In order to reduce a circuit scale such as a brightness adjustment circuit or the number of pins in an IC chip, in the brightness adjustment circuit, a brightness adjusted video signal (internal video signal) output from an analog signal synthesis circuit or a D/A converter is input to one input terminal of a switch and a sample/hold circuit. The sample/hold circuit holds a voltage of a level in accordance with the pedestal level of the internal video signal at a timing in accordance with a sampling pulse in synchronization with the internal video signal. A clamp circuit clamps the pedestal level of an external video signal in accordance with a clamp pulse, using the voltage held by the sample/hold circuit as the reference voltage, and input it to the other input terminal. The output terminal of the switch is connected to an amplifier.
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.
