The assignee for this patent, patent number 8525964, is
Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to an array substrate, a method of manufacturing the array substrate, a display panel having the array substrate, and a liquid crystal display apparatus having the array substrate. More particularly, the present invention relates to an array substrate capable of enhancing a viewing angle and an aperture ratio, a method of manufacturing the array substrate, a display panel having the array substrate, and a liquid crystal display apparatus having the array substrate.
"Generally, a liquid crystal display ('LCD') device has a narrower viewing angle than that of a cathode ray tube ('CRT') display device. In order to widen the viewing angle, a patterned vertical alignment ('PVA') mode LCD device, a multi-domain first sub vertical alignment ('MVA') mode LCD device, an in-plane switching ('IPS') mode LCD device, etc. have been developed recently.
"The PVA mode LCD device includes an upper substrate, a lower substrate, and a liquid crystal layer positioned there between and having liquid crystal molecules arranged vertically with respect to the upper and lower substrates. According to the PVA mode LCD device, the pixel electrodes on the lower substrate and the common electrode on the upper substrate include an opening pattern. Viewing angle is widened due to fringe fields generated by the pixel electrodes and the common electrode."
In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "The present invention provides an array substrate capable of enhancing a viewing angle and an aperture ratio.
"The present invention also provides a method of manufacturing the above-mentioned array substrate.
"The present invention also provides a display panel having the above-mentioned array substrate.
"The present invention also provides an LCD apparatus having the above-mentioned array substrate.
"In exemplary embodiments of an array substrate according to the present invention, the array substrate includes a switching device, a storage capacitor, and a voltage-dividing capacitor. The switching device is formed in a pixel region defined by two gate lines adjacent to each other and two data lines adjacent to each other. The storage capacitor is electrically connected to the switching device. The voltage-dividing capacitor is disposed between the storage capacitor and one of the gate lines. The voltage-dividing capacitor is electrically connected to the storage capacitor.
"For example, a capacitance of the storage capacitor is bigger than a capacitance of the voltage-dividing capacitor.
