Abstract

The AC plasma display technology is a memory technology. Because of this characteristic of the technology, the maximum size, or maximum information content of the screen, is not limited by the device's luminance-voltage characteristic as is the case for refresh display devices, but is limited only by manufacturability considerations. This article describes the use of these capabilities to provide copies of displayed data. The plasma gas panel is an all-points-addressable device in which the display cells, located between the orthogonal conductor arrays, are individually and selectively addressable. An example of this technology is disclosed in U.S. Patent 4,200,868. Fig. 1 shows a plasma gas panel display 10 housed in a cabinet 12.
