Abstract

See full text

A drive method of a plasma display panel is disclosed by which prescribed luminance is obtained when display load amount is large, and no luminance saturation is generated when the display load amount is small. This is a method of driving a plasma display panel by which luminescence of sub-fields at prescribed gradations is obtained by employing n sustaining pulses, and the time from the start of charge recovery of the sustaining pulses to the fixation of the output line to a sustaining potential and the time to the fixation to the ground potential are made variable.
