Passive matrix displays based on polymer and organic light-emitting diodes suffer from crosstalk, when the emission of light from one pixel depends on the operation of another pixel. We use circuit simulation in order to explain the causes of crosstalk and to quantify the consequences. This work analyzes how crosstalk arises from electrode resistance, pixel leakage current, and the location of faulty pixels. All factors influence both image uniformity and the power consumption of the display.
