    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention [0001]
  • The present invention relates to a “liquid crystal (hereafter sometimes called LC) display” (hereafter sometimes “LCD”), and particularly, to an LCD with a curved LC screen. [0002]
  • 2. Description of Relevant Art [0003]
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a conventional LCD with a typical flat configuration. [0004]
  • The conventional LCD comprises a flat LC screen [0005] 1 and a flat back light unit 2. The LC screen 1 is comprised of a matrix of LC pixels each including a pair of transparent electrodes with an intervening body of LC and an associated thin film transistor circuit, and a corresponding lattice of horizontal and vertical signal lines. The back light unit 2 is comprised of a light source 11, a reflector 10, a light transmitting plate 9, a scattering or distributing sheet, and a prism sheet 7.
  • A recent LC screen is flexible, and naturally deforms along a curved surface, without undue distortion. However, the back light unit [0006] 2 is inflexible, as the light transmitting plate 9 has a varied optical characteristic if flexed.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

  • It therefore is an object of the present invention to provide an LCD with a curved LC screen, permitting a curved picture to be displayed without suffering from a varied optical characteristic. [0008]
  • To achieve the object, a first aspect of the invention provides an LCD comprising a curved LC screen and a flexible light emitting sheet curved along the curved LC screen. [0009]
  • According to this aspect of the invention, a flexible light emitting sheet constitutes a back light curved along a curved LC screen, with a flexible adaptation to a variety of desirable configurations in a simplified constitution. The light emitting sheet may be a single, even for a curved meter display such as for an instrument panel of an automobile. [0010]
  • According to a second aspect of the invention, the flexible light emitting sheet comprises a single sheet of a flexible transparent resin with a system of monoxide silicon particles mixed therein. [0011]
  • According to this aspect of the invention, a flexible body of a transparent resin is configured as a single sheet, and adapted for a brightness control, an even distribution and a transmission of light, to provide a thin display with a simple constitution. [0012]
  • According to a third aspect of the invention, the flexible light emitting sheet comprises an electroluminescent substance relatively high of brightness. [0013]
  • According to this aspect of the invention, a light emitting sheet flexible to provide a curved light emitting surface is rendered electroluminescent with high brightness, and can emit a competent quantity of light without assistance from an additional light source. [0014]
  • According to a fourth aspect of the invention, the flexible light emitting sheet comprises a flexible transparent resin sheet and a set of light emitting diodes (hereafter, simple “LED”) arranged thereon in a plane conforming manner. [0015]
  • According to this aspect of the invention, a set of LED's for a planer application are arranged in conformity with a configuration of a back side of a flexible transparent resin sheet in a facilitated manner. [0016]
  • According to a fifth aspect of the invention, the LCD further comprises a meter display panel for a vehicle, the meter display panel including the LC screen. [0017]
  • According to this aspect of the invention, a meter display panel of a vehicle has a curved display surface, of which some essential part may appear in a normal or straight sight angle of any passenger in the vehicle, allowing for the passenger to have a significantly relaxed, service-sharing, tireless observation, in particular in a rally or the like. [0018]
  • According to a sixth aspect of the invention, the LCD further comprises a connector housing member formed with a curved front face for the flexible light emitting sheet to rest thereon. [0019]
  • According to this aspect of the invention, a curved light emitting sheet fits on a curved front face of a connector housing member that may be employed for electrical connection to the LC screen.[0020]

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • There will be detailed below the preferred embodiments of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings. Like members are designated by like reference characters. [0027]
  • FIG. 2A shows an LC screen [0028] 1 or panel or cell in the form of a substantially rectangular plate with a thickness and a back light unit 2 in the form of a substantially rectangular plate with accessories at both sides, as they are left flat and extend straight, as principal components of an LCD according to an embodiment of the invention. The back light unit 2 is composed of a single sheet 3 of a flexible resin assisted for light emission with a pair of light sources 5 extending along both sides thereof and protected with a pair of reflection covers 6. Rays of light transmitted from the light sources 5 are emitted from the sheet 3. A light emitting side of the resin sheet 3 faces a light receiving back side 1 a of the LC screen 1.
  • FIG. 2B shows the LC screen [0029] 1, as it is curved to provide a rearwardly arcuate display surface, and the back light unit 2, as it is curved along the back side 1 a of the LC screen 1 substantially parallel to the arcuate display surface. The display surface of the LC screen 1 may be curved forwards, as well as rearwards, to be a wholly or partially quadratic or higher-degree surface, such as a cylindrical surface about a vertical, oblique or horizontal axis, a parabolic or highperbolic surface, or a spherical or spheroidal surface, alone or in combination, as well as in other embodiments of the invention.
  • FIG. 3 is an exploded view of a meter apparatus M for vehicles including an LCD according to an embodiment of the invention. The meter apparatus M comprises a rearwardly curved front or observation glass assembly [0030] 14, a rearwardly curved reverse assembly 13 as a supporting distance frame disposed behind the observation glass assembly 14, the LCD including a rearwardly curved LC screen 1 as a meter board disposed behind the reverse assembly 13 and a rearwardly curved back light unit 2 with a pair of rubber shielded flexible conductor combination members 18 at both sides, an LCD holder 16 as a straight support frame disposed behind the back light unit 12, a flat printed circuit board 19 disposed behind the LCD holder 16, and a shaped meter casing member 12 substantially horizontally extending behind the circuit board 19.
  • The LC screen [0031] 1 displays, on its front face, at a left side thereof e.g. a signal indicator 1 b, an alarm indicator 1 c and a speedometer 14 a, and at a right side thereof e.g. a temperature gauge 1 d, a fuel gauge 1 e and a tachometer 14 b. A driver naturally looks the left side, and a navigator naturally looks the right side, as the LC screen 1 is symmetrically curved with respect to an imaginary central vertical plane.
  • The back light unit [0032] 2 comprises a rearwardly curved sheet 3 of a flexible transmitted-light emitting resin, and a pair of left and right lighting devices each including a sheet-edge illuminating light source 5 connected via a cord to a power supply (not shown).
  • The LCD holder [0033] 16 is constituted as an LCD supporting connector assembly including an insulating rigid connector housing member formed with: a rearwardly curved central front face 16 a for a back side of the curved light emitting sheet 3 to rest thereon; a pair of upper and lower straight side portions 16 b for holding and supporting upper and lower edges of the curved light emitting sheet 3; and a pair of left and right connector housing portions 16 c cooperating at their inner sides with the front face 16 a and respective inner sides of the upper and lower side portions 16 b to define an arcuate accommodation space for accommodating therein the curved light emitting sheet 3. The accommodation space may accommodate therein the LC screen 1, as well. Each connector housing portion 16 c is formed with a vertically extending front slot 17 to fit on a rear connector portion 18 a of the conductor combination member 18. Pin connectors (not shown) are provided through the connector housing 16 c for electrical connection between control circuits on the printed circuit board 19 and the rear connector portion 18 a of the conductor combination member 18, which member 18 has a front connector portion 18 b adapted for electrical connection to signal lines in the LC screen 1, and LC control signals are conducted from the printed circuit board 19 via the pin connectors and the conductor combination member 18 to the signal lines in the LC screen 1.
  • The back light unit [0034] 2 may comprise a rearwardly curved rectangular sheet of a flexible body of an electroluminescent substance, such as a curved electroluminecent panel or cell, and a drive circuit for application of a sufficient voltage for excitation of the substance to produce and emit a necessary density of light flux.
  • It will be seen that an LCD according to another embodiment of the invention may comprise an entirety of the meter apparatus M. [0035]
  • FIG. 4 shows a flexible back light unit [0036] 2 according to an embodiment of the invention, as it is left flat for comprehension. This back light unit is identical to or may substitute for a respective back light unit in the embodiments described. The back light unit 2 comprises a rectangular single sheet 3 of a flexible transmitted-light emitting resin body, and a pair of left and right lighting devices each composed of a sheet-edge illuminating straight light source 5 and a back reflector 6 semi-circular or parabolic in section about the straight light source. The flexible resin body comprises a body of a flexible synthetic resin, such as a polyethylene, with a uniformly scattered system of monoxide silicon (SiO) particles 4 mixed therein. The particles 4 have a refractive index different from that of the synthetic resin. The single sheet 3 is adapted for a brightness control or light density smoothing, a light scattering distribution, and a light transmission for emission, as illustrated by arrows.
  • As illustrated by two-dot chain lines in FIG. 4, the lighting devices may be replaced by a matrix of LED's applied over a back side of the flexible light emitting sheet [0037] 3 in a plane conforming manner.
  • While preferred embodiments of the present invention have been described using specific terms, such description is for illustrative purposes, and it is to be understood that changes and variations may be made without departing from the spirit or scope of the following claims. [0038]
