We have demonstrated the two types of 42 inch Plasma Addressed Liquid Crystal
(PALC) display at various exhibitions including the Japan Electronics Show '98.
First type is suitable for VGA, and second type is suitable for HD. We have
developed the Axially Symmetric aligned Micro-cell Mode (ASM) technology in
order to achieve wide viewing angle of PALC display. The PALC display has many
advantages such as wide viewing angle, high contrast, high brightness, and low
power consumption, over the other large-sized flat panel displays. This paper
reports the characteristic of PALC display, relevant technology, and the block
diagram of PALC display system.
