  • Patent number: 11094254
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a current-driven display device employing an internal compensation scheme and capable of displaying a favorable image with no occurrence of a bright point not included in the original display content. A voltage Vg at a gate terminal of a drive transistor M1 is initialized in a pixel circuit 15 of an organic EL display device before a voltage of a data signal line Dj is written to a holding capacitor C1 via the drive transistor M1 in a diode-connected state. At this time, an initialization voltage Vini is supplied to the gate terminal via a first initialization transistor M4 and a threshold compensation transistor M3. In this manner, a path for initializing the gate terminal of the drive transistor M1 is formed by the first initialization transistor M4 and the threshold compensation transistor M3 connected in series to each other, thereby preventing a voltage reduction at the gate terminal due to leakage current in an off-state transistor.

    Abstract: A display control method having dynamic backlight adjusting mechanism is provided that includes the steps outlined below. A backlight control signal having a backlight period that is 1/N times of a Vsync period of a Vsync signal is generated. A first Vsync period end time after the Vsync period switches from a first period length to a second period length is calculated. A first backlight period end time after the first Vsync period end time is determined as a transition period start time. A time difference between the transition period start time and the first Vsync period end time is calculated. A transition period length between the second period length and the time difference is calculated and divided into interval lengths each equals to a third period length. The backlight control signal operated to have the third period length is generated within the transition period.
