Title: Method and system for writing data to MEMS display elements

Abstract: Charge balanced display data writing methods use write and hold cycles of opposite polarity during selected frame update periods. The transitions between voltages of opposite polarity are sufficiently brief that the display elements do not change state. A release cycle may be provided to reduce the chance that a given display element will become stuck in an actuated state.
