Paper Abstract

Using a 12 by 12 micrometers pixel cell and 1.0 micrometers deign rules, a 0.7-inch diagonal 1280 by 1024 active matrix electroluminescent (AMEL) display has been designed and demonstrated using a silicon-on-insulator based CMOS technology. The display accepts data at 100 MHz via eight data inputs and provides five bits of gray scale. A total of 24 connections are used for all display functions. Architecture, theory of operation, and detailed specification for this new 2000 line-per-inch display will be discussed. The display is the same size as Planar's previously developed AMEL 640 by 480 arrays, thus providing over tour times the number of pixels in the same footprints as the prior design. The display provides workstation resolution in an extremely compact format and offers the same environmental robustness and optical performance as previously demonstrated in 1000 line-per-inch AMEL displays.
