A time-multiplexing technique employing a pulse-width-modulation (PWM) charge-pump scheme for driving active-matrix organic light-emitting-diodes (AMOLEDs) is described. This scheme greatly reduces the number of control lines. The two- or four-phase PWM driving technique not only reduces costs through the simplification of manufacture but also improves the uniformity and lifetime of OLED panels. Experimental results show that the proposed circuit effectively and precisely controls the timing of OLED data-writing and light emission.
