Abstract

Disclosed is a mounting method for a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) module using a newly designed bracket in order to make the LCD physical size shrink. This bracket enables a compact design of the LCD by keeping the module thickness mechanical strength of the LCD module. Also, this bracket enables the LDC thickness to be less than 7mm thick, as compared to using a plastic insert for screws.

Screw Space Saving for Shrink Packaging Liquid Crystal Display

      Disclosed is a mounting method for a Liquid Crystal Display
(LCD) module using a newly designed bracket in order to make the LCD
physical size shrink.  This bracket enables a compact design of the
LCD by keeping the module thickness mechanical strength of the LCD
module.  Also, this bracket enables the LDC thickness to be less than
7mm thick, as compared to using a plastic insert for screws.

      Fig. 1 shows the mounting LCD module using a unique
bracket.  The unique bracket is put into a slit between the backlight
plastic part (frame) side and sheet metal bezel side.  This slit is
located between TABs (Fig. 2).  The bracket is latched by plastic
hooks in order to remain on the LCD module.  It is easily replaceable
in case  of rework and customer requirement which use different types
of screws.
