July 23, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- AU Optronics Corporation (Hsin-Chu, TW) has been issued patent number 8773610, according to news reporting originating out of Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews editors.

The patent's inventors are Chang, Chia-Hsin (Hsin-Chu, TW); Chiu, Lin-Wei (Hsin-Chu, TW); Hsu, Po-Chun (Hsin-Chu, TW).

This patent was filed on February 16, 2009 and was published online on July 8, 2014.

From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "The present invention relates to a liquid crystal display. More particularly, the present invention relates to a frame set of a liquid crystal display.

"With the progress in technology and the development in media, users require a high quality in seeing and hearing equipment. Liquid crystal displays (LCD) have many advantages over conventional types of displays, such as cathode ray tube (CRT), including having high display quality, having small volume, being lightweight, and having low driving voltage and low power consumption. Hence, LCDs are widely used in small portable televisions, mobile telephones, video recording units, notebook computers, desktop monitors, projector televisions and so on, and they have gradually replaced the conventional CRT as a mainstream display unit."

Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "An aspect of the present invention is related to an LCD that uses a pin to fix the printed circuit board in the plastic frame.

"The present invention discloses a liquid crystal display that includes a plastic frame, a printed circuit board, a pin, a slot, a first constraining part and a liquid crystal panel. The printed circuit board has at least one hole therein. The pin is disposed on the plastic frame. The slot is formed on the pin and extends along the major axis of the pin. The first constraining part is disposed on the side surface of the pin for constraining the printed circuit board between the first constraining part and the plastic frame. The liquid crystal panel is held by the plastic frame and electrically connected to the printed circuit board.

"Another aspect of the present invention is related to a frame set to cooperate with the above liquid crystal display.

"The frame set of the present invention includes plastic frame, a printed circuit board, a pin, a slot, a first constraining part. The printed circuit board has at least one hole therein. The pin is disposed on the plastic frame. The slot is formed on the pin and extends along the major axis of the pin. The first constraining part is disposed on the side surface of the pin for constraining the printed circuit board between the first constraining part and the plastic frame."
