  • Publication number: 20220101772
    Abstract: An electronic device may include an electronic display panel having multiple display pixels for displaying an image based on analog voltage signals. The electronic device may also include interpolation circuitry to generate the analog voltage signals based on digital image data corresponding to the image. The interpolation circuitry may also receive analog reference voltages and interpolate between sets of the analog reference voltages to generate intermediate voltages, which may be a part of the analog voltage signals. Interpolating between the sets analog reference voltages may include performing a first level interpolation of a first set of the analog reference voltages to generate a first intermediate voltage and performing a second level interpolation of a second set of the analog reference voltages to generate a second intermediate voltage, wherein the first level interpolation is different from the second level interpolation.

  • Publication number: 20220101790
    Abstract: Systems and methods may reduce or eliminate image artifacts due to a defective pixel of an electronic display. An electronic display may include pixels that respectively include a self-emissive element, pixel drive circuitry that supplies a pixel drive current to drive the self-emissive element, and signal routing circuitry that reduces or eliminates a visual artifact due to a defective pixel among the pixels. The signal routing circuitry may do this by turning off the self-emissive element, supplying image data from the pixel drive circuitry to a first adjacent pixel, or receiving image data from other pixel drive circuitry from the first adjacent pixel or a second adjacent pixel.

  • Publication number: 20210357063
    Abstract: An integrated touchscreen can include light emitting diodes or organic light emitting diodes (LEDs/OLEDs), display chiplets and touch chiplets disposed in a visible area of the integrated touch screen. For example, the LEDs/OLEDs, display chiplets and touch chiplets can be placed on a substrate by a micro-transfer tool. The integrated touchscreen can also include electrodes disposed in the visible area of the integrated touch screen. The electrodes can be capable of providing display functionality via the one or more display chiplets during display operation (e.g., operating as cathode terminals of the LEDs during the display operation) and capable of providing touch functionality via the touch chiplets during touch operation (e.g., touch node electrodes can be formed from groups of the electrodes and sensed). In some examples, the touch node electrodes can be formed and coupled to touch chiplets via the display chiplets.
