Default Re: How a plasma display panel (PDP) works

Very nice treatise on PDP and driver.

I always thought of PDP as millions of fluorescent tubes on end. I think about ways these can fail (kind of a pessimist, I suppose) and envision how lighting tubes turn black at the ends. This increases load on the ballasts which not only will be the failure of the tube but soon, the end for the ballasts.

Is this in any way analogous to PDPs? Or does such carbonization not happen in the PDP cells?

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
