Patent number: 8476932
    Abstract: A multiplex gate driving circuit includes plural driving modules. In comparison with the prior art, each driving stage of the driving module has less number of transistors. From the first to the seventh example, each driving stage is implemented by only four transistors. In the eighth example and the ninth example, each driving stage is implemented by only two transistors. In other words, the driving stage of the multiplex gate driving circuit has less number of transistors, thereby reducing the layout area of the invisible zone of the LCD panel.
