Abstract

Disclosed is a front filter in a plasma display panel (PDP), in which the front filter comprises an impact-absorbing layer attached to a front surface of the panel and composed of one of EVA, acrylic polymers, and PVC to be able to absorb external impacts.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates in general to front filters in a plasma display panel, more particularly, to a front panel for improving durability of a plasma display panel.
  • 2. Discussion of the Background Art
  • Principle of plasma display panel displays (hereinafter referred to as PDP) technology is that 147 nm-ultraviolet rays generated by discharge of different compositions of inert gas mixtures, such as, He+Xe, Ne+Xe or He+Ne+Xe, irradiate phosphors emitting in either red, green, or blue to display images including characters or graphics. The PDP technology is at mass production stage, and recent advances in PDP technologies made easier to manufacture thin PDPs and to provide much improved picture quality. Especially, in case of a three-electrode surface discharge type PDP, charge particles formed by discharge (i.e. wall charge) are stacked on the surface, which in turn protect electrodes from sputtering originated by discharge. Thus, the three-electrode surface discharge type PDP is known for low consumption of voltage and long lifespan.
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the structure of a discharge cell in a related art PDP.
  • Referring to FIG. 1, the discharge cell of the related art PDP adopting tie three-electrode surface discharge type structure includes a scan electrode (Y) and a sustain electrode (Z) formed on an upper substrate 10, and an address electrode (X) formed on a lower substrate 18. The scan electrode (Y) and the sustain electrode (Z) respectively includes transparent electrodes (12Y and 12Z), and metal bus electrodes (13Y and 13Z) formed on an edge of the transparent electrodes (12Y and 12Z) and having a smaller line width than that of the transparent electrodes (12Y and 12Z).
  • In general, the transparent electrodes (12Y and 12Z) are composed of Indium-Tin-Oxide (ITO) and formed on the upper substrate 10. The metal bus electrodes (13Y and 13Z) are typically made of chrome (Cr) and formed on the transparent electrodes (12Y and 12Z), reducing voltage drop caused by the highly resistive transparent electrodes (12Y and 127Z). Also, an upper dielectric layer 14 and a protective film 16 are layered on the upper substrate 10 on which the scan electrode (Y) and the sustain electrode (Z) ate formed side by side. The charge particles formed by discharge (i.e. wall charge) are stacked on this upper dielectric layer 14. The protective film 16 protects the upper dielectric layer 14 from damages caused by sputtering during plasma discharge, and increases ejection rate of secondary electrons. Usually magnesium oxide (MgO) is used for the protective film 16.
  • On the lower substrate 18 on which the address electrode X is formed is a lower dielectric layer 22 and a barrier rib 24. Surfaces of die lower dielectric layer 22 and the barrier rib 24 are coated with a phosphor layer 26. The address electrode (X) is formed at right angles to the scan electrode (Y) and the sustain electrode (Z). The barrier rib 24 is formed in a strip or lattice pattern, and prevents ultraviolet rays and visible rays generated by discharge from leaking by an adjacent discharge cell. The phosphor layer 26 is excited by ultraviolet rays generated by plasma discharge, and generates one of visible rays in red, blue, or blue. The mixed inert gas is injected to discharge space formed in between the upper/lower substrate 10, 18 and the battier rib 24.
  • To obtain continuous-tone images, each frame of PDP is divided into a plurality of subfields with different frequencies of the radiation in time-sharing system. Each subfield is composed of three parts: a reset period for resetting the full screen, an address period for selecting a scan line and for selecting a cell among the selected scan line, and a sustain period for display images in gray scales according to the frequency of discharge.
  • For instance, suppose that an images needs to be displayed in 256 gray scales. Then, as shown in FIG. 2, a frame period (16.67 ms) corresponding to 1/60 sec is divided into 8 subfields (SF1 through SF8). As described above, each of these eight subfields (SF1 through SF8) is composed of three parts, namely the reset period, the address period, and the sustain period. The reset and address periods of each subfield are same for each subfield, but the sustain period of each subfield is exponentially increased at the rate of 2n (n=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7).
  • Moreover, a front filter is installed at the upper substrate 10 of the PDP, to shield electromagnetic wave and to prevent reflection of external light.
  • FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view of one side of a related art PDP.
  • Referring to FIG. 3, the related art PDP includes a panel 32 for which an upper substrate and a lower substrate are tightly adhered to each other, a front filter 30 installed at the front surface of the panel 32, a heat radiation plate 34 installed at the rear surface of the panel 32, a printed circuit substrate 36 attached to the heat radiation plate 34, a back cover 38 for compassing the rear surface of the PDP, a filter supporting part 40 for connecting the front filter 30 to the back cover 38, and a bearing member 42 installed in between the front filter 30 and the back cover 38 to compass the filter supporting part 40.
  • The printed circuit substrate 36 sends actuation signals to the electrodes of the panel 32. To this end, the printed circuit substrate 36 is mounted with diverse driving parts that are not shown in FIG. 3. The panel 32, in response to the actuation signal provided from the printed circuit substrate 36, displays a desired image. The heat radiation plate 34 radiates heat generated from the panel 32 and the printed circuit substrate 36. The back cover 38 protects the panel 32 from external impacts, and blocks ElectroMagnetic Interference (hereinafter referred to as EMI) in the rear surface.
  • The filter supporting part 40 electrically connects the front filter 30 to the back cover 38. In other words, the filter supporting part 40 earths the front filter 30 to the back cover 38, and prevents an occurrence of EMI on the side. The bearing member 42 bears the filter supporting part 40, the front filter 30, and the back cover 38.
  • The front filter 30 not only shields EMI but also prevents the reflection of external light. To this end, as shown in FIG. 5, the front filter 30 includes an antireflection coating 50, an optical characteristic film 52, a glass 54, an EMI shielding film 56, and a near infrared rays (hereinafter referred to as NIR) blocking film 58. In reality, an adhesive intermediate film is formed in between adjacent films (50, 52, 54, 56, and 58) of the front filter 30.
  • In addition, the optical characteristic film 52 is not usually an independent separate layer as shown in the drawing. Instead, the optical characteristic film 52 is formed by infusing a specific material to the adhesive intermediate film.
  • The structure of the front filter 30 is slightly different, depending on which manufacturer produces the front filter. For the convenience of description of the invention, the adhesive intermediate film is not illustrated in the drawings. However, the optical characteristic film 52 is well illustrated as a separate layer, and the structure of the front filter 30 is the one currently being used in the PDP.
  • The antireflection coating 50 prevents the reflection of an incident light from outside and thus, improves contrast of images on the PDP. The antireflection coating 50 is formed on the surface of the front filter 30. In some cases, the antireflection coating 50 can be formed additionally on the rear surface of the front filter 30 as well. The optical characteristic film 52 reduces the brightness of red (R) and green (G) rays among incident light from the panel 32 but increases the brightness of blue (B) ray, thereby improving optical characteristics of the PDP.
  • The glass 54 protects the front filter 30 from external impacts. In other words, the glass 54 supports the front filter 30 in order to prevent the front filter 30 and the filter 32 from being damaged by external impacts. The EMI shielding film 56 shields EMI, and prevents the ejection of EMI incidented from the panel 32 to the outside. The NIR blocking film 58 blocks NIR radiation from the panel 32, and using an IR like a remote controller, helps signal-transmitting devices to able to do their work as normally by preventing an excess of the ejection of NIR to the outside more than what is required. In the meantime, the EMI shielding film 56 and the NIR blocking film 58 can be integrated together, instead of being separate layers.
  • The above described front filter 30 is then electrically connected to the back cover 38 through the filter supporting part 40. To be more specific, the filter supporting part 40 is connected to the both components in such manner that it covers from one end of the front filter 30 to the rear surface of the front filter 30. Here, the filter supporting part 40 is electrically connected to at least one of the EMI shielding film 56 and die NIR blocking film 58. That is, by earthing the front filter 30 to the back cover 38, the filter supporting part 40 can shield the EMI and/or NIR effects.
  • Therefore, the glass 54 in the related art front filter 30 serves to protect the front filter 30 from external impacts. However, one of disadvantages of using the glass 54 is that the thickness of the front filter 30 with the glass 54 is increased. In addition, when the glass 54 is inserted to the front filter 30, total weight and cost of manufacture are increased.
  • To resolve the above problems, a film type front filter 60 without the glass 54 is newly introduced, as depicted in FIG. 6. The film type front filter 60 includes an antireflection coating 62, an optical characteristic film 64, an EMI shielding film 66, and an NIR blocking film 68. An adhesive intermediate layer is formed in between adjacent films 62, 64, 66, and 68 of the film type front filter 60 to adhere the films to one another. In general, the optical characteristic film 60 is not a separate layer, but formed by infusing a specific material to the adhesive intermediate layer. The structure of the front filter 60 is slightly different, depending on which manufacturer produces the front filter 60. For the convenience of description of the invention, the adhesive intermediate film is not illustrated in the drawings. However, the optical characteristic film 64 is shown as a separate layer.
  • The antireflection coating 62 is formed on the surface of the film type front filter 60, and prevents the reflection of an external incident light back to the outside. The optical characteristic film 64 dims down red (R) and green (G) rays among incident light from the panel 32 but increases the brightness of blue (B) ray, thereby improving optical characteristics of the POP.
  • The EMI shielding film 66 shields EMI, and prevents the ejection of EMI incidented from the panel 32 to the outside. The EMI shielding film 66 can be integrated with the NIR blocking film 68 which will be discussed next.
  • The NIR blocking film 66 blocks the incidence of NIR from the panel 32. Here, NIR has a wavelength of 700-1200 nm, and is generated by Xe that emits 800-1000 nm rays during the discharge of mixed inert gases filled in the PDP panel. When the NIR is ejected to the outside, signal-transmitting devices like a remote controller for transmitting signals via IR do not work. As a result, signals cannot be transmitted to the PDP any more. That is to say, the ejection of the NIR causes malfunction of the remote controller Hence, the NIR blocking film 68 made of NIR absorbing materials (or colorant) prevents an excess of the ejection of NIR to the outside more than what is required, to ensure that signals from the remote controller for example are properly transmitted to die panel 32.
  • The merits of the film type front filter 60 are that the film type front filter without the glass 54 is lighter and thinner than the front filter with the glass 54. Also, the film type front filter 60 can reduce cost of manufacture by not using the glass 54.
  • However, the film type front filter 60 without the glass 54, i.e. a tempered glass, is very susceptive to damages from external impacts, and this results in a much higher possibility to cause serious damages on the screen than to the front filter with the glass 54.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • The following detailed description ill present a film type front filter for a plasma display panel according to a preferred embodiment of the invention in reference to the accompanying drawings.
  • FIG. 7 is a cross-sectional view of the front filter in a plasma display panel (PDP) according to the present invention.
  • Referring to FIG. 7, the film type front filter 80 includes an antireflection coating 82, an optical characteristic film 86, an EMI shielding film 88, an NIR blocking film 90, and an impact-absorbing layer 84. An adhesive intermediate layer is formed in between adjacent films 82, 84, 86, 88, and 90 of the film type front filter 80 and in between the panel 32 and the films, thereby adhering them together. In general, the optical characteristic film 86 is not a separate layer, but formed by infusing a specific material to the adhesive intermediate layer. The structure of the front filter 80 is slightly different, depending on which manufacturer produces the front filter 60. For the convenience of description of the invention, the adhesive intermediate film is not illustrated in the drawings. However, the optical characteristic film 86 and the NIR blocking film 90 are shown as separate layers.
  • The antireflection coating 82 is formed on tie surface of the film type front filter 80, and prevents the reflection of an external incident light back to the outside. The antireflection coating 82 can be formed additionally on the rear surface of the film type front filter 80.
  • The optical characteristic film 86 dims down red (R) and green (&) rays among incident light from the panel 32 but increases the brightness of blue (B) ray, thereby improving optical characteristics of the PDP.
  • The EMI shielding film 88 shields EMI, and prevents the ejection of EMI incidented from the panel 32 to the outside. The EMI shielding film 88 can be integrated with the NIR blocking film 90 which will be discussed next.
  • The NIR blocking film 90 blocks the incidence of NIR from the panel 32. Here, NIR has a wavelength of 700-1200 nm, and is generated by Xe that emits 800-1000 nm rays during the discharge of mixed inert gases filled in the PDP panel. When the NIR is ejected to the outside, signal-transmitting devices like a remote controller for transmitting signals via IR do not work. As a result, signals cannot be transmitted to the PDP any more. That is to say, the ejection of the NIR causes malfunction of the remote controller. Hence, the NIR blocking film 90 made of NIR absorbing materials (or colorant) prevents an excess of the ejection of NIR to the outside more than what is required, to ensure that signals from the remote controller for example are properly transmitted to the panel 32.
  • The impact-absorbing layer 84 is a separate film, and either it is attached to other films 82, 86, 88, and 90, or it can be manufactured in form of an adhesive or a cohesion agent to be infused in between adjacent films 82, 86, 88, and 90. The impact-absorbing layer 84 can be made of various polymer materials, e.g., transparent material EVA, acrylic polymers, or PVC, and has a thickness of 500 μm-5 mm.
  • Basically, the impact-absorbing layer of the film type front filter improves a breaking strength of the screen display by absorbing external impacts.
  • In other words, the impact-absorbing layer plays a role as a tempered glass used in the related art front filter with a glass. It prevents deterioration of breaking strength of the screen display, which in fact is one of defects of the related art film type front filter, and thus improves durability of the film type front filter.
  • As discussed above, the film type front filter with tie impact-absorbing layer of the present invention can reduce possible damages on the display caused by external impacts, and improve breaking strength of the panel.
  • As a result, the impact-absorbing layer adapted to the film type front filter according to the invention plays a role as the tempered glass used in the related art front filter with the glass. In this manner, it is possible to obviate problems like deteriorations in breaking strength of die screen display, which is known as one of defects of die related art film type front filter, and to improve durability of the film type front filter.
  • While the invention has been shown and described with reference to certain preferred embodiments thereof, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various changes in form and details may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims.
  • The foregoing embodiments and advantages ate merely exemplary and are not to be construed as limiting the present invention. The present teaching can be readily applied to other types of apparatuses. The description of the present invention is intended to be illustrative, and not to limit the scope of the claims. Many alternatives, modifications, and variations will be apparent to those skilled in the art. In the claims, means-plus-function clauses are intended to cover the structures described herein as performing the recited function and not only structural equivalents but also equivalent structures.
