IEC 61988-1-2003 pdf – Plasma display panels – Part 1: Terminology and letter symbols.
1 Scope This part of IEC 61988 gives the preferred terms, their definitions and symbols for colour AC plasma display panels (AC PDP); with the object of using the same terminology when publications are prepared in different countries. Guidance on the technology is provided in the annexes. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. IEC 61988-2-1, Plasma display panels – Part 2-1: Measuring methods – Optical IEC 61988-2-2, Plasma display panels – Part 2-2: Measuring methods – Optoelectrical CIE 15.2:1986, Colorimetry, 2 nd Edition 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following definitions apply. 3.1 AC PDP NOTE See AC plasma display panel. 3.2 AC plasma display panel AC PDP plasma display panel in which the gas discharge region is insulated from the electrodes that are driven with AC voltage pulses 3.3 address bias Vba data bias common voltage applied to all address electrodes during addressing 3.4 address cycle period time interval between initiation of the closest spaced successive address pulses
3.5 address discharge discharge that changes the state of a PDP subpixel 3.6 address electrode data electrode electrode, orthogonal to the scan electrode, that is used in driving the subpixels with the image data 3.7 address pulse data pulse incremental voltage pulse applied to a single address (data) electrode for addressing, to select a subpixel according to an image to be displayed NOTE See scan pulse. 3.8 address voltage Va data voltage amplitude of the voltage pulses applied to the address (data) electrode during addressing (excludes the address bias on the electrode) 3.9 address while display method AWD method grey scale drive technique that addresses only a portion of the pixels of the panel in any time within a sustain period NOTE See also ADS. 3.10 addressability number of pixels in the horizontal and vertical directions, that can have their luminance changed NOTE Usually expressed in the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels. This term is not synonymous with resolution. See resolution. 3.11 addressing setting or changing the state of a subpixel with an address pulse 3.12 ADS method address, display-period separation method grey scale drive technique that consists of addressing all the pixels in the panel in one time period and sustaining all the pixels in the panel in a separate time period 3.13 ageing manufacturing process consisting of operating the panel under conditions that stabilize its performance
3.14 annealing process of heating the glass above its annealing point and cooling at a controlled rate to minimize dimensional changes during subsequent high temperature cycles 3.15 anode positively charged surface of a device that collects electrons from the discharge NOTE In an AC PDP, the cathode and anode exchange their roles on alternate half-cycles. 3.16 aspect ratio ratio of screen width to screen height 3.17 auto power control APC circuit means to control the peak and/or average power of the display 3.18 auxiliary anode anode in a DC PDP whose discharge contributes to supply priming particles to ignite a discharge in a cell 3.19 back plate rear plate plate furthest from the viewer 3.20 back-filling NOTE See filling. 3.21 bake NOTE See bakeout, baking. 3.22 bakeout high temperature processing of a vacuum system and/or PDP to assist in achieving low pressures 3.23 baking high temperature process used to evaporate water and decompose organic materials NOTE Baking is used to clean the parts by dispersing unwanted material into the atmosphere. 3.24 barrier rib rib that separates the cells of the panel, electrically, optically and physically NOTE The barrier ribs may extend from the front plate to the back plate and control the spacing between the plates.
