  • Publication number: 20180294286
    Abstract: The invention allows formation of LTPS TFTs and TAOS TFTs on the same substrate. The invention provides a display device including a substrate having a display area in which pixels are formed. The pixels include a first TFT made of a TAOS. The drain of the first TFT is formed of first LTPS 112. The source of the first TFT is formed of second LTPS 113. The first LTPS 112 is connected to a first electrode 106 via a first through-hole 108 formed in an insulating film 105 covering the first TFT. The second LTPS 113 is connected to a second electrode 107 via a second through-hole 108 formed in the insulating film 105 covering the first TFT.
