Paper Abstract

A new technology is presented that enables liquid crystal displays (LCDs) to have temperature-independent characteristics. This work shows how severely the color image quality of LCDs is affected by the ambient temperature change in addition to showing how the ambient temperature considerably affects the motion image quality of overdriven LCDs. Transmittance-voltage curve-shifting technology is proposed to compensate for the color change owing to temperature change. This new technology reduces a half-maximum luminance error from 24% to 6% over the temperature range from 0°C to 50°C. The linear overdrive (OD) technology over the wide temperature is presented to overcome the temperature-dependent characteristics of LCDs. With this technique, the distribution of the OD error is reduced by 65%. The color and motion image quality of LCDs can be kept the same with these techniques, regardless of temperature.
