Paper Abstract

The performance of a display designed for cockpit applications is discussed. This PIN diode driven active matrix liquid crystal display is capable of operating over a wide temperature range (-40 C to +85 C). It has wide viewing angles (+/-50 H and +15/-30 V), grey scale, and full colors. The resolution is 164 lines per inch. The performance of the display over the whole temperature range is presented. The model of the discrimination index for testing the combined contrast-ratios and colors discrimination was applied for this display. Measurements at different ambient-light levels are presented, both for diffused and specular reflections. Contrast ratios, reflections, and color measurements at different viewing angles are used for discrimination index calculations. The high performance of the display with special surface treatment (front and back) in the cockpit environment is discussed based on those measurements and calculations.
