  • Publication number: 20180210201
    Abstract: A head-up display device that displays a virtual image to be viewable by an occupant in a movable body includes: a light source part which emits light source light; a liquid crystal panel integrally having a pair of polarizers for liquid crystals and a liquid crystal layer disposed between the polarizers in a stacked state; and an additional polarizer arranged in an optical path between the light source part and the liquid crystal panel. The additional polarizer and the pair of polarizers for liquid crystals have properties of transmitting polarized light along a transmission axis and shielding polarized light along a shielding axis which intersects the transmission axis. The additional polarizer is arranged such that the transmission axis and the shielding axis respectively match those of a polarizer for liquid crystals adjacent to the light source part, of the pair of polarizers for liquid crystals.

  • Patent number: 9354673
    Abstract: A first antenna (31) is disposed closer to a rear touch panel (4) than to a display panel (2a) in the front-rear direction of a housing (20). The first antenna (31) is disposed so as to be offset with respect to the rear touch panel (4) in a direction perpendicular to the front-rear direction of the housing (20) so that at least a part of the first antenna (31) does not overlap the rear touch panel (4) in the front-rear direction of the housing (20). With such a structure, the display panel and touch panel are provided at the front surface and rear surface, respectively, and good reception sensitivity can be obtained.

  • Patent number: 8830197
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a front panel made of resin. The front panel is disposed on the front side of an organic electroluminescent display panel and functions as the front surface of the electronic device; and an adhesive agent layer formed between the organic electroluminescent display panel and the front panel. The organic electroluminescent display panel is fixed to the front panel via the adhesive agent layer. This structure is able to reduce a load applied to the organic electroluminescent display panel and ensure shock resistance for the organic electroluminescent display panel.
