However, it is apparent to those skilled in the art that the concept of the present invention is not limited to a backlight display device, and can be applied to a front emission display device as described later.

4 is a plan view schematically showing a pixel circuit according to an embodiment of the present invention. 4, only one pixel circuit driven by the scanning line S1, the data line D1, and the power supply line 50 is shown for convenience of explanation.

4, the pixel circuit according to an embodiment of the present invention includes an organic EL element 40 for expressing an image corresponding to an amount of current to be applied, And a driving circuit (80).

The organic EL element 40 includes an organic light emitting layer, a pixel electrode layer 42 for forming an anode (ITO), and a pixel electrode layer (not shown) for forming a cathode.

The driving circuit 80 can be formed using a driving circuit of a voltage or current writing type. When a selection signal is applied from a scanning line, a current flowing in the organic EL element 40 is controlled in accordance with an image signal applied to the data line So that a desired image is displayed.

The pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 is formed so as to overlap with the power supply line 50 of the driving circuit 80 according to an embodiment of the present invention. In this case, since a constant power supply voltage is applied to the power supply line 50, variations in small data applied to the pixel electrode layer 42 do not substantially affect the power supply line 50. [

Therefore, when the pixel electrode layer 42 is formed to overlap with the power supply line 50, the organic light emitting layer 41 can be formed to be wider, and the aperture ratio of the organic EL display device can be improved.

Specifically, the gate electrode of the switching transistor 10 is formed by an electrode layer substantially the same as the scanning line S1, and the source region of the switching transistor 10 is electrically connected to the data line D1 by a contact hole . The drain region of the switching transistor 10 is elongated toward the driving transistor 20 and is electrically connected to the gate electrode of the driving transistor 20 by a contact hole.

The drain region of the driving transistor 20 is electrically connected to the power supply line 50 through a contact hole and the source region is electrically connected to the pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 by a contact hole.

At this time, an insulating layer is formed between the pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 and the power supply line 50 so that a part of the pixel electrode layer 42 overlaps the power supply line 50 with the insulating layer therebetween .

The capacitor 30 is formed by the power supply line 50 and the gate electrode of the driving transistor 20.

Thus, when the switching transistor 10 is turned on by the selection signal, the data voltage is transferred to the gate of the driving transistor 20, and a predetermined current is applied to the pixel electrode layer 42. The holes injected from the pixel electrode layer 42 are transferred to the light emitting layer via the major transport layer of the organic light emitting layer 41 and electrons are injected from the cathode electrode layer (not shown) via the electron transport layer of the organic light emitting layer 41 do. Electrons and holes recombine in the light emitting layer to generate excitons. As the excitons change from the excited state to the ground state, the fluorescent molecules of the light emitting layer emit light. At this time, the emitted light is emitted through the transparent pixel electrode layer 42, the insulating layer, and the substrate, thereby forming an image.

A gate electrode 16 made of aluminum (Al), chromium (Cr) or the like is formed in the lateral direction so as to cross the silicon layer 12 on the insulating film 15.

At this time, in the silicon layer 12, the portion located under the gate electrode 16 is not doped, and both portions of the silicon layer 12 are doped with an n-type impurity. And a drain region 14, and a non-doped region forms a channel region.

A source electrode 18 is formed on the source region 13 and is electrically connected to the data line D1 through the source electrode 18. [ A drain electrode 19 is formed on the drain region 14 and a drain electrode 19 is connected to the gate electrode of the second transistor 20.

The power supply line 50 is formed on the insulating film 15 and buried by the first insulating layer 17. The pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 is formed on the first insulating layer 17 between the transistor 10 and the power supply line 50. [ The pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 extends to a portion over the power supply line 50 and a second insulating layer 23 having an opening formed on the pixel electrode layer 42 is formed. At this time, the second insulating layer 23 is formed so as to cover at least a part of the edge of the pixel electrode layer 42.

When the organic light emitting display device according to an embodiment of the present invention is a backside light emitting display device, the opening of the second insulating layer 23 is formed at a portion where the pixel electrode layer 42 does not overlap the power supply line 50 And the organic light emitting layer 41 is formed in the opening of the second insulating layer 23. On the organic light emitting layer 41, a metal layer 21 for forming a cathode electrode is formed.

7 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line A-A 'in the case where the organic light emitting layer 42 is formed to be as wide as possible.

As shown in FIG. 7, the organic light emitting layer 41 can be formed so as to be maximally close to the power supply line 50 within a range that does not warp.

The distance between the step of the first insulating layer 17 and the power supply line 50 is b and the distance between the step of the pixel electrode layer 42 and the step of the first insulating layer 17 is a , The opening portion of the second insulating layer 23 is formed away from the power supply line 50 by a sum of at least a and b, and the aperture ratio of the organic EL display device is maximized.

As described above, by overlapping the pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 with the power supply line 50 and the insulating layer 17 interposed therebetween, the organic light emitting layer 41 can be formed to be wider, .

8 illustrates a case where a pixel circuit according to an embodiment of the present invention is applied to a front emission display device.

As shown in FIG. 8, when the concept of the present invention is applied to the front emission display device, the planarization layer 22 is formed on the first insulation layer 17, .

The planarizing film 22 may be formed of an organic film. The electrode layer 42 is formed of a metal layer capable of reflecting light, and the electrode layer 21 is formed of a transparent electrode layer. According to an embodiment of the present invention, the electrode layer 42 is formed to overlap with the power supply line 50 and the first insulating layer 17 therebetween.

The pixel circuit according to another embodiment of the present invention is also characterized in that the pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 overlaps not only the power supply line 50 but also the scanning line S2, Which is different from the pixel circuit shown in FIG.

Specifically, since the positive voltage signal is applied to the scanning line during the selection time of the pixel circuit, a small voltage fluctuation by the pixel electrode layer 42 does not substantially affect the selection signal applied to the scanning line.

By overlapping the pixel electrode layer 42 of the organic EL element 40 with the signal line to which the constant voltage is applied, the light emitting region of the pixel circuit can be maximized and the aperture ratio of the organic electroluminescent display device can be increased.

In the pixel circuit according to another embodiment of the present invention, a second insulating layer having an opening is formed on the pixel electrode layer 42, and an organic light emitting layer 41 is formed on the opening. The openings of the second insulating layer are formed so as to be horizontally spaced at least by the sum of the distance between the stepped portion of the first insulating layer and the power supply line and the stepped portion of the pixel electrode layer 42 and the stepped portion of the first insulating layer .

In FIG. 9, the pixel electrode layer 42 is illustrated as overlapping the scanning line S2 of the next row, but it goes without saying that it may be overlapped with the current scanning line S1 in some embodiments. In addition, the pixel electrode layer 42 may be superposed only on the scanning line S2 without overlapping with the power supply line 50. [

In the foregoing, embodiments in which the concept of the present invention is optimally applied have been described. It will be apparent to those skilled in the art, however, that the concept of the present invention is not limited to the above embodiments, and that various modifications may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.

Specifically, in the above description, the drive circuit includes a voltage-write-type circuit including only a driving transistor and a switching transistor, but the concept of the present invention is not limited to a specific pixel circuit, Alternatively, a drive circuit can be formed by a current write method.

In this case, the pixel electrode layer of the organic EL element may be a gate electrode or a source / drain electrode. In this case, the power source line may be a gate electrode or a source / drain electrode of the transistor. And an insulating layer.

Further, in the above description, the case where the driving transistor and the switching transistor are implemented by a transistor having an N-type channel has been described. However, the driving transistor and the switching transistor may include a first electrode, a second electrode, And all elements capable of controlling a current flowing from the second electrode to the third electrode according to a voltage applied to the electrode and the second electrode.

According to the present invention, by overlapping an electrode layer of an organic EL element with a signal line to which a constant voltage such as a scan line is applied, an organic light emitting layer can be formed in a wide area, and the aperture ratio of the organic EL display device can be improved.
