Publication number: US20220004734A1
Application number: 17/475,367

Abstract:
A fingerprint recognition apparatus including a frontplane, a backplane and a display medium layer is provided. The frontplane includes an upper substrate, a black matrix layer, a color filter layer, and a plurality of filtering elements. The black matrix layer is disposed on the upper substrate, and the color filter layer is disposed on the black matrix layer. The black matrix layer includes a plurality of pixel apertures and a plurality of first apertures. The filtering elements cover the first apertures and the filtering elements. The backplane includes a lower substrate and a sensor layer. The sensor layer includes a plurality of photo sensing elements. The photo sensing elements are configured to receive reflected lights from an object through the first apertures and the filtering elements. Areas of the photo sensing elements are overlapped with the first apertures in a longitudinal direction. The display medium layer is disposed between the frontplane and the backplane.

Publication number: US20210375196A1
Application number: 17/402,646

Abstract:
An LED driving apparatus for driving an LED array including a plurality of digital-to-analog converters and a plurality of data latch circuits is provided. Each of the digital-to-analog converters is coupled to a corresponding LED, and outputs a driving current according to n-bits pixel data to drive the corresponding LED. Each of the plurality of data latch circuits stores the n-bits pixel data, and is coupled to a corresponding digital-to-analog converter to control the n-bits pixel data to be written into the corresponding digital-to-analog converter. Each of digital-to-analog converters includes n sub-driving current generating circuits. Each of the n sub-driving current generating circuits generates a sub-driving current having a current value corresponding to a bit order of a bit of the n-bits pixel data. The driving current is generated by summing up n sub-driving currents.
