No limitation on scope.

Hereinafter, the present invention will be described in detail by explaining various embodiments of the present invention with drawings. However, the inventive concept may be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to the exemplary embodiments set forth herein. Moreover, the same reference numbers may be used in the drawings to indicate similar elements.

Specifically, the gate driver provided in the embodiment of the present invention may be applicable to any display device, for example, an active matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED) display device adopting a progressive scanning method, but the present invention does not use this. For restrictions. In a word, the present invention does not limit the specific implementation of the display device. Those with ordinary knowledge in the technical field should be able to design according to actual needs or applications.

In addition, according to the prior art, the gate driver can include multiple shift register circuits, and each shift register circuit must receive an enable signal, a start signal, and at least one clock signal, and generate At least one gate driving signal drives at least one column of pixels in the display device. Therefore, in the case where only three sets of shift register circuits are taken as an example, it is necessary to have at least seven input signal pins on the conventional gate driver. Three of them are used to individually receive an enable signal, the other three are used to individually receive a clock signal, and the last one is used to receive a common start signal.

However, compared with the prior art, the present invention is designed to hide or merge part of the control mechanism on some existing signals, so as to achieve the purpose of reducing the number of pins. Please refer to FIG. 1, which is a functional block diagram of a gate driver according to an embodiment of the present invention. The gate driver 10 includes a start signal generating circuit 101, a first shift register circuit 103, a second shift register circuit 105, and a third shift register circuit 107. The starting signal generating circuit 101 is configured to receive the first enabling signal emOE1, the second enabling signal emOE2, and the third enabling signal emOE3, and generate an initial signal i-STP.

In addition, the first to third shift register circuits 103, 105, and 107 are electrically coupled to the start signal generating circuit 101, respectively, and the first shift register circuit 103 receives the first enable signal emOE1 and The starting signal i-STP is used to generate at least one first gate driving signal GS1. The second shift register circuit 105 receives the second enable signal emOE2 and the start signal i-STP, and is used to generate at least a second gate drive signal GS2, and the third shift register circuit 107 receives The third enabling signal emOE3 and the start signal i-STP are used to generate at least one third gate driving signal GS3. It is worth noting that, for the convenience of the following description, the shift register circuit of this embodiment is also described by using only an example of three groups (ie, the first to third shift register circuits 103, 105). , 107), but it is not intended to limit the invention.

In other words, the gate driver 10 may further include a fourth shift register circuit to an N-th shift register circuit (that is, N is a positive integer greater than or equal to five), and it should be understood that The operation principles of the fourth to N-th shift register circuits are similar to the operation principles of the first to third shift register circuits 103, 105, and 107, so they will not be described in detail here. In addition, since the detailed contents of the shift register circuit are already known to those having ordinary knowledge in the technical field, only the detailed contents of the first shift register circuit 103 are illustrated in FIG. 1, and Details of the second and third shift register circuits 105 and 107 will not be repeated here. As shown in FIG. 1, the first shift register circuit 103 may include a shift register 1031 and a plurality of AND gates 1033.

Similarly, in order to facilitate the following description, the AND gate 1033 in FIG. 1 is also described by using only an example of four, but it is not intended to limit the present invention. According to the prior art, the waveform of the first clock signal (not shown) that should be received by the shift register 1031 and the waveform of the first enable signal emOE1 that the gate 1033 must receive are extremely different. Similarly, this embodiment will integrate the aforementioned first clock signal and the first enabling signal emOE1 into the same signal, and so on.

In this way, the number of input signal pins on the gate driver 10 can be omitted first while still meeting the operating requirements of the display device.

In addition, since the starting signals i-STP that the first to third shift register circuits 103, 105, 107 must receive in common can be generated by the starting signal generating circuit 101 in the gate driver 10, Therefore, the number of input signal pins on the gate driver 10 is omitted again. That is, compared with the conventional gate driver that requires seven input signal pins, the gate driver 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention only needs four input signal pins. However, in order to further explain the implementation details of the start signal generating circuit 101, the present invention further provides an implementation of the start signal generating circuit 101. Please refer to FIG. 2 together. FIG. 2 is a circuit diagram of a start signal generating circuit in the gate driver of FIG. 1. Among them, some components in FIG. 2 that are the same as those in FIG. 1 are marked with the same drawing numbers, and therefore no further details are given here.

In this embodiment, the starting signal generating circuit 101 may include a plurality of logic gates and a plurality of D-type flip-flops, such as the first to fourth logic gates 2011 to 2014, and the first to fourth D-type flip-flops. Inverter 2021 ~ 2024. The first logic gate 2011 has two input terminals and one output terminal. One input terminal receives the first enabling signal emOE1, and the other input terminal receives the second enabling signal emOE2. The second logic gate 2012 also has two input terminals and one output terminal, but one input terminal receives the second enabling signal emOE2, and the other input terminal receives the third enabling signal emOE3. The third logic gate 2013 also has two input terminals and one output terminal, but one input terminal receives the third enabling signal emOE3, and the other input terminal receives the first enabling signal emOE1.

Then, the data input terminal (D) of the first D-type flip-flop 2021 is electrically coupled to the output terminal of the first logic gate 2011, and the clock input terminal of the first D-type flip-flop 2021 receives a third signal. Can signal emOE3. Similarly, the data input terminal of the second D-type flip-flop 2022 is electrically coupled to the output terminal of the second logic gate 2012, and the clock input terminal of the second D-type flip-flop 2022 receives the first enable signal. emOE1. The data input terminal of the third D-type flip-flop 2023 is electrically coupled to the output terminal of the third logic gate 2013, and the clock input terminal of the third D-type flip-flop 2023 receives the second enabling signal emOE2.

In addition, the fourth logic gate 2014 has three input terminals and one output terminal, and the three input terminals are electrically coupled to the positive-phase output terminals (Q) of the first to third D-type flip-flops 2021 to 2023, respectively. The data input terminal of the fourth D-type flip-flop 2024 is electrically coupled to the output terminal of the fourth logic gate 2014, and the clock input terminal of the fourth D-type flip-flop 2024 receives the third enabling signal emOE3, The positive signal i-STP is output at the non-inverting output end of the fourth D-type flip-flop 2024.

In this embodiment, the first logic gate 2011, the second logic gate 2012, and the third logic gate 2013 may all be OR gates, and the fourth logic gate 2014 may be, for example, an OR gate. And the first D-type flip-flop 2021, the second D-type flip-flop 2022, and the third D-type flip-flop 2023 can all be, for example, positive-triggered D-type flip-flops, and the fourth D-type flip-flop 2024 can trigger a D-type flip-flop for a negative edge, as shown in FIG. 2, but the present invention is not limited thereto. In addition, since the operation principle of OR gate, reverse OR gate, positive edge triggering D-type flip-flop and negative edge triggering D-type flip-flop are already known to those with ordinary knowledge in the technical field, the above-mentioned first Details of the fourth to fourth logic gates 2011 to 2014 and the first to fourth D-type flip-flops 2021 to 2024 will not be repeated here.

However, according to the teachings of the above, those having ordinary knowledge in the technical field should understand that the present invention can be implemented by using a plurality of logic circuit elements (that is, the first to fourth logic gates 2011 to 2014 and the first to fourth logic gates The fourth D-type flip-flops 2021 to 2024) perform arithmetic processing on the first to third enable signals emOE1 to emOE3 to obtain the first to third shift register circuits 103 to 107 that must be received in common. Start signal i-STP. In addition, since the initial signal i-STP is generally generated only before the display device displays a screen, the present invention can also additionally design a set of waveforms of the first to third enabling signals emOE1 to emOE3 for use. To generate the initial signal i-STP. In other words, during the period when the display device normally displays one frame, the original waveforms of the first to third enabling signals emOE1 to emOE3 will not be used to generate the initial signal i-STP.

Please refer to FIG. 3A and FIG. 3B together. FIG. 3A is a timing diagram of the first to third enabling signals in the gate driver of FIG. 1 during the first period. The first period may be, for example, any period before the display device displays a screen. As shown in FIG. 3A, during the first period, the rising edge and falling edge of the first enabling signal emOE1 are earlier than the rising edge and falling edge of the second enabling signal emOE2, and the rising edge of the second enabling signal emOE2 And the falling edge is earlier than the rising edge and falling edge of the third enabling signal emOE3. Therefore, before the display device displays a screen, the starting signal generating circuit 101 in FIG. 2 also generates a high-level starting signal i-STP according to the above waveform.

Similarly, FIG. 3B is a timing diagram of the first to third enabling signals in the gate driver of FIG. 1 during the second period. The second period may be, for example, any period when the display device normally displays a screen. As shown in FIG. 3B, during the second period, the rising edge of the third enabling signal emOE3 is earlier than the rising edge of the second enabling signal emOE2, and the rising edge of the second enabling signal emOE2 is earlier than the first enabling signal. The rising edge of the energy signal emOE1, the falling edge of the second enabling signal emOE2 is also earlier than the falling edge of the first enabling signal emOE1, and the falling edge of the first enabling signal emOE1 is earlier than the falling edge of the third enabling signal emOE3. edge. Therefore, during the period when the display device normally displays a frame, the starting signal generating circuit 101 in FIG. 2 will not generate the starting signal i-STP according to the above waveform.

It should be noted that the waveforms of the first to third enabling signals emOE1 to emOE3 used in FIG. 3A and FIG. 3B are merely examples, which are not intended to limit the present invention. In other words, those with ordinary knowledge in the technical field should be able to design different timing waveforms according to actual needs or applications. Next, in order to further explain the application of reducing the input signal pins on the gate driver, the present invention further provides an embodiment of the display device. Please refer to FIG. 4, which is a functional block diagram of a display device according to an embodiment of the present invention.

The timing controller 40 is configured to generate a first enabling signal emOE1, a second enabling signal emOE2, and a third enabling signal emOE3. The start signal generating circuit 101 is electrically coupled to the timing controller 40, and the start signal generating circuit 101 is configured to receive the first enabling signal emOE1, the second enabling signal emOE2, and the third enabling signal emOE3, and generate Start signal i-STP.

The gate driver 42 is electrically coupled to the timing controller 40 and the start signal generating circuit 101, and the gate driver 42 receives the first enabling signal emOE1, the second enabling signal emOE2, the third enabling signal emOE3, and the The starting signal i-STP, and output multiple gate driving signals according to the first enabling signal emOE1, the second enabling signal emOE2, the third enabling signal emOE3, and the starting signal i-STP, as shown in FIG. 4 The pole driving signals G 1 to G M (that is, M is a positive integer greater than 1). Further, the data driver 44 for outputting a plurality of display data, the display data S shown in FIG. 4 1 ~ S P (i.e., P is a positive integer greater than 1). Each pixel unit 46 is electrically coupled to the gate driver 42 and the data driver 44, and each pixel unit 46 is configured to receive a gate driving signal G i (that is, i is 1 to M) positive integer) to decide whether to receive display data S 1 ~ S P.

However, as described in the foregoing, this embodiment is to separate the clock signal (not shown) originally received by the gate driver 42 from the first enable signal emOE1, the second enable signal emOE2, or The third enabling signal emOE3 is integrated into the same signal, so the number of input signal pins on the gate driver 42 can be omitted by three while still meeting the operating requirements of the display device 4. In addition, the starting signal generating circuit 101 in this embodiment may also be configured in the gate driver 42. Therefore, please refer to FIG. 5 together. FIG. 5 is a functional block diagram of a display device according to another embodiment of the present invention. . Among them, some components in FIG. 5 that are the same as those in FIG. 4 are marked with the same reference numerals, so details are not described in detail here.

In the display device 5 of FIG. 5, the gate driver 52 actively includes a start signal generating circuit 101. Since the start signal i-STP that multiple shift register circuits 520 in the gate driver 52 must receive in common can be generated by the start signal generating circuit 101 in the gate driver 52, the gate The number of input signal pins on the driver 52 is omitted again. In a word, the present invention does not limit the specific configuration position of the initial signal generating circuit 101. Those with ordinary knowledge in the technical field should be able to design according to actual needs or applications.

In addition, the specific implementation of the start signal generating circuit 101 can also be as described in the previous embodiment, so the details will not be described in detail here. Furthermore, because the present invention may additionally design a set of waveforms of the first to third enabling signals emOE1 to emOE3 to generate the start signal i-STP, the first signal generated by the timing controller 40 is The waveforms of the third enabling signals emOE1 to emOE3 can also be as described in the foregoing embodiment, so the details will not be described in detail here.
