DSTN – Double Super Twisted Nematic
DSTN is a passive-matrix display technology, an improvement on STN technology, that splits the LCD screen in two sections.
E-Paper displays, also referred to as E-Ink displays, are extremely low power, monochrome displays which are designed to look like ink on a piece of paper. They are reflective displays meaning they have no backlight and therefore use very little power.
FFSTN – Double Foil compensated Twisted Nematic
A variation of the Super Twisted Nematic Display providing better optical performance.
FSTN – Foil/Film compensated Super Twisted Nematic
A variation of the Super Twisted Nematic Display providing better optical performance
HVGA – Half VGA
A display resolution which is half the size of a VGA (commonly 480 x 320)
IPS – In Plane Switching
In-Plane Switching (IPS) is a display technology that overcomes the viewing limitations of conventional TFT-LCDs. It is also known as Super TFT.
LCD – Liquid Crystal Display
A display that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals.
MIPI-DSI - Mobile Industry Processor Interface
A specification of the MIPI alliance aimed at reducing the cost of display controllers in a mobile device
OCA – Optically Clear Adhesive
An optically clear liquid adhesive used to bond touchscreens and displays devices to the coverlens
STN – Super Twisted Nematic
A type of passive matrix monochrome liquid crystal display, providing better viewing angles and performance than a TN display
TFT – Thin Film Transistor
A TFT display is a form of Liquid Crystal Display with thin film transistors for controlling the image formation. The TFT technology works by controlling brightness in red, green and blue sub-pixels through transistors for each pixel on the screen.
TN – Twisted Nematic
A very fast, low cost LCD display technology developed in the 1980s
