In this paper, a novel compensation algorithm is proposed for improving multi‐frame drop (MFD) on AMOLED display. The MFD phenomenon occurs as the image switching or sliding when the display with extremely low brightness, resulting in the color shift and distortion at the edge of moving objects. Because the current is too small and the emission time is too short at extremely low brightness, more than one frame is needed to alleviate the impact of the parasitic capacitance between the gate and drain node of driving TFT (DTFT), and the gradual changing of drain voltage (VD) causes the DTFT to move from the linear to saturation region, which also aggravates this phenomenon. This paper analyzes the MFD phenomenon based on the existing 7T1C pixel circuits, records the grayscale changes of multiple frames, and gives the different offsets at dropped frames. By experiment results, this method is not changing the pixel circuit, such as the 8T1C, which could compensate for the dropped frames for reducing MFD issues and is easily implemented in the display driver IC for many different OLED panels.
