A drive apparatus for a plasma display panel useing a charge recovery circuit 12 that re-uses a recovered electrical charge, the drive apparatus comprising: a brightness detection means 16, 17 for detecting a brightness so as to obtain screen brightness information; and a charge recovery timing control means 4 for controlling a charge recovery period T from a time at which a charge recovery operation of the charge recovery circuit 12 starts to a time of fixing to a sustaining potential or a ground potential, wherein the charge recovery timing control means 4 controls the charge recovery period of the charge recovery circuit 4 in response to the brightness information obtained by the brightness detection means 16, 17.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
