Pentacene organic thin-film transistors (TFTs)-driven active matrix organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays has been investigated. This letter addresses several process issues unique to this type of display which are important in achieving bright and uniform displays. A bottom contact structure was used to fabricate the pentacene TFT backplane. Polyvinyl alcohol and parylene were used to isolate the pentacene active layer and passivate the backplane. The low processing temperature may allow the use of polymeric substrates and lower cost processing. Uniform TFT performance is achieved with reasonably good mobility and on/off ratio on the back lane. The initial OLED display performance is also presented.
