Publication number: US20190034023A1
Application number: 16/043,301

Abstract:
A method and a detection circuit for selecting a touch detection time are provided. The method for selecting a touch detection time includes the following steps: detecting a noise signal of a touch panel in a first display frame period; determining whether signal strength of the noise signal in a first time segment in the first display frame period is greater than a first noise threshold; and when the signal strength of the noise signal in the first time segment in the first display frame period is less than the first noise threshold, performing touch control in a second time segment in a second display frame period corresponding to the first time segment.

Publication number: US20180196184A1
Application number: 15/792,091

Abstract:
A backlight module includes a light guide panel, and first and second light sources. The light guide panel has a light-emitting surface and a bottom surface opposite to each other. Two adjacent sides of the bottom surface are respectively connected to a first light-incident surface, and a second light-incident surface. The first and second light sources are disposed adjacent to the first and second light-incident surfaces, respectively. Light-guiding patterns are arranged on the bottom surface or the light-emitting surface. Any adjacent two of the light-guiding patterns have a first pitch in a first direction and a second pitch in a second direction, respectively. The first pitch is decreased gradually from a position near the first light-incident surface toward a position far from the first light-incident surface. The second pitch is decreased gradually from a position near the second light-incident surface toward a position far from the second light-incident surface.

Publication number: US20160293074A1
Application number: 14/856,932

Abstract:
A display panel includes a gate line, a data line, a first testing pad, a second testing pad, and a switching circuit. The gate line receives a gate-driving signal from a first node. The data line receives a data signal from a second node. The first testing pad transmits the gate-driving signal via one of a first reserved path and a first transmission path to the first node. The second testing pad transmits the data signal via one of a second reserved path and a second transmission path to the second node. The switching circuit selectively connects the first transmission path to the first node and connects the second transmission path to the second node. The first testing pad is connected to the first node via the first reserved path, and the second testing pad is connected to the second node via the second reserved path.
