  • Patent number: 10916465
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to transferring dies or other electronic components from a carrier substrate to a target substrate of a device as part of chip assembly for the device. Bonding material is applied to selected dies on a carrier substrate by direct boning, or to corresponding die transfer locations on a target substrate. The carrier substrate is then brought into contact with the target substrate to transfer each of the selected dies to the carrier substrate. Dies can also be directly bonded to the target substrate even in the presence of other die in situ (e.g., from a previous bonding cycle), hence, enables more than one direct bond cycle to be carried out for a target substrate. As such, multi-color (RGB) display elements can be assembled in stages (e.g., separate bonding cycles) in a flexible manner to provide redundancy or to replace inoperative LED dies.

  • Patent number: 10895787
    Abstract: A liquid crystal panel includes an array substrate, a counter substrate, and a liquid crystal layer therebetween. The counter substrate includes a sub-pixel in-between light blocking section extending in a grid and surrounding the sub pixels, a first projection projecting from the counter substrate toward the array substrate and having a projecting end that is contacted with a part of the array substrate to define a distance between the substrates, and second projections projecting from the counter substrate toward the array substrate and having projecting ends that are spaced from the array substrate. The first projection and the second projections overlap the sub-pixel in-between light blocking section. A distance between a center line of a width dimension of the sub-pixel in-between light blocking section and a center of each second projection is smaller than a distance between the center line and a center of the first projection.

  • Patent number: 10838262
    Abstract: In a liquid crystal display device including a TFT substrate and a counter substrate, when an organic passivation film is not formed in the TFT substrate, the distance between the TFT substrate and the counter substrate in the display area of a liquid crystal display panel is provided by a cylindrical spacer. Also, the distance in the area where pixels, scan lines, and image signal lines are not formed within the liquid crystal display panel is provided by the cylindrical spacer. In this case, it is necessary to form a mount. The layer structure of the mount is the same as that of the TFT substrate with which the cylindrical spacer in the display area comes into contact. This makes it possible to equalize the distance of the liquid crystal layer of the liquid crystal display panel without an increase in production cost, and to prevent uneven brightness or color.
