Data driver circuits for a display in which a data current is generated responsive to the selection of a subset of a plurality of reference currents based on a gamma signal and methods of operating the same
Number of patents in Portfolio can not be more than 2000
A data driver for a display includes a reference current generator that is configured to generate L gray scale reference currents, the L gray scale reference currents being associated with non-zero gray scale levels, a gamma selection module that is configured to select M gamma reference currents from the L gray scale reference currents responsive to a gamma signal, a gamma voltage generator that is configured to generate a zero gray scale level gamma reference voltage, and a data current generator that is configured to generate a data current responsive to a selected one of the M gamma reference currents or the zero gray scale level gamma reference voltage responsive to a color signal.

FIRST PUBLISHED PATENT APPLICATION
US Patent Application No: 2007/0040,773

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.
