A New AC-Driving Method for Active-Matrix OLED Displays
The lifetime of organic light-emitting devices can be influenced by the OLED material and structure, electrode material, driving mode and so on. Among all these factors, OLED driving method has been regarded as one of the most important factors, and it is well known that ac-driving mode improves the lifetime of OLED, especially pulse-driving mode with a reversed-biased voltage on OLED. In this article, a new ac-driving mode for Active-Matrix OLED is proposed on basic fabrication of two-TFT current source pixel circuit. Simulation has been done on the pixel and 1×4 matrix circuits, and simulation results have demonstrated that OLED is in reversed-biased state during recovery time. At last, a practical peripheral circuit that can provide achieve an ac-driving mode has been designed.
