Structure de bus conductrice pour reseau de modulateur interférométrique

Leitfähige Busstruktur für interferometrische Modulatoranordnung

Conductive bus structure for interferometric modulator array

Abstract

Embodiments of an interferometric modulator are disclosed having various enhancements and features including a conductive bus. In certain embodiments, the interferometric modulator has a first conductive layer (1302) suspended over a second electrode layer (902). In certain embodiments, a second conductive layer (904) is provided over the first conductive layer. One of the first and/or second conductive buses may further connect to the first electrode layer and/or the second electrode layer. Other disclosed features can be incorporated into embodiments of the interferometric modulator to improve response time, power consumption, and image resolution.
