Title: ACTIVE MATRIX FIELD EMISSION DISPLAY WITH PERIPHERAL DRIVE SIGNAL SUPPLY
Abstract:
A field emission display (110) of the active matrix type is arranged in rows and columns with a current source (126) for each column. As an active matrix display, each pixel circuit (118) in an array of pixel circuits (116) includes a switch for enabling display by that pixel circuit. By locating the current source (126) outside the array (116), for example outside a contour circumscribing the array when the display is formed on a susbstrate, smaller pixel circuit geometries are achieved.
