Title
(EN) ELECTRONIC DEVICES WITH FLEXIBLE DISPLAYS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ÉLECTRONIQUES AYANT DES DISPOSITIFS D'AFFICHAGE SOUPLES
Abstract
(EN)
Electronic devices may be provided that contain flexible displays and internal components. An internal component may be positioned under the flexible display. The internal component may be an output device such as a speaker that transmits sound through the flexible display or an actuator that deforms the display in a way that is sensed by a user. The internal component may also be a microphone or pressure sensor that receives sound or pressure information through the flexible display. Structural components may be used to permanently or temporarily deform the flexible display to provide tactile feedback to a user of the device. Electronic devices may be provided with concave displays or convex displays formed from one or more flexible layers including a flexible display layer. Portions of the flexible display may be used as speaker membranes for display-based speaker structures.

L'invention porte sur des dispositifs électroniques, qui contiennent des dispositifs d'affichage souples et des composants internes. Un composant interne peut être positionné sous le dispositif d'affichage souple. Le composant interne peut être un dispositif de sortie tel qu'un haut-parleur qui transmet un son à travers le dispositif d'affichage souple ou un actionneur qui déforme le dispositif d'affichage d'une façon qui est détectée par un utilisateur. Le composant interne peut également être un microphone ou un capteur de pression qui reçoit une information de son ou de pression par l'intermédiaire du dispositif d'affichage souple. Des composants structurels peuvent être utilisés pour déformer de façon permanente ou temporaire le dispositif d'affichage souple afin de fournir une rétroaction tactile à un utilisateur du dispositif. Des dispositifs électroniques peuvent comporter des dispositifs d'affichage concaves ou des dispositifs d'affichage convexes formés à partir d'une ou de plusieurs couches souples constituant une couche d'affichage souple. Des parties du dispositif d'affichage souple peuvent être utilisées comme membranes de haut-parleur pour des structures de haut-parleur basées sur un dispositif d'affichage.
