  • Patent number: 11127812
    Abstract: A single metal layer device, such as a display or sensor, comprises a substrate and a patterned metal layer. The patterned metal layer forms a two-dimensional array of spatially separated column line segments that each extend only partially across the display substrate in a column direction and forms a one-dimensional array of row lines extending across the display substrate in a row direction different from the column direction. The row lines and column line segments are electrically separate in the patterned metal layer. Spatially separated electrical jumpers are disposed on the display substrate and electrically connect pairs of column line segments adjacent in the column direction. Each electrical jumper has an independent jumper substrate independent of and separate from the display substrate. In certain embodiments, spatially separated light-emitting pixel circuits are disposed on a display substrate and are electrically connected to at least one row line and one column line.

  • Patent number: 11073712
    Abstract: Systems and methods for through-display imaging. A display includes an imaging aperture defined through an opaque backing. An optical imaging array is aligned with the aperture. Above the aperture, the display is arranged and/or configured for increased optical transmittance. For example, a region of the display above, or adjacent to, the imaging aperture can be formed with a lower pixel density than other regions of the display, thereby increasing inter-pixel distance (e.g., pitch) and increasing an area through which light can traverse the display to reach the optical imaging array.

  • Patent number: 11069293
    Abstract: A luminance controlling unit includes a luminance controller that controls luminance of a pixel array including pixels each including a current-driven self-luminescent element. The luminance controller performs, on the basis of an image signal, a dynamic control of a duty ratio of a voltage pulse and a potential difference between a first voltage and a second voltage. The first voltage is outputted from a first voltage source adjacent to an anode of the corresponding self-luminescent element, and the second voltage is outputted from a second voltage source adjacent to a cathode of the corresponding self-luminescent element. The duty ratio is directed to controlling of light emission and light extinction of the self-luminescent element.

  • Patent number: 11056549
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an active matrix organic light emitting diode panel where a color shift does not occur at an edge of a display area. A color shift does not occur at the edge of the display area in an AMOLED panel proposed by an embodiment of the present disclosure to avoid color shift phenomenon at the edge of a display area. So red, green, and blue (R, G, and B) pixel units that are not arranged in a regular pattern at a non-standard pixel structure and a corresponding anode material layer are in a floating state. So the color shift phenomenon will not occur. When the pixel unit of the non-standard pixel structure receives an image display control signal, the color shift phenomenon may occur due to the inability to correspondingly display a corresponding image corresponding to the image display control signal to display the screen normally.

  • Patent number: 11054710
    Abstract: A display device capable of performing image processing is provided. Each pixel is provided with a memory circuit, and desired correction data is held in the memory circuit. The correction data is calculated in an external device and written into each pixel. The correction data is added to image data owing to capacitive coupling, and the resulting data is supplied to a display element. Thus, a corrected image can be displayed with the display element. The correction enables image upconversion or can compensate for an image quality reduction due to characteristics variations of transistors included in pixels.
