  • Please refer to FIG. 4. FIG. 4 is a partial and sectional view showing the display device in FIG. 1. The cover 110 of the embodiment has a base plate 112 and a sidewall 114. A supporting member of the frame 120 is protruded inward, and the supporting member includes a first supporting portion 122 and a second supporting portion 124. The first end 122 a of the first supporting portion 122 is engaged to the sidewall 114 of the cover 110. The second supporting portion 124 is connected to the second end 122 b of the first supporting portion 122 and leans or does not lean the base plate 112 of the cover 110 depending on the needs of product design. The glass module 130 is fixed to the first supporting portion 122 along a direction, and the backlight module 140 is disposed between the glass module 130 and the base plate 112 and fixed to the second supporting portion 124 along the same direction, wherein the direction along that the glass module 130 and the backlight module 140 are fixed to the frame 120 is the normal vector of the display region 132 on the display module. With the needs of product design, the first supporting portion 122 is located on the frame 120 at a position outside that of the second supporting portion 124, so the light can be totally transmitted to the glass module 130 from the backlight module 140. An opening can be formed at the center of the frame 120, and the light generated by the backlight module 140 can be transmitted to the glass module 130 via the opening so as to increase the brightness of the display region 132. When the panel module is fixed to the frame 120, the frame 120 can surround the periphery of the panel module, and the panel module must cover the opening to increase the brightness of the display region 132. With the needs of product design, the frame 120 can further include a retaining portion 126 for preventing the glass module 130 from leaving the first supporting portion 122 and for protecting the glass module 130. If the frame 120 does not include the retaining portion 126, the invention can further include a decorative frame 190 illustrated in FIG. 3. The decorative frame 190 is located at the periphery of the glass module 130 and engaged to the frame 120 or the cover 110 to protect the glass plates of the glass module 130 from breakage while being impacted. The glass module 130 includes a first side and a second side. The first side of the glass module 130 includes the display region 132 and is used to contact the retaining portion 126 or the decorative frame 190. The second side of the glass module 130 contacts or is fixed to the backlight module 140. The panel module also includes a first side and a second side, wherein the first side of the panel module is the first side of the glass module 130 and includes the display region 132. The second side of the panel module is fixed to the frame 120, so as to combine the panel module and the frame 120 to form the display module. The first side and the second side of the panel module are two planes in parallel with each other.
  • Under the configurations that the frame 120 has the retaining portion 126, the glass module 130 and the backlight module 140 of the panel module are both fixed to the frame 120, the frame 120 is engaged to the cover 110, and the glass module 130 is retained by the retaining portion 126, the assembly of the display module can be accomplished. Because the display module is mounted to the cover 110 without screws, the cover 110 does not need to provide space to be fastened by screws so as to have a thinner thickness and the display module does not need to be formed screw holes so as to have a larger display region 132 (as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 3). When the glass module 130 and the backlight module 140 of the panel module are just fixed to the frame 120 to form the display module, the frame 120 is the only structure that provides support. Thereby, the display module and the cover 110 can be combined to each other to form the display device 100 with the assistance of the support of the frame 120.
  • In the embodiment, the first supporting portion 122 and the second supporting portion 124 can be made of plastics that have buffering effect, so as to provide support to the glass module 130 and the backlight module 140. The retaining portion 126 can be made of rubber and integrally formed with the first supporting portion 122 and the second supporting portion 124 by co-injection molding. The cover 110 of the embodiment can be made of metals such as aluminum or other proper metals. But the invention will not be limited thereby. In other embodiments, the cover 110 can also be made of plastics and have integrally formed reinforcing ribs or metal members for improving structural strength.
  • As shown in FIG. 4, the first supporting portion 122 of the embodiment has a first supporting surface 122 c, and the second supporting portion 124 has a second supporting surface 124 a. The distance between the first supporting surface 122 c and the base plate 112 is longer than that between the second supporting surface 124 a and the base plate 112. The orthogonal projection of the peripheral part 134 of the glass module 130 on the base plate 112 and that of the backlight module 140 on the base plate 112 do not overlapped to each other. Therefore, the glass module 130 and the backlight module 140 that are stacked to each other are respectively fixed to the first supporting surface 122 c and the second supporting surface 124 a, wherein the glass module 130 is fixed to the first supporting surface 122 c with the peripheral part 134, and the glue applied between the panel module and the frame 120 includes epoxy.
  • Besides, the sidewall 114 of the cover 110 has a first fixing portion 114 a, the first supporting portion 122 on the frame 120 has a second fixing portion 122 d, and the cover 110 can be mounted to the frame 120 by making the first fixing portion 114 a and the second fixing portion 122 d to be engaged to each other. After the cover 110 is mounted to the frame 120 to form the display device 100, the position of the cover 110 is adjacent to the second side of the panel module, and the cover 110 and the frame 120 both provide support to the panel module so as to improve the structural strength of the display module. After the cover 110 is mounted to the frame 120, the sidewall 114 of the cover 110 will cover the sidewall of the frame 120 to avoid light leakage of the display device.
  • As shown in FIG. 4, when the display device 100 that has backlight is a liquid crystal display device, the glass module 130 of the first embodiment includes a first glass plate 136, a liquid crystal layer 137, and a second glass plate 138. The first glass plate 136 is located at the second side of the panel module and fixed to the first supporting portion 122, and the liquid crystal layer 137 is disposed between the first glass plate 136 and the second glass plate 138. The second glass plate 138 is located at the first side of the panel module for contacting the retaining portion 126 or the decorative frame 190. The first glass plate 136 and the second glass plate 138 can be made of transparent materials with high strength, so as to protect the liquid crystal layer 137 and make the light emitted by the backlight module 140 suitable to be transmitted to the liquid crystal layer 137 through the first glass plate 136. Finally, after the liquid crystal layer 137 processes the light, users can watch the images displayed by the display module through the second glass plate 138.
  • As shown in FIG. 5 which is a stereoscopic view showing the cover of the invention. The cover 110 of the invention can further include a hinge module 106. The hinge module 106 mainly includes a bracket 106 a and a pivotal portion 106 b. The bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 can be fixed to the inner surface of the cover 110 by glue 2, wherein the inner side of the cover 110 is adjacent to the second side of the display module and the glue 2 includes epoxy. The pivotal portion 106 b of the hinge module 106 can be connected to the bracket 106 a. The hinge 108 can be pivotally connected to the pivotal portion 106 b. Therefore, the hinge 108 can be mounted to the cover 110 by the hinge module 106 that is fixed to the cover 110. With different designs of products, the pivotal portion 106 b and the bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 can be mounted to each other by a fixed method, which is a thermal binding method, a screw fastening method, or a riveting method, so as to make the pivotal portion 106 b able to pivotally connect the hinge 108. In order to provide enough mounting strength to the hinge 108 when the hinge 108 is forced in operation, the pivotal portion 106 b and the hinge 108 are generally connected to each other by the screw fastening method. Generally, the bracket 106 a is adjacent to but does not contact the second side of the panel module, so as to prevent the display device from the defeat of white spots after being assembled.
  • It can be seen that because the hinge module 106 is mounted to the cover 110 by gluing the bracket 106 a to the cover 110, the thickness of the hinge module 106 in the display device 100 (i.e., the space between the cover 110 and the display module) is equal to the thickness of the bracket 106 a. The length of screws that are applied to mount the hinge module 106 to cover 110 in prior arts is about 4 mm, so the thickness of the display devices in the prior arts cannot be reduced effectively. Relatively, the bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 of the embodiment is plate-shaped, and a range of the thickness of the bracket 106 a is only 0.8 mm-1.0 mm. Therefore, the bracket 106 a that is fixed to the cover 110 will not influence the whole strength of the display device 100 and can easily reduce the thickness of the display device 100.
  • As shown in FIG. 5, the cover 110 of the display device 100 of the embodiment can further include four rims 100 a, and the rims 100 a can be classified to be two pairs and surround the cover 110. Generally, the two pairs of the rims 100 a can be classified into long rims and short rims, and each pair of the rims 100 a are parallel to each other. The bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 can be substantially parallel to the rims 100 a, and the rims 100 a are generally, but not limited to, the short rims and can be elastically changed according to the requirements of designing or limitations of manufacturing. Because the hinge module 106 of the embodiment is not mounted to the cover 110 by the screw fastening method, the length of the bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 can be longer than half the length of one of the rims 100 a so as to increase the mounting stability between the hinge module 106 and the cover 110. In other words, if the length of the bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 becomes longer, the gluing area and range between the bracket 106 a and the cover 110 relatively increase, and thus the mounting stability between the bracket 106 a and the cover 110 can be increased. When the cover 110 is forced, the force can be transmitted to the hinge 108 via the bracket 106 a and the pivotal portion 106 b, so that the hinge 108 can rotate together with the cover 110 relative to an object. So, the width of the portion of the bracket 106 a that is adjacent to the hinge 108 is very important. Because the portion of the bracket 106 a is the interface via which the force is transmitted from the cover 110 to the hinge 108, the portion of the bracket 106 a bears larger force than other portions. If the width of the portion of the bracket 106 a is longer, the mounting capability of the bracket 106 a is also larger, so as to prevent the defeat that the hinge module 106 separates from the cover 110 during the operation of the hinge 108. Generally, the width of the bracket 106 a is directly proportional to a desired torque of the hinge 108 and the width of the bracket is approximately longer than 25 mm, wherein the width of the bracket 106 a is the width of the end of the bracket that is adjacent to the hinge 108. The desired torque of the hinge 108 is the minimum force that the hinge 108 is necessarily loaded during operation.
  • The cover 110 of the embodiment further includes a reinforcing plate 110 a. The reinforcing plate 110 a of the cover 110 can be fixed to the inner side of the cover 110, just like the hinge module 106 does. The reinforcing plate 110 a can be substantially perpendicular to the bracket 106 a, but the configuration between the reinforcing plate 110 a and the bracket 106 a is not limited to this and can be elastically changed according to the requirements of designing or limitations of manufacturing. In order to increase the whole stiffness of the display device 100, the reinforcing plate 110 a of the display device 100 and the bracket 106 a of the hinge module 106 can also be connected to each other. In other words, the reinforcing plate 110 a and the bracket 106 a can be integrally formed according to the requirements of product design and then fixed to the inner side of the cover 110 to reinforce the strength of the cover 110. In order to take the weight of the display device 100 into consideration, the reinforcing plate 110 a that is fixed to the cover 110 can be, but not limited to, made from an aluminum plate of which the thickness is 0.6 mm.
  • When the electronic device has a host housing, the display device 100 of the invention can be connected to the host housing by the hinge 108, so as to make the display device 100 to rotate relative to the host housing. When the display device 100 covers on the host housing, the reinforcing plate 100 a on the cover 110 of the display device 100 will correspond to the palm raise of the host housing, so as to increase the supporting strength between the display device 100 and the host housing and prevent the display device 100 or the host housing from being damaged because users press improper locations.
  • In another embodiment of the invention, the structures of the invention are applied to a display device that does not have backlight. The biggest difference between the embodiment and the former embodiment is that the display device of the embodiment can achieve the effect of evenly emitting light without the backlight module. If the display device that does not have backlight is an OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display device, the organic light-emitting layer is generally packaged in the glass module 130 in FIG. 4 to substitute for the liquid crystal layer 137. Therefore, the panel module only includes the glass module 130, and the supporting member on the frame 120 can support the panel module just by one supporting portion. When the panel module is fixed to the supporting portion of the frame 120, the frame 120 will be the only one structure that supports the panel module.
  • According to the foregoing recitations of the embodiments of the invention, it can be seen that the invention make a panel module and a frame to be fixed to each other to form a display module, so the frame is the only structure that supports the frame. Finally, a cover is mounted to the frame to form a display device. The cover includes a hinge module, and the hinge module can be fixed to the cover and connects a hinge, so that the hinge can connect the display device and a host housing to each other. Because the hinge module is fixed to the cover, the thickness of the display device can be greatly reduced, and the mounting strength of the display device against the rotation of the hinge can be maintained. The display module is also mounted to the cover without screws, so the cover does not need to provide space to be fastened by screws so as to have a thinner thickness and the display module does not need to be formed screw holes so as to have a larger display region.
  • It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications and variations can be made to the structure of the present invention without departing from the scope or spirit of the invention. In view of the foregoing, it is intended that the present invention cover modifications and variations of this invention provided they fall within the scope of the following claims.
