Description

Electroluminescent display and driving method thereof

Technical field

The present invention relates to a kind of display and driving method thereof, relate in particular to a kind of electroluminescent display and driving method thereof.

Background technology

Electroluminescent display is to utilize the brightness of electroluminescence (EL) element to change to come display image.In recent years, existing resistance active display is compared in the development of the development of EL element, especially organic electroluminescent LED (OLED), has more low energy consumption and more frivolous characteristics under same brightness.Therefore, electroluminescent display will be applied in the various big-and-middle undersized terminal presentation facilities more and more widely.

The display structure of active el display as shown in Figure 1, active el display has the pixel that the capable m of n is listed as into matrix distribution; Gate drivers 101 is used for gate line (G1, G2 ... Gn) drive gating; Source electrode driver 102 is used for data line (D1, D2 ... Dm) drive; Gate drivers 101 and source electrode driver 102 are driven by time schedule controller 103, and pixel cell is made up of the zone that intersects between gate line and the data line, and forms matrix distribution in active el display; In the zone of this intersection, there are two thin film transistor (TFT)s (TFT), when the residing gate line of TFT during by gating, the data-signal of data line charges into memory capacitance, and keeps this data-signal by memory capacitance; This data-signal will be controlled the on state current of the TFT that is connected with EL, and the brightness that this on state current will be controlled EL shows to realize GTG.

The active el display drive principle of prior art as shown in Figure 2.In conjunction with Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 its driving method is described as follows: 1) when the sweep signal that applies on the gate lines G 1 when VGL switches to VGH, the T that keeps at sweep signal VGH is in the time, the second thin film transistor (TFT) Q11-2 is by gating; The data-signal VD1 of data line D1 input gives memory capacitance C11 charging; Memory capacitance C11 keeps the on state current of data-signal VD1 control the first film transistor Q11-1; The demonstration of this pixel cell is finished in the brightness of the on state current decision light-emitting component D11 of the first film transistor Q11-1.Same, with light-emitting component D11 will be with the brightness of other EL of delegation according to gate lines G 1 data line D2 imports to the Dm during by gating data-signal determine respectively.2) after gate lines G 1 is stopped gating, gate lines G 2 is by gating; Same, the brightness of the pixel that gate lines G 2 is expert at will be according to gate lines G 2 during by gating data line D1 determine respectively to the data-signal that Dm goes up input.3) in a frame time of display image, gate lines G 1 to Gn is successively by gating, and each pixel cell is finished the demonstration to a frame picture.In electroluminescent display, two TFT of its pixel cell are nTFT usually, and the magnitude of voltage of sweep signal VGL is less than 0, and the magnitude of voltage of sweep signal VGH is greater than 0, and data-signal VDm is also greater than 0.Therefore, in electroluminescent display, only there is positive voltage to be applied to the TFT of control EL element electric current, easily cause the threshold voltage skew of TFT, thereby the luminance degradation and the life-span of causing electro-luminescence display device shortens; In addition, reservior capacitor only is filled with positive voltage and does not discharge, and also can cause performance degradation and shortens life-span of electro-luminescence display device.
