ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 11 -- GM Global Technology Operations, Detroit, has been assigned a patent (8,351,008) developed by Peter Brandt, Aschaffenburg, Germany, Heiko Charle, Russelsheim, Germany, and Wilfried Schulz, Eppstein, Germany, for a "liquid crystal display with several drive segments."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A liquid crystal display is provided with several drive segments, between which at least one intermediate surface without drive segments is situated. Such liquid crystal displays are used, in particular, for displaying information contents of low information density, for example, as numerical display elements. This realizes, among other things, a simple and cost-efficient improvement of the electrostatic properties and the legibility, namely also under unfavorable light conditions. For this purpose, the intermediate surface is largely provided with at least one conductive auxiliary layer and a high-frequency connection between the auxiliary layer and a shielding potential is produced."
The patent application was filed on June 30, 2010 (12/827,777). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,351,008&OS=8,351,008&RS=8,351,008
