The present invention is a current driver for an active matrix organic light emitting device display. As embodied herein, the driver relies upon a single transistor, driven in a saturation regime to provide a current source for an OLED. This results in a pulse drive. The driver of the present invention is compatible with high speed integrated drivers and can be fabricated on the same substrate as the OLED. A technique for driving an OLED is disclosed that will produce a good quality gray scale image.
