FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of a display device according to an embodiment of the invention. 2 is a schematic diagram showing the internal circuit block of the display driver of the embodiment of FIG. 1. Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 , the display device 100 of the embodiment includes a display driver 110 and a display panel 120 . The display driver 110 is coupled to the display panel 120. The display driver 110 is configured to receive a display material S1, and output a driving signal S2 or S3 to the display panel 120 after performing data processing on the display material S1 to utilize a sub-pixel imaging method. The display panel 120 is configured to display an image frame in a first display mode or a second display mode. In this embodiment, the second display mode is, for example, a low-power mode in an energy-saving power-saving application. In contrast, the first display mode is, for example, a normal mode of the non-low power operation mode.

Specifically, in the embodiment, the display driver 110 includes a first display driving channel 112, a second display driving channel 114, and a selection unit 116. The selecting unit 116 is configured to select the first display driving channel 112 or the second display driving channel 114 according to a selection signal SEL to perform data processing on the display material S1. The first display driving channel 112 and the second display driving channel 114 respectively output driving signals S2 and S3 to cause the display driver 110 to drive the display panel 120 to display an image frame in the first display mode or the second display mode.

In the present embodiment, the selection signal SEL is, for example, selected to turn on the signal transmission path connected to the second display driving channel 114 when the display device 100 has a requirement to enter the low power operation mode, so that the display driver 110 utilizes the second display driving. Channel 114 drives display panel 120. In this embodiment, the display device 100 enters a low-power operation mode, including but not limited to, the display device 100 is in a standby state because it does not need to display a complete image frame for a long time, or the user needs according to actual operation requirements. The display device 100 is self-set to enter a low power mode of operation, or the power device for supplying the display device 100 may be used for power, or other conditions that may require entry into a low power mode of operation. In at least the above three cases, the display device 100 is likely to enter the low power operation mode, and the display driver 110 uses the second display drive channel 114 to drive the display panel 120.

In the embodiment, the first display driving channel 112 uses the sub-pixel imaging method to drive the display panel 120 to display an image frame in the first display mode. Specifically, the first display driving channel 112 of the embodiment includes a first voltage converter 210, an edge detection circuit 220, a pixel filtering circuit 230, and a second voltage conversion. 240. In the first display mode, the first voltage converter 210 performs a gamma-to-linear conversion on the non-linear gamma image signal of the display data S1 to convert the nonlinear gamma image signal into a linear signal. . Then, the boundary detection circuit 220 performs boundary detection on the image frame information included in the linear signal. Then, the pixel filter circuit 230 performs a filtering operation on the boundary information of the image frame to improve the quality of the image frame to be displayed. Then, the second voltage converter 240 performs a linear-to-gamma conversion on the linear signal after the filtering operation to convert the linear signal into a nonlinear gamma voltage, thereby being in the first display mode. The drive signal S2 is output to drive the display panel 120.

Therefore, in the first display mode, the first display driving channel 112 drives the display panel 120, for example, using a plurality of preset gamma voltages. For example, in an embodiment, the first display driving channel 112 drives the plurality of sub-pixels on the display panel 120 by using gamma voltages V0, V255 and other preset gamma voltages in the first display mode, for example. Displays the corresponding grayscale value.

In the embodiment, the second display driving channel 114 drives the display panel 120 to display the image frame by using the sub-pixel imaging method in the second display mode. Specifically, the second display driving channel 114 of the embodiment includes a data processing unit 310. And a voltage output unit 320. The voltage output unit 320 is coupled to the data processing unit 310. In the second display mode, the voltage output unit 320 drives the display panel 120 with a plurality of gamma voltages. In this embodiment, the voltage value of at least one of the gamma voltages for driving the display panel 120 is determined according to the arrangement of the sub-pixels on the display panel 120. For example, in the present embodiment, the arrangement of sub-pixels can be evaluated, for example, by at least one proportional relationship related to the arrangement of sub-pixels. The proportional relationship is determined, for example, according to the arrangement of sub-pixels of different colors on different directions on the display panel 120. Therefore, in the present embodiment, the voltage value of at least one of the gamma voltages for driving the display panel 120 can be determined, for example, according to the proportional relationship.

For example, in an embodiment, the voltage output unit 320 drives the plurality of sub-pixels on the display panel 120 to display corresponding grayscale values, for example, by using the gamma voltages V0, V186, and V255 in the second display mode. In this example, the gamma voltage V186 is determined, for example, according to the arrangement of sub-pixels on the display panel 120, and the determined gamma voltage V186 is interposed between the gamma voltages V0 and V255. That is to say, the gamma voltage V186 is used as the intermediate voltage between the two, which is determined by the proportional relationship of the panel sub-pixels, and is used to provide the sub-pixel arrangement to complement the color on the edge. In another embodiment, the voltage output unit 320 drives the plurality of sub-pixels on the display panel 120 to display corresponding grayscale values, for example, by using the gamma voltages V0, V155, V212, and V255 in the second display mode. In this example, the gamma voltages V155 and V212 are determined, for example, according to the arrangement of sub-pixels on the display panel 120, and the determined gamma voltages V155 and V212 are interposed between the gamma voltages V0 and V255. In this embodiment, the phase Compared with the second display mode, in the first display mode, the gamma voltages V0, V255 and other preset gamma voltages for driving the display panel 120 are predetermined, and are not based on the display panel 120 and the sub-pictures. The proportional relationship related to the arrangement of the elements is adjusted. That is, the gamma voltages V0, V255 determine the minimum grayscale value and the maximum grayscale value of the display panel 120.

It should be noted that although the present embodiment is exemplified in that the display driver 110 includes two display driving channels, the present invention is not limited thereto. In an embodiment, the driving function of the second display driving channel 114 can also be implemented by integrating into any one of the first display driving channels 112. Alternatively, in an embodiment, the driving function of the second display driving channel 114 can also be implemented by adding a circuit block to the first display driving channel 112.

Several embodiments are set forth below to illustrate the manner in which the second display drive channel 114 determines the gamma voltage, although the invention is not limited to the various embodiments illustrated. Further combinations are also allowed between the embodiments.

FIG. 5 is a schematic diagram showing a sub-pixel repeating unit according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 1 to FIG. 5, in the embodiment, FIG. 3 is, for example, the display data S1 input to the display driver 110 in FIG. 1, which includes multi-pixel data P11 to P44 for writing respectively. The plurality of pixel units 422R, 422B are displayed on the display panel 420. In this embodiment, the pixel data P11 to P44 respectively include the first color sub-pixel data, the second color sub-pixel data, and the third color sub-pixel data. Further, in the present embodiment, although FIG. 3 is exemplified by only the 16-pixel data P11 to P44, the number thereof is not intended to limit the present invention. In the present embodiment, the display panel 420 includes a plurality of pixel units 422R, 422B, and each of the pixel units 422R, 422B includes two sub-pixels. The two sub-pixels are, for example, sub-pixels of two colors selected from the group consisting of a first color sub-pixel, a second color sub-pixel, and a third color sub-pixel. For example, in this embodiment, the first color sub-pixel, the second color sub-pixel, and the third color sub-pixel are, for example, a red sub-pixel, a green sub-pixel, and a blue sub-pixel, respectively. The invention is not limited. In an embodiment, the first color sub-pixel, the second color sub-pixel, and the third color sub-pixel may be a combination of white sub-pixels and other different color sub-pixels. In the present embodiment, the pixel unit 422R includes, for example, a red sub-pixel and a green sub-pixel, and the pixel unit 422B includes, for example, a blue sub-pixel and a green sub-pixel. Two pixel units 422R, 422B including different color sub-pixels are staggered in different directions of the display panel 420 to form a sub-pixel array. In this embodiment, the pixel units 422R, 422B respectively include two sub-pixels.

In the present embodiment, the display driver 110 writes, for example, the pixel data P11 into the pixel unit 422R, which also has a pixel width WP in the X direction and the Y direction. In the present embodiment, since the pixel unit 422R includes only the red sub-pixel and the green sub-pixel, the display driver 110 drives the display panel 420 to display the image frame by using the sub-pixel imaging method. In the sub-pixel imaging method, in order to display the pixel data P11 having red, blue, and green colors, the pixel unit 422R including only the red sub-pixel and the green sub-pixel will cooperate with at least the pixel unit adjacent thereto. 422B jointly displays the pixel data P11 to compensate for the blue sub-pictures that are missing by itself. Prime. Similarly, in the sub-pixel imaging method, in order to display the pixel data P12 having red, blue, and green colors, the pixel unit 422B including only the blue sub-pixel and the green sub-pixel is at least adjacent to the left and right sides thereof. The pixel unit 422R collectively displays the pixel data P12 to compensate for the red sub-pixels that are missing by itself. Such a method of displaying the same pixel data by using adjacent pixel units in cooperation may be referred to as a sub-pixel imaging method, but the present invention is not limited thereto. In other embodiments, there are other possibilities for the display driver 110 to use the sub-pixel imaging method to drive the display panel 420 to display an image frame.

Referring to FIG. 5, in the embodiment, a part of the sub-pixels of the display panel 420 are arranged in an array to form the sub-pixel repeating unit 430 of FIG. 5. The sub-pixel repetition unit 430 is repeatedly arranged to form a sub-pixel array of the display panel 420. In the present embodiment, the sub-pixel repetition unit 430 is, for example, a 4×4 pixel array formed by arranging a plurality of pixel units 422R and 422B. In the present embodiment, in addition to the gamma voltages V0, V255, the voltage output unit 320 drives the sub-pixels on the display panel 420, for example, by using a gamma voltage V186 in the second display mode. In the present embodiment, the gamma voltage V186 is determined, for example, according to at least one proportional relationship. This proportional relationship is based on the pixel elements 422R, 422B in the sub-pixel repetition unit 430, based on the pixel unit, a first quantity ratio (horizontal sub-pixel ratio) occupied in the X direction and in the Y direction. The second quantity ratio (the vertical sub-pixel ratio) of the possession is determined. For example, taking the red sub-pixel as an example, in the first column of the sub-pixel repetition unit 430, the pixel unit 422R occupies the same row in the X direction in terms of the number ratio. A quantity ratio is 1/2. In other words, based on the pixel unit, at the first Among the four pixel units 422R, 422B of the column, the pixel unit 422R having the red sub-pixels occupies two in number, and thus the first number ratio is 1/2. Each pixel column in the Y direction includes a pixel unit 422R, and therefore, the second number ratio of the pixel unit 422R in the Y direction is 1/1 in terms of the number ratio. That is to say, in the sub-pixel repetition unit 430, each column includes the pixel unit 422R having the red sub-pixel on the basis of the pixel unit, and thus the second number ratio is 1/1. Therefore, the proportional relationship determined according to the red sub-pixel is (1/2) / (1/1) = 1/2. Similarly, taking the blue sub-pixel as an example, in the sub-pixel repeating unit 430, the first number ratio of the pixel units 422B occupying the same column in the X direction is 1/2. Each pixel column in the Y direction includes a pixel unit 422B, and therefore, the second number ratio of the pixel unit 422B in the Y direction is 1/1. Therefore, the proportional relationship determined according to the blue sub-pixel is (1/2) / (1/1) = 1/2. Further, taking the green sub-pixel as an example, in the sub-pixel repeating unit 430, since the pixel units 422B and 422R all include the green sub-pixel, the pixel units 422B and 422R occupy the same column in the X direction. The first quantity ratio is 1/1, and the second quantity ratio occupied in the same line in the Y direction is 1/1. Therefore, the proportional relationship determined according to the green sub-pixel is (1/1)/(1/1)=1/1. In the present embodiment, the gamma voltage V186 is determined, for example, according to a proportional relationship of 1/2 with a preset gamma voltage curve, and is used to drive red and blue sub-pixels on the display panel 420.

After the voltage value of the gamma voltage V186 is determined according to the arrangement of the sub-pixels on the display panel 420, the voltage output unit 320 determines the boundary relationship between the target driving sub-pixel and the plurality of sub-pixels adjacent thereto. Whether to use the decision The gamma voltage V186 drives the target drive sub-pixel. For example, in the present embodiment, assuming that the target driver sub-pixel is the blue sub-pixel of the pixel unit 422B in FIG. 4, the data processing unit 310 drives the sub-pixel and the adjacent sub-pixel according to the write target. The most significant bit of the sub-pixel data of the pixel determines the boundary relationship between these sub-pixels. Taking the blue sub-pixel data of the pixel data P11, P12, and P13 as an example, the data processing unit 310 fetches the most significant bit of the blue sub-pixel data to determine the blue sub-pixel. The boundary relationship between. It is assumed that the sequence of the most significant bits of the blue sub-pixel data captured by the data processing unit 310 is sequentially 010. In this example, the voltage output unit 320 determines that the gamma voltage V186 is used to drive the pixel unit 422B. Blue sub-pixels. In addition, in this embodiment, it is assumed that the sequence of the most significant bit of the blue sub-pixel data captured by the data processing unit 310 is 011, 100 or 101, and the voltage output unit 320 also determines to use the gamma voltage V186. The blue sub-pixel of the pixel unit 422B is driven. In this embodiment, if the sequence of the most significant bit of the blue sub-pixel data is 000, 001, 110 or 111, the voltage output unit 320 drives the blue of the pixel unit 422B, for example, by the gamma voltage V0 or V255. The dice picture. Similarly, in the embodiment, if the target driver subpixel is the red subpixel of the pixel unit 422R, whether the voltage output unit 320 is driven by the gamma voltage V186 can also be determined by using the above determination method. Let me repeat. Further, in the present embodiment, the green sub-pixel is driven by, for example, a gamma voltage V0 or V255.

Therefore, in this embodiment, the voltage output unit 320 can have a built-in look-up table in which the correspondence between the sequence of the most significant bits and the gamma voltage is listed. The voltage output unit 320 can determine the boundary at which the boundary is based on the truth table. Which gamma voltage needs to be output to drive the sub-pixels.

FIG. 6 is a schematic diagram showing a sub-pixel combination for displaying white dots according to an embodiment of the invention. In the present embodiment, the display panel 420 displays a white dot by, for example, a sub-pixel combination including a red sub-pixel SP_R, a green sub-pixel SP_G, and a blue sub-pixel SP_B. In FIG. 6, the red sub-pixel SP_R is denoted as R186 indicating that the red sub-pixel SP_R is driven by the gamma voltage V186 and is displayed in red.

Referring to FIG. 7 to FIG. 9, the display panel 520 of this embodiment is similar to the display panel 420 of the embodiment of FIG. 4, but the main difference between the two is, for example, the arrangement of sub-pixels on the display panel 520, and the sub-pictures. The constituent elements of the repeating unit 530.

Specifically, in the present embodiment, the display panel 520 includes a plurality of pixel units 522R, 522G, and 522B, and each of the pixel units 522R, 522G, and 522B includes two sub-pixels.
