Abstract

A novel voltage-programmed pixel circuit using hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin-film transistors (TFTs) for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays is proposed. The threshold voltage shift $(\Delta V_{T})$ of the drive TFT caused by electrical stress is compensated by an incremental gate-to-source voltage $(\Delta V_{GS})$ generated by utilizing the $\Delta V_{T}$ -dependent charge transfer from the drive TFT to a TFT-based metal–insulator–semiconductor (MIS) capacitor. A second MIS capacitor is used to inject positive charge to the gate of the drive TFT to improve the OLED drive current. The non-ideality of the $\Delta V_T$ -compensation, TFT overlap capacitance, programming speed, and OLED degradation are discussed. The effectiveness of the proposed pixel circuit is verified by simulation results.
