Abstract

A plasma display panel comprises a pair of glass plates, each plate comprising a conductor array with a layer of refractory dielectric insulating the conductors from the gas. Typically the conductor arrays are terminated on the edge portion or apron of the panel. A cost-effective method of packaging a plasma display panel in which relatively short boards or cables, populated with small, surface-mounted chip carriers, are connected directly to the apron of the panel is constructed as follows:
