What Is Field Sequential Color (FSD)?

What Is Field Sequential Color (FSD)?

Not all liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) are the same. Some of them are designed with different features than others. Rather than using traditional red, green and blue color filters with a white backlighting system, for instance, some LCDs use field sequential color...
What’s the Best Backlighting for LCDs?

What’s the Best Backlighting for LCDs?

You can’t choose a liquid-crystal display (LCD) without considering the backlighting. All LCDs require backlighting. The liquid pixels within them aren’t electroluminescent, so they can’t illuminate themselves. Instead, the liquid pixels require...

How Blue Phase Differs From Other LCD Technologies

Have you heard of blue phase? It’s one of several liquid-crystal display (LCD) technologies. Originating in 2007, blue phase uses liquid crystals like all other LCD technologies. The liquid, organic crystals form the pixels. Blue phase, however, differs from...

How Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) Are Wired

Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) require wiring. All LCDs feature a pixel layer consisting of a liquid organic material. Depending on the resolution, it may have 6 million or more individual pixels. LCDs leverage these pixels to produce images. They must be wired,...
Why LCDs Have Two Polarized Layers

Why LCDs Have Two Polarized Layers

Liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) contain many different layers. They feature a pixel layer, for instance, that contains the liquid pixels. They also feature a backlighting layer that’s responsible for illuminating the liquid pixels. LCDs, however, also feature two...
