Abstract

Large screen Liquid Crystal Displays or LCD's for use in PC's, office workstations, or computer terminals require VLSI chip packaging to enable electrical control of the individual picture elements. Such elements form an array, with individual cells placed on a fine pitch. One technique that is used to bring digital information from the control circuits to the picture elements is to use flexible cables. This solution is not compact and requires the use of bulky cable connectors.
