This paper reviews the importance of device-circuit interactions (DCI) and its consideration when designing thin film transistor circuits and systems. We examine temperature- and process-induced variations and propose a way to evaluate the maximum achievable intrinsic performance of the TFT. This is aimed at determining when DCI becomes crucial for a specific application. Compensation methods are then reviewed to show examples of how DCI is considered in the design of AMOLED displays. Other designs such as analog front-end and image sensors are also discussed, where alternate circuits should be designed to overcome the limitations of the intrinsic device properties.
