Abstract

In a plasma display block operation wherein multiple lines in a plasma display panel are simultaneously erased in a non-selective erase operation and then conditioned individually with a selective write, the data in the horizontal shift register must different for the two operations. To reduce the time required to shift the entire register, shifting is done on a module basis, thus shortening the time for all shifting.
