  • Patent number: 11099444
    Abstract: A display device includes a thin film transistor (TFT) array substrate, an isolation structure, and a front panel laminate (FPL) structure. The TFT array substrate has pixel electrodes. The isolation structure is between the pixel electrodes to form a first resistance between adjacent pixel electrodes. The front panel laminate structure is located on the isolation structure and the pixel electrodes adhesive layer, and has a display medium layer therein.

  • Patent number: 11042071
    Abstract: A waterproof display apparatus includes a bottom waterproof structure, a plurality of driving substrates, a panel laminate (FPL) and a top waterproof structure. The bottom waterproof structure has a first edge. The driving substrates are disposed on the bottom waterproof structure and defining a gap between adjacent driving substrates. The gap has opposite top and bottom portions. The FPL covers the driving substrates and includes a display medium layer therein. The top waterproof structure covers the FPL and has a second edge. The first and second edges are joined in a waterproof manner. The bottom portion of the gap is sealed by the bottom waterproof structure, and the top portion of the gap is sealed by the FPL or the top waterproof structure such that the gap is empty.

  • Patent number: 10324577
    Abstract: A writeable display medium incorporating various sensing elements into the backplane of the writeable display medium so that the sensing elements can cause the associated pixels to update immediately in contrast to state-of-the art writeable displays that rely on a feedback loop between a digitizing layer and a display driver that controls the output of a display. As a stylus is moved over the display, a signal emitted from the stylus (e.g., an electromagnetic field) will change the state of a transistor associated with a pixel, resulting in a nearly instantaneous state change in the display (i.e., white to black).

  • Patent number: 10191513
    Abstract: A waterproof display apparatus includes an envelope, a display panel and an adhesive structure. The envelope includes an inner enclosing surface. The inner enclosing surface defines an accommodating space. The display panel is at least partially accommodated in the accommodating space of the envelope. The envelope includes a light permeable portion that allows light from the display panel to travel out of the envelope. The adhesive structure is located in the accommodating space. The adhesive structure is adhered between the inner enclosing surface of the envelope and the display panel.

  • Publication number: 20130162693
    Abstract: A display with at least N(P?1)+1 number of gray levels extended from P number of gray levels is disclosed. The display includes a row driver, a column driver, scan lines and data lines crossing the scan lines to form a pixel matrix with pixels. The scan lines couple with the row driver and the data lines couple with the column driver. Each pixel further includes N number of sub-pixels and M number of transistors. The N number of sub-pixels are grouped into M number of sub-pixel groups. The M number of transistors control the M number of sub-pixel groups respectively and each sub-pixel group receives one of the P number of gray levels to display corresponding gray levels.

  • Patent number: 7866941
    Abstract: A fan comprises a ventilation device and a vibration device. The ventilation device comprises a housing, an impeller disposed in the housing and rotating with respect to a rotating center, and a driving mechanism disposed in the housing and connected to the impeller to rotate the impeller. The vibration device is disposed on the impeller and comprises at least one fixed element, at least one movable element, and at least one track. The fixed element is fixed to the track, and the movable element is slidably disposed on the track. When the movable element slides on the track, a vibration notification is generated.
