Conference paper


A simulator for the design of polycrystalline silicon thin film transistors, used for the command of flat panel liquid crystal display pixels, is discribed. This simulator is based on the plolycrystalline silicon specific physical equations. It permits to describe both passing and blocking operating modes.
