Image Number 10 for United States Patent #7619590.
A plasma display panel includes scan electrode lines, sustain electrode lines and data electrode lines formed within a display area. A common electrode line is formed along a side of the device at a non-display area and is commonly connected to the sustain electrode lines. A first pad portion is formed at a non-display area on a side of the device, and wires carrying scan signals are connected to the scan electrode lines at the first pad portion. A second pad portion is also formed at a non-display area on either a side edge, an upper edge or a bottom edge of the device, and a conductive path carries a sustain signal to the common line through the second pad portion.
