Abstract

This work proposes a new pixel circuit of low-Temperature polycrystalline-silicon thin-film transistors (LTPS-TFTs) for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays, which combines parallel addressing scheme, current-programmed, and voltage-programmed methods. The proposed pixel circuit is used to compensate for the threshold voltage variations of driving TFT, and the current-resistance voltage drop in power line (I-R drop). Moreover, the proposed pixel circuit can avoid flicker and extend compensation time. The simulation results demonstrate that the relative current error rates are less than 5% and 1% as the variations of threshold voltage and I-R drop are ±0.5 V and -0.5 V, respectively.
