GOA (Gate On Array) Means Display Bezels Disappear

“Gate Driver on Array Circuit” patent US20150009113 A1:

Recently, the development of LCD tends to high integration and low costs. A very important technology is gate drive on array (GOA) mass production technology, which uses gate drive on array technology to integrate the gate switching circuits on the array substrate of the liquid crystal panel, acting as shift register, so that the gate driver IC can be saved and then reduces the product costs from material costs and process steps.

GOA enables bezel-less displays. AU Optronics (AUO) started shipping bezel-less UHD LCD TV panels in Q1’16 according to DIGITIMES, probably the same 4.7-mm thick 65-inch UHD 4K LCD TV panel AUO announced last August.
