Abstract

Gas panels require that specific waveforms be applied to them to properly fulfill their data retention and display functions. These requisite waveforms are typically generated by separate circuits which produce the sustain, high voltage regulation, and write/erase functions. This article describes a method of accomplishing both the sustain and high voltage regulation functions in a single circuit, and with a single output transistor.
