  • Patent number: 10672337
    Abstract: An object of the disclosure is to achieve a stable display quality without an effect of variation in temperature in a display device including a display element driven by an electric current. The display device is provided with a thermistor as a temperature detector detecting an ambient temperature. A scanning signal amplitude controller changes the voltage level of a gate low voltage in accordance with temperature indicated by temperature data acquired by the thermistor. An in-panel driver controller gives, to a gate driver, a gate clock signal of which the voltage level on a high level side is set at the voltage level of a gate high voltage and the voltage level on a low level side is set at the voltage level of the gate low voltage. The gate driver outputs a scanning signal on the basis of the gate clock signal.
