Abstract

This paper presents an ac driving pixel circuit for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays, which is composed of one driving thin-film transistor (TFT), three switching TFTs and one capacitor. The proposed pixel circuit can not only make OLED work at the ac driving mode, but also effectively compensate for the threshold-voltage shift of the driving TFT and the degradation of OLED. Simulation results show that the nonuniformity of the proposed pixel circuit is significantly reduced ($< {{10}}\%$) with an average value of 4.2% compared with that of the conventional 2T1C pixel circuit, and thus, the brightness uniformity of AMOLED displays can be enhanced. Moreover, a high contrast ratio can be achieved by the proposed pixel circuit due to no light emitting except for the emission period, as well as a relatively high aperture ratio due to a small number of components.
