    Abstract: A display device has alignment features that compensate for variability in open cells sourced from different vendors. A backlight is arranged behind or beneath an open cell to illuminate picture elements. The open cell and the backlight rest or reside within a cover shield. Because the open cell may have supplier variability, the cover shield has receptacles such as holes or apertures that align with features protruding from a module fixture. The modular fixture thus allows the open cell and the backlight to be arranged, aligned, and/or assembled to the covert shield, despite the supplier variability in the open cell.

  • Patent number: 11121331
    Abstract: A flexible substrate and a display panel using the same are provided. A plurality of groups of solder pads are provided. Each group of the solder pads is connected to each bending region. That is, the plurality of the groups of solder pads are distributed on a plurality of independent bending regions. It can be avoided that all groups of solder pads mentioned in the prior art are gathered from a lower frame of the display panel to an intermediate region to form an integral trace. Therefore, an area of a non-display region is greatly reduced, and a screen ratio is improved.

  • Patent number: 11096317
    Abstract: Systems and method for thermally managing display assemblies are provided. A closed loop pathway for circulating gas includes a channel located behind an electronic display located at a housing. A fan unit is positioned within the rear channel. A storage area for an equipment storage device is located within or adjacent to the channel and is partitioned by a barrier. A loopback channel accepts a flow of the circulating gas and forms a pathway about the equipment storage device. The fan unit generates an area of relatively high pressure circulating gas compared to circulating gas in the storage area, which causes a portion of the circulating gas to travel through the loopback channel to cool equipment stored at the equipment storage device.
