1. An electrochromic rearview mirror assembly for a vehicle, comprising:

  • an electrochromic reflective element having an electrochromic cell, wherein said reflective element colors to a partial reflectance level in response to a drive signal applied to said electrochromic cell; and

    a drive circuit which applies a pulsed drive signal to said electrochromic cell in order to establish said partial reflectance level of said reflective element, said drive circuit controlling said partial reflectance level at least as a function of the duty cycle of said pulsed drive signal.
