A Modified Stripe-RGBW TFT-LCD with Image-Processing Engine for Mobile Phone Displays

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' A Modified Stripe-RGBW TFT-LCD with Image-Processing Engine for Mobile Phone Displays ' This paper presents a modified stripe-RGBW (MS-RGBW) color filter structure to keep the same high resolution, and obtain a higher brightness in comparison with conventional RGB color filters. An image-processing engine is also designed to achieve sharp text image for thin-film-transistor (TFT) LCD with the MS-RGBW color filter. In MS-RGBW color filter structure, each pixel with three sub-pixels is the same area to that in the conventional RGB stripe color filter, and each row shifts two sub-pixels. The image-processing engine consists of two new algorithms: RGB-RGBW mapping algorithm and sub-pixel rendering algorithm. The RGB-RGBW mapping algorithm obtains a new RGBW image data without distortion in hue and saturation. The sub-pixel rendering algorithm transfers RGBW data into a MS-RGBW color filter structure in order to achieve sharp text image. Numerous simulation results are provided to illustrate the merits and performance of the proposed techniques. The usefulness of the proposed techniques for mobile phone displays is exemplified by conducting several experimental results on a 2.2-inch TFT LCD.
