This letter presents a novel integrated hydrogenated amorphous silicon thin-film transistor (a-Si:H TFT) gate driver circuit using ac driving (33% duty) to prevent the floating of row lines and reduce the bias voltage of pull-down TFTs to suppress the threshold voltage (V TH) shift of a-Si:H TFTs. The V TH shift of the TFTs in this design is reduced by 49.93% from that achieved using the 25%-duty ac-driving structure. In a reliability test, the new circuit operates stably at a high temperature (T = 60°C) for more than 240 h.
