EDS Invited Talk: Large Area Electronics for Active Matrix Displays & Sensors

Title: Large Area Electronics for Active Matrix Displays & Sensors
Abstract: Some features of large area electronics are briefly reviewed from a display perspective. Three examples in the areas of system, array, and device design are presented to demonstrate the importance of each in the overall design. First, the prevalent System-on-Panel (SoP) concept is challenged where the success of Gate-on-Array (GoA) designs does not imply the necessity of integrating other circuits onto the display panel to achieve optimal system operation. Secondly, pixel circuit design must necessarily consider the the whole array perspective because although some single pixel circuits seem to be workable, they fail when integrated into the large area matrix. Lastly, a gap-gate TFT sensing device made in a process that is fully compatible with a thin film transistor is introduced and the issue of instability is discussed.
