Paper Abstract

Most high performance active matrix liquid crystal displays, AMLCDs, are controlled by a matrix of thin film transistors (TFTs) at the pixel level. Today, the majority of the commercially available AMLCDs use TFTs built with amorphous (a-Si); however, there is a great interest in polysilicon (p-Si) TFTs (1) because of their ability to form circuits to drive the display''s address lines on the same substrate as the AMLCD. This paper will compare the capability of the two technologies to meet the AMLCD requirements for the foreseeable future.
