为更进一步阐述本发明为达成预定发明目的所采取的技术手段及功效,以下结合附图及较佳实施例,对依据本发明提出的可挠性显示面板及其制造方法其具体实施方式、方法、步骤、特征及其功效,详细说明如后。 To further elaborate the technical means and effects the present invention is predetermined to achieve the object of the invention taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings and the following preferred embodiments of flexible display panel and a manufacturing method thereof according to the present invention provides specific embodiments, the method steps, characteristics and efficacy, as described in detail later.

图1A为本发明的可挠性显示面板在第一实施例中处于暗态的剖面示意图,图1B则为本发明的可挠性显示面板在第一实施例中处于亮态的剖面示意图。 The flexible display panel of the present invention in FIG. 1A schematic cross-sectional view of the dark state in the first embodiment, FIG. 1B is a schematic cross-sectional bright state was flexible display panel according to the present invention in the first embodiment. 请参阅图1A与图1B所示,可挠性显示面板100包括可挠基板110、 多个电泳(electro-phoretic)像素单元120、多个电湿润(electro-wetting)像素单元130、透光保护层140以及驱动电路150。 Please refer to FIG. 1A and 1B, the flexible display panel 100 includes a flexible substrate 110, a plurality of electrophoresis (electro-phoretic) pixel units 120, a plurality of electro-wetting (electro-wetting) the pixel unit 130, the transparent protection layer 140, and a drive circuit 150. 其中,可挠基板110具有第一显示区域112、第二显示区域114以及非显示区域116。 Wherein, the flexible substrate 110 having a first display area 112, second display area 114 and non-display region 116. 电泳像素单元120 是配置于第一显示区域112内,而电湿润像素单元130则是配置于第二显示区域114内。 Electrophoretic pixel unit 120 is disposed in the first display area 112, the electrowetting pixel unit 130 is disposed in the second display area 114. 在此,为使图式较为筒洁,仅于第一显示区域112与第二显示区域114内分别绘示出一电泳像素单元120与一电湿润像素单元130。 Here, to make the drawings more cleaning cartridge, only the first display region 112 are painted with the second display area 114 shows an electrophoretic pixel unit 120 and a pixel unit 130 electrowetting.

在本实施例中,各个电泳像素单元120包括第一反射层122、电泳层124、第一像素电极(pixel electrode) 126以及第一薄膜晶体管(thin film transistor, TFT) 128。 In the present embodiment, each of the electrophoretic pixel cell 120 includes a first reflective layer 122, an electrophoretic layer 124, a first pixel electrode (pixel electrode) 126 and a first thin film transistor (thin film transistor, TFT) 128. 在各电泳像素单元120中,具有多个带电粒子129的电泳层124是配置于第一反射层122上方,第一像素电极126则是配置于第一反射层122与电泳层124之间,并与第一薄膜晶体管128电性连接。 In each of the electrophoretic pixel unit 120 having a plurality of charged-particle electrophoretic layer 129, 124 is disposed above the first reflective layer 122, a first pixel electrode 126 is disposed between the first reflective layer 122 and the electrophoretic layer 124, and 128 is electrically connected to the first thin film transistor. 其中,第一反射层122例如是与第一薄膜晶体管128中的栅极或源极/漏极(未绘示)在同一制程中一并形成于可挠基板110上。 Wherein the first reflective layer 122, for example, source / drain (not shown) together with the first thin film transistor 128 is formed in the gate or source in a same process on the flexible substrate 110.

本实施例的电泳层124例如是微杯式电泳层。 An electrophoretic layer 124 of the present embodiment, for example, a micro-cup electrophoretic layer. 具体来说,在各电泳像素单元120中,本实施例的电泳层l24包括微杯(microcup) 125、介电溶液127及多个带电粒子129,其中微杯125是用以承载介电溶液127及带电粒子129,且带电粒子129会因应电泳像素单元120中的电场而改变其在介电溶液127中的位置。 Specifically, in each of the electrophoretic pixel cell 120, the present embodiment comprises electrophoretic layer l24 embodiment microcups (Microcup) 125, 127 and a plurality of dielectric solution was charged particles 129, 125 which is used for carrying microcups dielectric 127 solution and 129, and the position of the charged particles 129 Hui Yinying charged particle electrophoretic pixel unit 120 changes the electric field in the dielectric 127 solution. 在本实施例中,这些带电粒子129包括电性相反的黑色带电粒子129b与白色带电粒子129w。 In the present embodiment, the charged particles 129 includes opposite electrically charged particles of black and white charged particles 129b 129w.

如图1A所示,在电泳像素单元120中,当黑色带电粒子129b因应电泳像素单元120中的电场往介电溶液127的表面移动时,此电泳像素单元120会吸收外部所入射的环境光,因而显示出暗态画面。 1A, in the electrophoretic pixel cell 120, when the black charged particle electrophoretic pixel unit 129b in response to an electric field in the dielectric 120 to the surface 127 was moved, the electrophoretic pixel cell 120 absorbs ambient light incident outside, thus the screen shows a dark state. 反之如图1B所示, 当白色带电粒子129w因应电泳像素单元120中的电场改变往介电溶液127 的表面移动时,则此电泳像素单元120可通过第一反射层122反射外部所入射的环境光,以显示出亮态画面。 1B, on the contrary, when the surface of the white charged particle electrophoretic pixel cell 129w response to an electric field changes in the dielectric 120 to 127 was moving, then the electrophoretic pixel unit 120 may first reflective layer 122 reflects external incident environment light, bright state to show the picture.

由于带电粒子129在介电溶液127中的位置是因应电泳像素单元120 中的电场改变而改变,因此在未改变电泳像素单元120的电场的情况下, 电泳像素单元120并不会改变其显示状态,甚至在关闭供给电泳像素单元120的电源后,其显示状态仍不会改变。 In the case since the position of the charged particles 129 in a dielectric solution 127 is in response to electrophoretic pixel cell field 120 changes to change, and therefore without changing electrophoretic pixel unit field 120, electrophoretic pixel unit 120 does not change its display state even after you turn off the power supply of the electrophoretic pixel unit 120, will not change its display state. 因此,只有在需要改变电泳像素单元120的显示状态时,才需要供其电源。 Accordingly, only necessary to change the display state of the electrophoretic pixel unit 120, only it requires for its power supply. 由此可知,可挠性显示面板100 可以利用第一显示区域112内的电泳^象素单元120来显示静态的画面,以达省电的功效。 It can be seen, the flexible display panel 100 may display a first area within the electrophoretic pixel cell 112 ^ 120 to display a static picture, to achieve power saving effect.

值得一提的是,在本发明的第二实施例中,电泳像素单元120中的电泳层也可以是胶嚢式电泳层224,如图2所示。 It is worth mentioning that, in the second embodiment of the present invention, the electrophoretic layer of the electrophoretic pixel cell 120 may be Nang gel electrophoretic layer 224, as shown in FIG.

请再次参阅图1A所示,配置于第二显示区域114内的各电湿润像素单元130包括第二反射层132、电湿润层134、第二像素电极136以及第二薄膜晶体管138。 Please refer again to Figure 1A, the pixels arranged in each electrowetting cell region 114 in the second display 130 includes a second reflective layer 132, an electrowetting layer 134, the second pixel electrode 136 and the second thin film transistor 138. 其中,电湿润层134配置于第二反射层132上方,并包括有微杯131、透光溶液133及染色溶液135。 Wherein the electrowetting layer 134 is disposed above the second reflective layer 132, and includes microcups 131, 133 and the staining solution was translucent 135. 透光溶液133与染色溶液135则是注于微杯131内。 Translucent dye solution 133 and the solution 135 is within the injection microcups 131. 换言之,微杯131是用以承载各电湿润像素单元130 中的透光溶液133与染色溶液135。 In other words, the micro-cup carrier 131 is used for the light-transmitting staining solution 133 and the solution 135 electrowetting each pixel unit 130. 其中,染色溶液135与透光溶液133互不相溶。 Wherein the light-transmitting staining solution 135 133 immiscible solution. 以本实施例来说,透光溶液133为水,染色溶液135则为黑色油墨。 In the present embodiment, the light transmittance of aqueous solution 133, 135 compared with the black ink staining solution. 而且,由于微杯131的底部表面具疏水性,因此在初始状态下,染色溶液135会位于透光溶液133下方,并覆盖住-微杯131的底部表面。 Further, since the bottom surface of the microcups 131 is hydrophobic, and therefore in the initial state, the dye solution 135 will be positioned below the translucent solution 133, and covers - a bottom surface 131 of the microcups.

第二像素电极136是配置于第二反射层132与电湿润层134之间,并与第二薄膜晶体管138电性连接。 The second pixel electrode 136 is disposed between the reflective layer 132 and the second electrowetting layer 134, and electrically connected to the second thin film transistor 138. 在本实施例中,第二反射层132例如是与第二薄膜晶体管138中的栅极或源极/漏极(未绘示)在同一制程中一并形成于可挠基板110上。 Embodiment, for example, the second reflective layer 132 and the second thin film transistor 138 the gate or source / drain (not shown) can be collectively formed on the flexible substrate 110 in the same process in the present embodiment.

承上述,由于透光溶液133具有导电性或极性,因此在透过第二薄膜晶体管138施加电压于第二像素电极136上,而在透光溶液133与第二像素电极136间生成电场时,透光溶液133与染色溶液135之间的表面张力会产生变化,使得染色溶液135被透光溶液133挤压而缩小变形,并暴露出微杯131底部的部分表面,如图1B所示。 Bearing the above, since the solution 133 having light-transmitting conductive or polar, and therefore the applied voltage passes through the second thin film transistor 138 on the second pixel electrode 136, and in the solution of the light-transmitting pixel electrode 133 and the second electric field is generated 136 , the surface tension between the solution 133 and the light-transmissive dye solution will produce changes 135, 133 so that the dye solution 135 is pressed narrow translucent solution deformed and exposes a portion of the bottom surface 131 of the microcups, shown in Figure 1B. 此时,电湿润像素单元130即可通过第二反射层132反射外部所入射的环境光,以显示出亮态画面。 In this case, the pixel unit 130 can electrowetting by reflecting external incident on the second reflective layer 132 of ambient light, bright state to show the picture. 反之则如图1A所示,在未施加电压于第二像素电极136时,染色溶液135是覆盖住微杯131的底部表面,此时外部所入射的环境光将会被染色溶液所吸收,因而显示出暗态画面。 Otherwise 1A, when no voltage is applied to the second pixel electrode 136, 135 is a stain solution covers the bottom surface of the microcups stay 131, in which case the external incident ambient light will be absorbed by the dye solution, thus the screen shows the dark state.

由于透光溶液133与染色溶液135之间的表面张力可随着透光溶液133 与第二像素电极136之间的电场大小迅速地产生变化,因此可挠性显示面板100可通过第二显示区域114内的这些电湿润像素单元130来显示画面更新速度快的动态画面。 Since the surface tension between the solution 133 and the light-transmissive dye solution 135 may vary with an electric field generated between the size of the second transmissive pixel electrode 133 and the solution 136 quickly, and therefore the flexible display panel 100 may display a second region these electrowetting pixel unit 114 of the display 130 a screen update speed fast moving picture.

特别的是,第二薄膜晶体管138是与电泳像素单元120的第一薄膜晶体管128以同一制程制作而成,且这些第一薄膜晶体管128及第二薄膜晶体管138可以是主动式薄膜晶体管,也可以是被动式薄膜晶体管。 In particular, the second thin film transistor 138 to 128 is the same process as the first thin film transistor made of electrophoretic pixel unit 120, and the first thin film transistor 128 and a second thin film transistor 138 may be a thin film transistor active may be It is a passive thin film transistor. 另外, 第二像素电极136则是与电泳像素单元120的第一像素电极126以同一制程制作,后文将再进一步说明之。 Further, the second pixel electrode 136 is the first unit of the electrophoretic pixel 120 to the pixel electrode 126 in the same production process, are then further illustration later.

请继续参照图1A及图1B,透光保护层140是配置于电泳像素单元120 与电湿润像素单元130上,驱动电路150则是配置于可挠基板110的非显示区域116内,并电性连接至各电泳像素单元120与电湿润像素单元130, 用以控制这些电泳像素单元120与电湿润像素单元130的显示状态。 Still referring to FIGS. 1A and 1B, a transparent protection layer 140 is disposed on the electrophoretic pixel unit 120 and the pixel unit 130 electrically wetting, the driving circuit 150 is disposed on flexible substrate 110 of the non-display region 116 and electrically connected to each electrophoretic pixel unit 120 and the pixel unit 130 electrically wetting, to control the electrophoretic pixel unit 120 and the display state of the pixel unit 130 electrically wetting. 另外, 可挠性显示面板100亦包括边缘胶体170,配置于非显示区域116与第一显示区域112或第二显示区域114的交界处,用以将电泳层124及电湿润层134密封于可挠基板110与透光保护层140之间。 Further, the flexible display panel 100 also includes an edge colloidal 170 disposed in the non-display area 116 and display area 112 at the junction of the first or second display area 114 for the electrophoretic layer 124 and an electrowetting layer 134 may be sealed to the 140 between the flexible substrate 110 and the transparent protective layer.

此外,本实施例的可挠性显示面板100还于透光保护层140与电泳像素单元120及电湿润l象素单元130之间配置彩色滤光片(color filter)160,以将第一反射层122与第二反射层132所反射出的光线转换为色光,进而使可挠性显示面板100能够显示全色域的彩色画面。 Further, the flexible display panel 100 of the present embodiment is also in the transparent protection layer 120 and the electrophoretic pixel unit electrically disposed between the pixel unit wetting l 130 140 a color filter (color filter) 160, to a first reflector layer 122 and the light 132 reflected off the reflective layer is converted into the second color light, thereby enabling flexible display panel 100 can display color images of the color gamut.

值得一提的是,除了配置彩色滤光片160的方式之外,也可以直接利用具有颜色的电泳层124来令可挠性显示面板100能够显示全色域的彩色画面。 It is worth mentioning that, in addition to the arrangement of the color filter 160 may be directly electrophoretic layer 124 having a color to make the flexible display panel 100 can display color images of the color gamut. 举例来说,各电泳像素单元120中的电泳层124可以仅具有白色带电粒子129w或黑色带电粒子129b,再搭配介电溶液127的颜色,即使可挠性显示面板100达到显示全色域画面的功效。 For example, the electrophoretic layer 120 of each electrophoretic pixel unit 124 may have only black or white charged particles 129w charged particles 129b, the color of the solution then with the dielectric 127, even if the flexible display panel 100 reaches the full gamut of the display screen effect. 熟习此项技艺者应该了解其技术细节,此处不再赘述。 Those skilled in the art should understand the technical details, not repeat them here. 图3为本发明的第三实施例中可挠性显示面板的剖面示意图。 Figure 3 is a third embodiment of the invention the flexible display panel is a schematic cross-sectional view. 请参照图3,本实施例的可挠性显示面板200与第一实施例的可挠性显示面板100 的相异处在于本实施例的电泳层124中的带电粒子129为彩色的带电粒子, 因此当带电粒子129因应电泳像素单元120中的电场而往介电溶液127的表面移动时,电泳像素单元120所显示出的颜色即为这些带电粒子129的颜色。 Referring to FIG. 3, the present embodiment wherein the flexible display panel 200 and the flexible display panel different from the first embodiment 100 of the present embodiment, the electrophoretic layer 124 of colored charged particles 129 charged particles, Thus, when a charged particle by an electric field 129 in the electrophoretic pixel unit 120 to be moved toward the surface 127 of the dielectric solution, electrophoretic pixel unit 120 shows the color that is the color of the charged particles 129. 以本实施例来说,这些电泳像素单元120中可以分别具有红色、绿色或蓝色的带电粒子129,以便于依据此三原色的组合显示出全色域的画面。 In the present embodiment, these electrophoretic pixel unit 120 may have red, green or blue charged particles 129, so as to display the screen in color gamut according to this combination of three primary colors. 另外,介电溶液127则为深色溶液,如黑色溶液。 Further, the dielectric solution was dark solution 127, such as a black solution. 而且,在本实施例的电湿润层134中,染色溶液135则可以是红色、 绿色或蓝色墨水,且其例如是以喷墨印刷(inkjetprinting)的方式填入至微杯131内。 Further, in the electro-wetting layer 134 of this embodiment, the staining solution 135 may be red, green or blue ink, ink jet printing and which is for example (inkjetprinting) is filled into the microcups embodiment 131. 如此一来,在第二像素电极136上未施加有电压的电湿润像素单元130中,即可通过染色溶液135将第二反射层132所反射的光线转换为色光。 Thus, the second pixel electrode 136 is not applied electrical voltage wetting pixel unit 130, a solution 135 to staining by converting the reflected light 132 as the second color light reflective layer. 由上述可知,由于可挠性显示面板200是直接以彩色的电泳层124及电湿润层134分别作为电泳像素单元120及电湿润像素单元130的显示介质,因此无须再于透光保护层140上配置彩色滤光片,即可使可挠性显示面板200具有显示彩色画面的功能。 From the foregoing, since the flexible display panel 200 is directly colored electrophoretic layer 124 and an electrowetting layer 134, respectively, as a pixel unit 120 and the electrophoretic display medium electrowetting pixel unit 130, and therefore no longer in the transparent protection layer 140 By placing the color filter, you can make the flexible display panel 200 having a color display screen. 为使熟习此技艺者进一步了解本发明的可挠性显示面板的制程,下文将举实施例说明之。 For those skilled in

电泳层124的详细制程为此技术领域的相关人员所熟知,此处不再赘述。 Detailed process electrophoretic layer 124 are well known in the art for this purpose the relevant art, it is not repeated here. 电湿润层134的制程则是先形成多个^:杯131,其中各^f敖杯131均位于其所对应的第二像素电极136的上方。 The electrowetting layer 134 is a process to form a plurality of ^: 131 cups, wherein each cup-AO 131 F ^ are positioned above its corresponding pixel electrode 136 of a second. 接着,在各微杯131内填入透光溶液133与染色溶液135。 Next, a solution 133 is filled with translucent dye solution 135 in cups 131 each micro. 在本实施例中,透光溶液133例如是水,染色溶液135则例如是油墨,且其可以通过喷墨印刷的方式填入各^i:杯131中,而染色溶液135的颜色则可以是黑色或彩色(如红色、绿色或蓝色)。 In the present embodiment, the transparent aqueous solution, for example, 133, 135 staining solution for example an ink, and each of which can be filled by inkjet printing ^ i by: the cup 131, and 135 is color staining solution may be black or color (such as red, green or blue). 请参照图4D,在上述所形成的电泳像素单元120及电湿润像素单元130 上形成透光保护层140,并且在可挠基板110的非显示区域116内形成驱动电路150,之后再将玻璃基材101与可挠基板IIO分离,即大致完成可挠性显示基板100的制程。 Referring to Figure 4D, the transparent protection layer 140 is formed on the electrophoretic pixel unit 120 is formed above the pixel unit 130 and the electro-wetting, and in a non-flexible substrate 110 may be a display driver circuit 150 is formed within region 116, then

also a glass substrate 101, and the flexible substrate so as to separate IIO. 值得一提的是,为将电泳层124与电湿润层134密封于可挠基板110 与透光保护层140之间, 一般尚会在形成透光保护层140之后,在可挠基板IIO的非显示区域116与第一显示区域112及第二显示区域114的交界处形成边缘胶体170。 It is worth mentioning, between 140 to 124 and the electrophoretic layer electrowetting layer 134 is sealed to the flexible substrate 110 and the transparent protective layer will typically still after forming the transparent protection layer 140, the non-flexible substrate of IIO display region 116 at the junction of the first display region 112 and the second display area 114 is formed colloidal edge 170. 此外,若于图4C中所形成的电泳层124的带电粒子129为黑色或白色, 且电湿润层134中的染色溶液135为黑色溶液,则可以在形成透光保护层140之前,先于电泳层124与电湿润层134上形成如图1所示的彩色滤光片160,以使所制成的可挠性显示面板能够显示全色域的彩色画面。 Further, if the electrophoretic layer formed in FIG.
