No. 11/132,155, filed on May 17, 2005 which claims priority to and the benefit of Korean Patent Application No. 10-2004-0035144 filed on May 18, 2004 and Korean Patent Application No. 10-2005-0031870 filed on Apr. 18, 2005, in the Korean Intellectual Property Office, the entire disclosures of which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Technical Field
  • The present invention relates to a plasma display device and, more particularly, to a plasma display device that can efficiently dissipate heat from switching elements or integrated circuit modules arranged on circuit board assemblies.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • Generally, a plasma display panel (hereinafter referred to as a PDP) is a display panel in which vacuum ultraviolet rays generated by gas discharge in discharge cells excite phosphors to produce images. The PDP has display configurations, including superior display capacity, brightness, contrast, and a wide viewing angle. Further, it may be lightweight, thin, and have a large screen.
  • A plasma display device according to the related art has a PDP that displays images, a chassis base that supports the PDP, a plurality of driving circuit boards that are provided on the chassis base to face the PDP, and a case that houses the PDP, the chassis base, and the driving circuit boards.
  • The case has a front cover that is disposed in front of the PDP and a back cover that is disposed behind the PDP. Generally, the front cover and the back cover can be assembled to each other.
  • The circuit board assemblies mounted on the chassis base includes a power supply board, an image processing board, a logic board, an address buffer board, a sustain electrode driving board, a scan electrode driving board, and the like. Many integrated circuit modules and switching elements are mounted on the various boards.
  • The sustain electrode driving board and the scan electrode driving board may have switching elements or integrated circuit modules that control sustain electrodes and scan electrodes of the PDP. The switching elements or the integrated circuit modules provide high-frequency sustain pulses, thereby generating heat. Accordingly, for PDP operation, the switching elements or the integrated circuit modules that control the sustain electrodes and the scan electrodes need to be maintained at a proper temperature.
  • However, large currents which flow in the respective integrated circuit modules provided on the circuit board assemblies result in a significant amount of heat being generated. If the heat is not sufficiently dissipated to the outside, the integrated circuit modules may cease to operate properly.
  • Some conventional plasma display devices have a space between the back cover and the circuit board assembly, the space being hermetically sealed. In order to dissipate the heat from the circuit board assembly, a ventilation section, such as a fan, is provided to cause forced convection. This structure works well to dissipate heat. However, the noise generated from the fan inconveniences the user.
  • On the other hand, other plasma display devices use heat sinks instead of a fan, allowing heat to be dissipated from the circuit board assemblies through free convection. In certain PDPs, a heat sink is provided at one side of a switching element or an integrated circuit module mounted on a circuit board assembly via lead lines, thereby forming a heat dissipating structure with a heat sink mounted on the circuit board assembly. According to this structure, a one-directional heat dissipating path is formed through which the heat from the switching element or the integrated circuit module created by driving the PDP is transferred to the heat sink and the transferred heat is dissipated through the convection reaction in the heat sink. However, this structure has a limit to the amount of heat dissipation of the integrated circuit module and the entire circuit board assembly.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • A plasma display device is provided that diversifies a heat dissipating path of a switching element or an integrated circuit module of a circuit board assembly, thereby enhancing heat dissipation of the switching element or the integrated circuit module.

The heat sink is formed such that one end thereof extends to come in contact with the chassis base.
  • The integrated circuit module may be a surface mounted device (SMD) type or a dual in-line package (DIP) type. Further, the integrated circuit module may be a hybrid integrated circuit (HIC) type or an intelligent power module (IPM) type.
  • The integrated circuit module may be disposed at an edge of the circuit board assembly. The heat sink may have a first portion that is attached to the integrated circuit module, a second portion that is bent toward the chassis base from the first portion, and a third portion that extends from the second portion to come in contact with the chassis base. The first, second, and third portions of the heat sink may have a U-shape section, collectively.
  • The first portion may be attached to a top surface of the integrated circuit module inwardly and the third portion may be attached to the chassis base outwardly. Further, the first portion and the third portion may be connected to each other through the second portion to have a heat conduction structure.
  • The first and second portions may be planar and may further have heat dissipating fins. Further, the third portion may also be planar.
  • The heat sink may be attached to the chassis base via a heat dissipating pad. The heat dissipating pad may be disposed between the third portion of the heat sink having the first, second, and third portions and the corresponding chassis base.

  • The heat sink and the auxiliary heat sink may be attached to each other via the heat dissipating pad. Accordingly, the heat transferred from the integrated circuit module to the heat sink is transferred to the auxiliary heat sink through the heat dissipating pad.
  • The other end of the auxiliary heat sink may come in contact with the chassis base. Accordingly, the heat transferred from the integrated circuit module to the auxiliary heat sink is transferred to the chassis base. The auxiliary heat sink and the chassis base may be attached to each other via the heat dissipating pad. Accordingly, the heat transferred to the auxiliary heat sink is transferred to the chassis base through the heat dissipating pad.
  • The integrated circuit module may be disposed at an edge of the circuit board assembly, such that the auxiliary heat sink can be freely attached to the one side of the heat sink.
  • The heat sink may be attached horizontally to the one side of the integrated circuit module and the auxiliary heat sink may be attached vertically to the one side of the heat sink. Therefore, a heat dissipating path of the heat generated in an intelligent power module can be diversified.
  • Further, the heat sink and the auxiliary heat sink may have the same shape. Therefore, parts of them can be used in common. Further, the auxiliary heat sink may have an L shape so as to be attached to the one side of the heat sink and the one side of the chassis base.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Referring to FIG. 1, an exemplary embodiment of a plasma display device of the present invention has a PDP 3 that displays images and a chassis base 5 that is coupled to a surface of the PDP 3 that is opposite to a display surface of the PDP 3. Further, the plasma display device has a front cover 7 that is disposed over the PDP 3 and a back cover 9 that is disposed over the chassis base 5.
  • A heat dissipating sheet (not shown) may be arranged between the PDP 3 and the chassis base 5 to transfer heat generated in the PDP 3 to the chassis base 5. Further, a filter 11 may be mounted on the front cover 7 so as to shield electromagnetic waves emitted from the PDP 3.
  • Typically, the PDP 3 has a substantially quadrangular shape (in FIG. 1, a rectangular shape in which the length in the X direction is longer than the length in the Y direction). The chassis base 5 has a shape similar to the PDP 3 and is made of a material, such as aluminum, having superior heat conductivity.
  • The PDP 3 is attached to one side of the chassis base 5 to be supported thereon. Mounted on the other side of the chassis base 5 are a plurality of circuit board assemblies 13, each circuit board assembly having circuit elements required for driving the PDP 3. The circuit board assemblies 13 may be mounted on bosses (not shown) that are provided on a rear surface of the chassis base 5 by set screws (not shown).
  • The circuit board assemblies 13 mounted on the rear surface of the chassis base 5 may include a sustain electrode driving board 13 a, a scan electrode driving board 13 b, an image processing board 13 c, a switching mode power supply (SMPS) board 13 d, and the like. Typically, the various boards are constructed by mounting various types of integrated circuit modules 15, such as an SMD, a DIP, a HIC, and an IPM, on a printed circuit board through lead lines.
  • A heat dissipating structure of an integrated circuit module 15 according to an exemplary embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. 2 and 3 which show an integrated circuit module 15 having an SMD-type switching element. The invention is not limited, however, to the integrated circuit module having an SMD-type switching element. For example, the invention can be applied to a DIP, HIC, or IPM-type integrated circuit module having been properly modified according to specific integrated circuit's structure.
  • As described above, the circuit board assembly 13 is fixed and mounted to the bosses 17 by the set screws 18. The integrated circuit modules 15 and other circuit elements are mounted on the circuit board assembly 13 to form a driving circuit.
  • Each integrated circuit module 15 generates heat as it drives the PDP 3, and thus the heat needs to be dissipated such that the integrated circuit module 15 is maintained at a proper temperature for continuous and natural driving. In order to dissipate the heat from the integrated circuit module 15, a heat sink 19 may be used. One side of the heat sink 19 of the present embodiment is attached to the integrated circuit module 15 and the other side thereof is attached to the chassis base 5, such that the integrated circuit module 15 is connected to the chassis base 5 through heat sink 19.
  • That is, the heat sink 19 is provided such that the integrated circuit module 15 and the chassis base 5 connected to each other form a heat conduction structure. For this reason, the heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15 is directly transferred to the one side of the heat sink 19 and then is transferred to the chassis base 5, such that the heat is dissipated. Further, the heat sink 19 itself has a structure in which the heat is dissipated through a convection effect. Therefore, a heat dissipating path of the integrated circuit module 15 is diversified, thereby efficiently enhancing heat dissipation. Accordingly, the heat sink 19 has superior conductivity as compared to conventional heat dissipation and is able to have a heat dissipating area as large as possible in a limited space.
  • The integrated circuit module 15, in which the heat is dissipated through the heat sink 19, is provided at many positions on a circuit board assembly 13. In order to enhance the advantage of the invention, the integrated circuit module 15 is in an exemplary embodiment provided at the edge of the circuit board assembly 13. Further, the heat sink 19 may be provided separately for each integrated circuit module 15 or may be provided commonly to adjacent integrated circuit modules 15. Further, in the design of the circuit board assembly 13, the integrated circuit module 15 may be arranged at the edge of the circuit board assembly 13.
  • The heat sink 19 of the present embodiment may be applied to all integrated circuit modules 15 provided on the circuit board assembly 13 or may be selectively applied to only the integrated circuit modules 15 which are provided at the edge of the circuit board assembly 13.
  • As shown in FIG. 3, the heat sink 19 of the present embodiment has a U-shape section, including a first, second, and third portions 19 a, 19 b, and 19 c. The heat sink 19 is provided on the integrated circuit module 15 which is disposed at the edge of the circuit board assembly 13. The first portion 19 a is attached to the integrated circuit module 15 and the second portion 19 b is bent toward the chassis base 5 from the first portion 19 a. Further, the third portion 19 c is formed integrally with the second portion 19 b and is bent horizontally to the first portion 19 a to be attached to the chassis base 5.
  • More specifically, an inner surface of the first portion 19 a of the heat sink 19 is attached to a top surface of the integrated circuit module 15 and an outer surface of the third portion 19 c is attached to the chassis base 5. The second portion 19 b connects the first portion 19 a to the third portion 19 c, thereby forming the heat conduction structure.
  • The first portion 19 a is attached to the integrated circuit module 15 so as to make substantial contact with the entire top surface of the integrated circuit module. The third portion 19 c is attached to the chassis base 5 so as to make substantial contact with the surface of the chassis base 5.
  • As such, the heat sink 19 having the first, second, third portions 19 a, 19 b, 19 c, respectively, can be implemented in various shapes. When the integrated circuit module 15 is disposed at the edge of the circuit board assembly 13, the heat sink 19 may be in a U-shape section. With the heat sink 19, the heat dissipating area of the heat transferred from the integrated circuit module 15 is increased.
  • Further, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, the first and second portions 19 a and 19 b are formed simply as plate shapes. With the plate-shaped first and second portions 19 a, 19 b, the heat dissipation of the integrated circuit module 15 depends on the heat conduction reaction to the chassis base 5 rather than the convection reaction.
  • On the other hand, the first and second portions 19 a, 19 b may have heat dissipating fins, such that the heat dissipation of the integrated circuit module 15 can be further enhanced.
  • FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional view partially showing a plasma display device according to another exemplary embodiment of the invention. FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view partially showing a plasma display device according to yet another exemplary embodiment of the invention.
  • Referring to FIG. 4, a heat sink 29 has a first portion 29 a, a second portion 29 b, and a third portion 29 c. The first portion 29 a has heat dissipating fins 29 aa. Further, referring to FIG. 5, a heat sink 39 has a first portion 39 a, a second portion 39 b, and a third portion 39 c. The first portion 39 a and the second portion 39 b have heat dissipating fins 39 aa, 39 bb, respectively.
  • The heat dissipating fins 29 aa, 39 aa, or 39 bb increase the contact area of the heat sink 29 or 39 with the external surroundings. As a result, heat from the integrated circuit module 15 can be dissipated more effectively through the convection reaction, as well as through the heat conduction reaction of the heat sink 29 or 39. Consequently, since heat from the integrated circuit module 15 can be effectively dissipated, many elements provided on the circuit board assembly 13 can be replaced with one element. As a result, the number of parts can be reduced.
  • Unlike the first portion 29 a or 39 a and the second portion 29 b or 39 b, the third portion 29 c or 39 c is attached to the chassis base 5 and thus it is formed in a plate shape. The plate-shaped third portion 29 c or 39 c may make substantial contact with the chassis base 5.
  • In the above-described exemplary embodiments, the heat sinks 19, 29, 39 are directly attached to the chassis base 5. However, a heat dissipating pad 21 may be disposed between the heat sinks 19, 29, 39 and the chassis base 5 such that the heat sinks come in closer contact with the chassis base 5, thereby enhancing the heat conduction effect. When the heat sinks 19, 29, 39 have first portions 19 a, 29 a, 39 a, second portions 19 b, 29 b, 39 b, and third portions 19 c, 29 c, 39 c, the heat dissipating pad 21 may be disposed between the third portion and the chassis base 5, thereby enhancing the heat conduction effect.
  • FIG. 6 is an exploded perspective view of a PDP according to yet another exemplary embodiment of the invention. FIG. 7 is an expanded perspective view of portion B of FIG. 1. FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line VIII-VIII of FIG. 7.
  • When driving the PDP 3, the integrated circuit module 15 generates heat, and thus heat from the integrated circuit module is continuously dissipated to maintain the integrated circuit module at a proper temperature so as to drive the PDP for a long time. In the present embodiment, in order to dissipate the heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15, a heat sink 49 and an auxiliary heat sink 48 are used. The heat sink 49 is attached horizontally to one side of the integrated circuit module 15 and the auxiliary heat sink 48 is connected to one side of the heat sink 49, such that heat is transferred from the heat sink 49 to the auxiliary heat sink 48.
  • The heat sink 49 and the auxiliary heat sink 48 may be attached to each other via a heat dissipating pad 41 having superior heat conductivity. The heat dissipating pad 41 allows heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15 and transferred to the heat sink 49 to be dissipated from the heat sink 49 and transferred to the auxiliary heat sink 48 immediately. Thus, the heat can be dissipated through the auxiliary heat sink 48.
  • The auxiliary heat sink 48 with the heat dissipating pad 41 diversifies the heat dissipating path of the integrated circuit module 15, thereby enhancing heat dissipation efficiency of the integrated circuit module 15. Heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15 is dissipated through the convection effect in the heat sink 49 and the auxiliary heat sink 48 with the heat dissipating pad 41.
  • Further, one side of the auxiliary heat sink 48 may be connected to the heat sink 49 and the other side thereof may be connected to the chassis base 5. In this case, the auxiliary heat sink 48 and the chassis base 5 may be attached to each other via a heat dissipating pad 42. As described above, the heat dissipating pad 42 allows the heat transferred to the auxiliary heat sink 48 to be transferred to the chassis base 5 immediately. Thus, the heat dissipating path from the auxiliary heat sink 48 is diversified.
  • Heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15 is dissipated via the heat sink 49, the auxiliary heat sink 48, and the chassis base 5. With the heat dissipating pad 41, the heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15 is dissipated through the convection effect in the heat sink 49 and the auxiliary heat sink 48 and through the conduction effect to the chassis base 5. Finally, the heat is dissipated from the surface of the chassis base 5 through the convection effect.
  • The heat sink 49 may be attached horizontally to the one side of the integrated circuit module 15, thus maximizing the attachment area of the heat sink 49 to the integrated circuit module 15. This allows the heat generated in the integrated circuit module 15 to be transferred to the heat sink 49 immediately.
  • The auxiliary heat sink 48 is attached vertically to the one side of the heat sink 49, thereby maximizing the convection area. Thus, the heat transferred from the heat sink 49 is dissipated through the convection effect of the auxiliary heat sink 48 immediately. The auxiliary heat sink 48 may have the same shape as that of the heat sink 49 and thus the same parts may be used for both components.
  • The integrated circuit module 15 is provided at many positions on the circuit board assembly 13. In one exemplary embodiment, the integrated circuit module 15 is provided at an edge of the circuit board assembly 13. Further, the heat sink 49 and the auxiliary heat sink 48 may be applied to all integrated circuit modules 15 provided on the circuit board assembly 13 or may be selectively applied to only the integrated circuit modules 15 which are disposed at the edge of the circuit board assembly 13.
  • In one exemplary embodiment, the auxiliary heat sink 48 may have an L shape so as to be attached to the one side of the heat sink 49 and to the one side of the chassis base 5. The heat dissipating pad 41 may be disposed between the L-shaped auxiliary heat sink 48 and the heat sink 49, and the heat dissipating pad 42 may be disposed between the L-shaped auxiliary heat sink 48 and the chassis base 5. In this case, the heat may be dissipated while sequentially passing through the heat sink 49, the heat dissipating pad 41, the auxiliary heat sink 48, the heat dissipating pad 42, and the chassis base 5.
  • FIG. 9 is a cross-sectional view partially showing a plasma display device according to still another exemplary embodiment of the invention. The configuration and the operation thereof is substantially similar to that of the previously described embodiment.
  • In the present embodiment, an auxiliary heat sink 58 has the same shape as that of a heat sink 59. The auxiliary heat sink 58 may be attached to the one side of the heat sink 59 so as to increase the area for the convection reaction, thereby enhancing the heat dissipation of the integrated circuit module 15.
  • Therefore, this configuration may be applied to any structures, regardless of where the integrated circuit module 15 is mounted on the circuit board assembly 13.
  • In the present embodiment, the auxiliary heat sink 58 may be attached to the circuit board assembly 13 without contacting with the chassis base 5.
  • As such, according to an exemplary plasma display device of the invention, the integrated circuit module provided on the circuit board assembly is connected to the chassis base via the heat sink, and then the heat generated in the integrated circuit module is transferred to the chassis base via the heat sink to be dissipated. Further, through the convection effect by the heat dissipating fins having large areas, the heat dissipation of the integrated circuit module can be enhanced.
  • Further, the auxiliary heat sink is provided on the side of the heat sink, and thus the heat generated in the integrated circuit module is dissipated through the heat sink and the auxiliary heat sink. In addition, the one side of the auxiliary heat sink is attached to the chassis base, and thus the heat is also dissipated through the chassis base, thereby enhancing the heat dissipation of the integrated circuit module.
  • Exemplary embodiments of the invention have been described, but the invention is not limited to these embodiments. Various modifications can be made within the scope without departing from the subject matter of the invention read on the appended claims, the detailed description of the invention, and the accompanying drawings. These modifications also fall within the scope of the invention.
