Paper Abstract

Continuing advances in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) flat panel display components offer attractive opportunities for reducing overall display head costs while improving display performance as well as packaging efficiencies in size, weight, and power. Capturing these benefits requires consideration of multiple engineering and manufacturing trade-offs and can seem overwhelming to system integrators. Modification and/or integration of optical, mechanical and electronic components can be required to meet environmental or usage requirements which frequently exceed the performance envelope of COTS components. This study focuses on how to determine which trade-offs are important in particular applications and how to evaluate trade-off opportunities for cost and performance while maintaining conformance with application requirements.
