Paper Abstract

In the past, flat panel displays usually required multiple printed circuit boards to contain the display driver ICs and the circuitry that communicates with the CPU and/or system. The result was a relatively bulky monitor package, compared to the thinness of the flat panel display element alone. An electroluminescent display element, for example, is less than .20 inches thick. However, when packaged with circuit boards, bezel, etc., the complete monitor depth exceeded 2 inches. Compared with a standard CRT, a 2-inch EL display represents significant volume savings. However, an EL display of this size still lacks the packaging flexibility required for ultra-port,ble designs where the entire display component cannot exceed the depth of a product's front panel, knobs, and switches.
