DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS

Embodiments of the invention will now be described more fully hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which embodiments of the invention are shown.

FIG. 1 is a schematic view of the liquid crystal panel in accordance with a first embodiment. As shown in FIG. 1, the liquid crystal panel includes a plurality of scanning lines (G1 . . . Gn−1, Gn, Gn+1, Gn+2) parallel to each other, a plurality of data lines (D1 . . . Dm−1, Dm, Dm+1, Dm+2) parallel to each other, and a plurality of pixel areas arranged in a matrix. The data lines intersect with the scanning lines, and the data lines are insulated with the scanning lines. The pixel areas are defined by the scanning lines (G1 . . . Gn−1, Gn, Gn+1, Gn+2) and the data lines (D1 . . . Dm−1, Dm, Dm+1, Dm+2). For instance, the scanning line (Gn) intersects with the data line (Dm) to define one pixel area (Pmn). The pixel area (Pmn) includes a pixel electrode correspondingly connects to the scanning line (Gn) and data line (Dm), wherein m and n are positive integer.

Each of the pixel area further includes two thin film transistors (TFTs) including a first TFT (T1) and a second TFT (T2). The first TFT (T1) is configured for driving the pixel electrode to display images, which is equivalent to the only one TFT within each of the pixel areas within the conventional configuration. In the embodiment, the second TFT (T2) is configured within each of the pixel areas. For instance, the gate (g1) of the first TFT (T1) within the pixel area (Pmn) connects to the scanning line (Gn), the source (s1) connects to the data line (Dm), and the drain (d1) connects to the pixel electrode. The source of the first TFTs (T1) within the same column connect to the same data line, such as data line (Dm), the gate of the first TFT (T1) within the same row connects to the same scanning line, such as the scanning line (Gn). The gate (g2) of the second TFT (T2) connects to the previous scanning line (Gn−1), the source (s2) connects to the pixel electrode within the pixel area (Pmn), the drain (d2) connects to the storage capacitor (C) of the liquid crystal panel. In addition, the drain (d2) of the second TFT (T2) may connect to the pixel electrode within the pixel area (Pmn), and the source (s2) may connect to the storage capacitor (C) of the liquid crystal panel.

The storage capacitor (C) is arranged on the array substrate of the liquid crystal panel, and the storage capacitor (C) is insulated from the pixel electrode so as to form the capacitor with the pixel electrode for temporarily storing the grayscale voltage of the previous frame. In the embodiment, the storage capacitor (C) is bar-shaped. The plurality of bar-shaped storage capacitors (C) parallel to the data lines (D1 . . . Dm−1, Dm, Dm+1, Dm+2) and correspond to the data lines one by one. That is, the storage capacitor (C) connected with the drain (d2) of the second TFT (T2) within the pixel area (Pmn) corresponds to the data line (Dm), and the bar-shaped storage capacitors (C) are connected by peripheral wiring (L1).

During the displaying process, the scanning line (G1 . . . Gn−1, Gn, Gn+1, Gn+2) connects to a gate driver of the liquid crystal panel to receive the gate driving signals provided to the scanning lines in sequence from the gate driver. As such, the first TFT (T1) and the second TFT (T2) corresponding to the scanning lines are turned on. The data lines (D1 . . . Dm−1, Dm, Dm+1, Dm+2) connect to the data driver of the liquid crystal panel to receive the grayscale driving signals provided by the data driver.

When the scanning line (Gn−1) receives the gate driving signals (high level), the second TFT (T2) within the pixel area (Pmn) is turned on such that the grayscale voltage of the previous frame stored in the corresponding capacitor of the pixel area (Pmn) is transmitted to the storage capacitor (C). Similarly, when the scanning line (Gn) receives the gate driving signals, the grayscale voltage is transmitted to the storage capacitor (C) via the second TFT (T2) of the pixel area (Pmn). As the grayscale voltage is driven by alternately inversion of the positive and negative polarity, the grayscale voltage stored in the capacitors formed by the pixel electrode connected with the corresponding scanning line (Gn) and the storage capacitor (C) may include positive polarity and negative polarity, wherein the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors constitutes the common voltage of the liquid crystal panel in a displaying process. In this way, the common voltage may be optimal, that is, balance in its positive and negative sides. Compared to the conventional solution, manual operations or machine's automatic operations are not needed in the present configuration, and thus the manufacturing cost is decreased and the productivity is ensured.

With respect to the vertical alignment (VA) LCDs, a vertical electrical field has to be applied in a displaying process. That is, the electrical field formed by the voltage difference between the common voltage on the color film substrate and the grayscale voltage on the array substrate. Thus, the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors has to be transmitted to the common electrode on the color film substrate. Specifically, a peripheral wirings may connect to the peripheral wiring (L1) to connect with the storage capacitor (C) and the common electrode on the color film substrate.

With respect to the Fringe Field Switching (FFS) and In-plane switching (IPS) liquid crystal panels, the horizontal electrical field, which is formed by the voltage difference between the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors and the grayscale voltage received by the pixel electrode, has to be applied. That is, the peripheral wirings is adopted to connect the peripheral wiring (L1). Thus, the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors has not to be transmitted to the common electrode on the color film substrate.

FIG. 2 is a schematic view of the liquid crystal panel in accordance with another embodiment. To simply the descriptions, the components in the embodiment that are the same with the first one are marked by the same reference numerals, and thus only the differences between the embodiments will be described hereinafter. As shown in FIG. 2, the plurality of bar-shaped storage capacitors (C) are parallel to the data lines (D1 . . . Dm−1, Dm, Dm+1, Dm+2), and the bar-shaped storage capacitor (C) are connected via the peripheral wiring (L2) such that the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors are transmitted to the common electrode on the color film substrate. Regarding the IPS liquid crystal panel, it is not necessary to transmit the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors to the common electrode on the color film substrate.

FIG. 3 is a schematic view of the liquid crystal panel in accordance with another embodiment. To simply the descriptions, the components in the embodiment that are the same with the first embodiment are marked by the same reference numerals, and thus only the differences between the above embodiments will be described hereinafter. As shown in FIG. 3, the storage capacitors (C) include bar-shaped first capacitors (C1) and second capacitor (C2). The first capacitors (C1) are parallel to the scanning lines (G1 . . . Gn−1Gn, Gn+1, Gn−2), and the second capacitor (C2) are parallel to the data lines (D1 . . . Dm−1, Dm, Dm+1, Dm+2). The first capacitors (C1) intersect with the second capacitor (C2), and the first capacitors (C1) are insulated from the second capacitor (C2).

In the embodiment, the operation principles of the liquid crystal panel are the same with the first embodiment. Regarding the VA liquid crystal panel, the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors is transmitted to the common electrode on the color film substrate via the peripheral wiring connecting the peripheral wiring (L1). In addition, another peripheral wiring is adopted to connect the peripheral wiring (L2) to transmit the grayscale voltage stored in the capacitors to the common electrode on the color film substrate. The peripheral wiring (L1) is insulated from the peripheral wiring (L2). Regarding the IPS liquid crystal panel, the peripheral wirings are needed to connect the peripheral wiring (L1) and the peripheral wiring (L2), and it is not necessary to transmit the grayscale voltage stored by the capacitors to the common electrode on the color film substrate by the peripheral wiring (L1) and the peripheral wiring (L2).

FIG. 4 is a flowchart illustrating the driving method of the liquid crystal panel in accordance with one embodiment. As shown in FIG. 4, the method includes the following steps.

In block S41, the scanning lines receive the gate driving signals to turn on the first TFT (T1) and the second TFT (T2) corresponding to each of the scanning lines.

In block S42, the data lines receive the grayscale driving signals such that the grayscale driving signals are applied to the pixel electrode via the first TFT (T1). In addition, before the previous frame is displayed, the grayscale driving signals applied to the pixel electrode are applied to the storage electrode via the second TFT (T2).

The details regarding the transmission of the grayscale signals between the first TFT (T1) and the second TFT (T2) and how the storage electrodes process the applied grayscale driving signals may be referenced in the above embodiments.

In view of the above, each of the pixel areas includes two TFTs, wherein one TFT applies the grayscale driving signals to the pixel electrode, and the other one stored the grayscale driving signals applied to the pixel electrode when the previous frame is displayed. As the positive polarity and the negative polarity of the grayscale driving signals (grayscale voltage) is inversed, the common voltage corresponding to two adjacent frames may be balanced. As such, the optimal common voltage is obtained to guarantee the display performance. Manual operations or machine's automatic operations are not needed in the present configuration, and thus the manufacturing cost is decreased and the productivity is ensured.

It is believed that the present embodiments and their advantages will be understood from the foregoing description, and it will be apparent that various changes may be made thereto without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention or sacrificing all of its material advantages, the examples hereinbefore described merely being preferred or exemplary embodiments of the invention.
