  • Patent number: 7675226
    Abstract: A high-frequency, high-voltage electron switch includes an electron source, a steering mechanism, a mask or anode plate, and a target. The electron source produces a beam of electrons with a voltage of at least about 1 kV that impinges upon the anode plate. The steering mechanism scans the electron beam across the anode plate at a scanning frequency of at least about 10 MHz. A hole or aperture is provided in the anode plate that allows the electron beam to pass through and produce a pulsed, high-voltage current in the target with a very high-frequency repetition rate and a very fast rise time. The pulsed, high-voltage current produced in the target can be used to cause a high-voltage source to turn on and off.

    Abstract: On an outer circumferential surface of a neck portion of a funnel, a CPU having a pair of quadrupole magnets and a pair of bar-shaped magnets each having magnetic poles on both sides in a major axis direction are provided. The pair of bar-shaped magnets sandwich the neck portion substantially in an in-line direction of an in-line type electron gun, and are provided so that identical poles are opposed to each other, between an end plate of an insulating frame of a deflection yoke and the CPU at a distance from the end plate. In the case where a rotational shift of electron beams is caused, electron beams R and B are corrected so as to move upward and downward (or downward and upward) respectively by a quadrupole magnetic field generated by the quadrupole magnets. Then, the electron beams R and B are corrected so as to move downward and upward (or upward and downward) respectively by the quadrupole magnetic field generated by the pair of bar-shaped magnets.

  • Patent number: 7012360
    Abstract: A CRT apparatus is composed of a CRT, a deflection yoke, a velocity modulation coil, and a magnetic member. The CRT includes a glass bulb made up of a panel and a funnel connected together and an electron gun housed within the glass bulb, and emits an electron beam from the electron gun toward a phosphor screen formed on an inner surface of the panel. The deflection yoke includes a horizontal deflection coil and a vertical deflection coil, and scans the electron beam over the phosphor screen. The velocity modulation coil is arranged outside the CRT, and modulates a velocity at which the electron beam is scanned horizontally. The magnetic member is arranged to surround an outer circumference of the CRT with the velocity modulation coil positioned therebetween, so as to cover a position corresponding to a space between axially aligned electrodes of the electron gun.

  • Patent number: 6984929
    Abstract: A color picture tube apparatus having a system for increasing an upper and lower pincushion distortion in the peripheral portion in the vertical direction by making the preliminary vertical deflection force when an electron beam is deflected toward the peripheral portion in the vertical direction of a phosphor screen relatively smaller than the preliminary vertical deflection force when an electron beam is deflected toward the middle portion in the vertical direction of the phosphor screen. With the color picture tube apparatus using an S-shaped distortion correction circuit, an upper and lower inner pincushion distortion can be optimized while correcting the upper and lower pincushion distortion.

  • Patent number: 6975064
    Abstract: This invention relates to a cathode ray tube having a funnel in the shape of a reverse curvature designed to improve the strength for the glass manufacturing process and test specification. In the present invention, a reverse radius is applied to the whole of the rear-side glass, which is the funnel, of the cathode ray tube. Therefore, the cathode ray tube has a high degree of strength for vacuum and a low weight, so that it can have a wide angle of the electric beam in accordance with the enlargement and the flattening plane of the cathode ray tube. The cathode ray tube that has the funnel in the shape of the reverse curvature comprises: a yoke on which a deflection coil is placed; and a body part that extends from the yoke toward an opening terminal attached to the panel.

  • Patent number: 6958573
    Abstract: Deflection yoke for a cathode-ray tube has at least one pair of saddle-shaped coils. The saddle-shaped coils form an asymmetric field in the vicinity of a front conductor assembly. The field asymmetry is produced by an inclusion near the front conductor assembly of at least a metal piece. The purpose of this asymmetry is to minimize the effects of an orthogonality defect between the deflection fields created by the horizontal and vertical deflection coils on the geometry of the image.
