  • Patent number: 8704748
    Abstract: A gate driving circuit and a display device having the same, a pull-up unit pulls up a current gate signal by using a first clock signal during a first period of one frame. A pull-up driver coupled to the pull-up unit receives a carry signal from one of the previous stages to turn on the pull-up unit. A pull-up unit receives a gate signal from one of the next stages, discharges the current gate signal to an off voltage level, and turns off the pull-up unit. A holder holds the current gate signal at the voltage level. An inverter turns on/off the holder in response to a first clock signal. A ripple preventer has a source and a gate coupled in common to an output terminal of the pull-up unit and a drain coupled to an input terminal of the inverter, and includes a ripple preventing diode for preventing a ripple from being applied to the inverter.

    Abstract: A display apparatus has a pixel including a main pixel connected to a main gate line and a data line, and a sub-pixel connected to a sub-gate line and the data line. A main gate driver outputs a main gate pulse to the main gate line during a time period 1H. A sub-gate driver receives the main gate pulse and outputs a sub-gate pulse to the sub-gate line during a first portion of time period 1H. The data driver applies a sub-pixel voltage to the data line during the first portion of time period 1H and applies the main pixel voltage to the data line during a second portion of time period 1H.
