Description

Shift register

The invention relates to a shift register, in particular to a shift register applied to a light-sensing touch panel.

At present, the design trend of the display panel is to integrate the shift register in the gate driving circuit on the display panel to replace the external driving chip, thereby reducing the manufacturing process, increasing the integration of the display panel, and reducing the manufacturing cost.

Since each stage of the shift register circuit in the general shift register only outputs one gate signal to drive the pixel array of the general display panel. However, if the light-sensing touch panel formed after the light-sensing touch function is added to the display panel, in addition to receiving the gate signal from the shift temporary storage circuit, another signal different from the gate signal needs to be received. Normal operation, in other words, receiving two output signals from two different pulse widths of the shift register circuit. If the external driving chip provides another signal to the light sensing touch panel, the advantages of the integrated shift register on the display panel cannot be extended to the light sensing touch panel.

Therefore, the prior art also develops a shift register that can provide two output signals of different pulse widths. This type of shift register includes at least a driving circuit and a pull-down circuit and a driving circuit to According to the driving signal, two dual output signals of different pulse widths, namely gate signal and sensing signal, are provided. However, since only a single high frequency clock signal is received in the driving circuit and no other high frequency clock signals are received, the sensing signal will be in a floating state. If the sensing signal in the floating state is offset from the process, there will be a serious leakage phenomenon, and here in the floating state The sensing signal is also susceptible to interference from other signals.

The driving unit is configured to provide an Nth primary gate signal and an Nth secondary gate signal according to the Nth driving signal and the plurality of high frequency clock signals. The driving unit includes a first transistor, a second transistor, and a plurality of switching units. The first transistor has a control end for receiving the Nth stage driving signal, a first end for receiving the first high frequency clock signal, and a second end for providing the Nth stage main gate signal. The second transistor has a control end electrically connected to the control end of the first transistor, a first end, and a second end for providing an Nth-order secondary gate signal. The plurality of switching units have a first end receiving the corresponding k high frequency clock signals and a second end electrically connected to the first end of the second transistor. The first pull-down unit is electrically connected to the driving unit for pulling down the Nth driving signal, the Nth main gate signal and the Nth secondary gate signal. The main pull-down unit is electrically connected to the control end of the first transistor in the driving unit and the second end of the second transistor for pulling down the potential of the control end of the first transistor according to the N+k-level main gate signal and The potential of the second end of the second transistor. The pulse widths of the Nth primary gate signal and the Nth secondary gate signal are different.

The shift register in the integrated gate driving circuit of the present invention is on the light sensing touch panel, and the Nth stage shift register circuit can generate two different pulse width output signals for providing the light sensing touch. The signal required by the panel does not require an external driver chip, thereby reducing the manufacturing process of the light-sensitive touch panel and improving the integration degree, and also integrating the shift register in the gate driving circuit into the light-sensing touch panel.

FIG. 3 is a schematic diagram of signal waveforms during operation of the Nth stage shift register circuit 200 of FIG. 2, wherein the horizontal axis t is a time axis. In Fig. 3, the signals from top to bottom are the first high frequency clock signal HC1, the second high frequency clock signal HC2, the N-1th main gate signal G(n-1), the Nth The primary gate signal G(n), the Nth drive signal Q(n), the Nth secondary gate signal S(n), and the N+2 primary gate signal G(n+2). The N-1 stage main gate signal G(n-1) is electrically connected to the Nth stage shift register circuit 200 through the pull-up unit T6 N-1 of the N-1th stage shift register circuit, The Nth stage driving signal Q(n) of the Nth stage shift register circuit 200 is provided. The frequencies of the first high frequency clock signal HC1 and the second high frequency clock signal HC2 are higher than the first low frequency clock signal LC1 and the second low frequency clock signal LC2. The first high frequency clock signal HC1 and the second high frequency clock signal HC2 are clock signals that can be sequentially applied to the same stage shift register circuit and one of the high frequency clock signals is higher in phase than the previous one. The frequency clock signal is late. For example, the Nth stage shift register circuit 200 can be electrically connected to the second transistor T2 as in the third transistor T3 and the fourth transistor T4, and sequentially after the fourth transistor T4. The other transistors are connected to receive the first high frequency clock signal HC1, the second high frequency clock signal HC2, the third high frequency clock signal HC3 and the fourth high frequency clock signal HC4, and so on.

As shown in Fig. 3, during the t1 period, the N-1th main gate signal G(n-1) is switched from a low potential to a high potential, since the N-1th main gate signal G(n-1) can be The pull-up unit T6 N-1 through the N-1th stage shift register circuit is electrically connected to the control terminal of the first transistor T1 of the Nth stage shift register circuit 200, so the capacitor 216 is charged to make the Nth The stage driving signal Q(n) rises to the first high potential VH1, and turns on the first transistor T1, the second transistor T2 and the fifth transistor T5, and turns on the twentieth transistor T20, the twenty-second The transistor T22, the thirteenth transistor T13, and the fifteenth transistor T15 further pull down the first pull-down control signal K(n) and the second pull-down control signal P(n) to the second low voltage VSS_G to cut off Sixteenth transistor T16, seventeenth transistor T17, eighteenth transistor T18, ninth transistor T9, tenth transistor T10 and eleventh transistor T11.

Then, in the period t2, the N-1th main gate signal G(n-1) is switched from a high potential to a low potential, so that the sixth transistor T6 of the pull-up unit of the N-1th stage shift register circuit can be made. N-1 is turned off, so the low potential of the N-1th main gate signal G(n-1) cannot be changed via the sixth transistor T6 N-1 of the pull-up unit of the N-1th stage shift register circuit. The Nth stage drive signal Q(n). At this time, the first high frequency clock signal HC1 is switched from a low potential to a high potential, and the coupling of the capacitor 216 pulls the Nth stage driving signal Q(n) from the first high potential VH1 to the second high potential VH2, which will have The high-frequency first high-frequency clock signal HC1 outputs an N-th stage main gate signal G(n), and outputs a first high-frequency clock signal HC1 having a high potential to the second end of the fifth transistor T5. The third transistor T3 and the sixth transistor T6 are turned on. The Nth main gate signal G(n) can output the N+1th driving signal Q(n+1) to the N+1th shift temporary storage circuit through the sixth transistor T6. The first high frequency clock signal HC1 having a high potential outputs a Nth-order secondary gate signal S(n) having a third high potential VH3 through the third transistor T3 and the second transistor T2.

During the t3 period, the first high frequency clock signal HC1 is switched from a high potential to a low potential, and the coupling of the capacitor 216 causes the Nth stage driving signal Q(n) to be pulled down again from the second high potential VH2 to the first high potential VH1. The Nth main gate signal G(n) and the second end of the fifth transistor T5 are lowered to a low potential to turn off the third transistor T3. The third transistor T3 after the cutoff isolates the low-frequency first high-frequency signal HC1, but at this time, the second high-frequency signal HC2 is switched from a low potential to a high potential, and is output through the fourth transistor T4 and the second transistor T2. The Nth secondary gate signal S(n) having the fourth high potential VH4, so the Nth secondary gate signal S(n) is in a charged state. In this way, the Nth secondary gate signal S(n) does not fall to a low potential with the change of the first high frequency clock signal HC1 during the t3 period, and can be maintained at the fourth high potential VH4, and the fourth high potential VH4 can be Higher than the third high potential VH3.

Until the time period t4, the N+2 main gate signal G(n+2) is switched from the low potential to the high potential, and the seventh transistor T7 and the eighth transistor T8 are turned on, and the Nth stage driving signal Q(n) is pulled down. And the Nth secondary gate signal S(n). The first high frequency clock signal HC1 and the second high frequency clock signal HC2 are high frequency clock signals having the same pulse width and can be sequentially applied to the Nth stage shift register circuit 200. Therefore, in this embodiment, the time when the Nth secondary gate signal S(n) is maintained at a high potential is higher than the temperature at which the Nth primary gate signal G(n) is maintained at a high potential. Time, but the invention is not limited thereto, and any output signal that can output two or more different pulse widths is within the scope of the invention.

In the above embodiment, the time when the Nth-level secondary gate signal S(n) is maintained at the high potential is longer than the time when the N-th stage main gate signal G(n) is maintained at the high potential. So integrated in light The driving unit 202 of the Nth stage shift register circuit 200 of the inductive touch panel can output two output signals with different pulse widths, that is, the Nth level gate signal S(n) and the Nth stage with different pulse widths. The main gate signal G(n) is used to provide a light-sensitive touch panel.
