The granted patent (Publication Number: US11887529B2) discloses a pixel array comprising a plurality of pixels, each consisting of a light emitting diode, transistors, and control signals. The configuration includes a first transistor receiving data and scan signals, a second transistor connected to the LED, a third transistor receiving system voltage, a fourth transistor linked to an adjacent pixel's LED, and a fifth transistor managing system voltage levels.

Furthermore, the patent details additional features such as a sixth transistor connecting to the adjacent pixel's LED, different control signals for enabling light emission and scanning periods, and a compensation circuit involving capacitors and transistors. The arrangement of control signals ensures precise timing for activating the LEDs in each pixel, enhancing the overall performance and efficiency of the pixel array. Additionally, the inclusion of the compensation circuit helps in maintaining stability and accuracy in controlling the light emission process within the array, contributing to improved display quality and reliability.
