Transflective TFT from 2.2" to 4.3"
Next Vision Display introduces a new series of small TFT LCD (<4,3”) adapted to outdoor applications: The Transflective TFT. A transflective liquid-crystal TFT display is a liquid-crystal display (LCD) that reflects and transmits light (transflective is a portmanteau of transmissive and reflective). Under bright illumination (e.g. when exposed to daylight) the display acts mainly as a reflective display with the contrast being constant with illuminance. When an illuminance sensor is added for control of the backlight such a transflective LCD, it can be read over a wide range of illuminance levels. This technique is often found in automotive instrumentation. In portable electronic devices the transflective mode of operation helps to save battery charge, since in bright environments no backlighting is required.
