LCDs, or liquid crystal displays, have come a long way to deliver the level of quality people enjoy today in TV viewing. A big jump from the bulky CRT of yesteryears, an LCD is made up of liquid crystals that are activated by an electric current, allowing the display to produce sharper images in thinner form factors. The process that a single LCD panel goes through requires hundreds of individual steps. A reputable LCD module manufacturer makes sure that each LCD undergoes all these steps and is created with high precision. Components The basic components of an LCD are a display glass, a drive and control electronics, a mechanical package, and power supply. LCDs are made under tight and highly controlled environments and conditions, with special devices that ensure that dust particles are kept out of the room. The manufacturing process specifically requires that there are less than 10 particles of dust per cubic feet in the room.

When it comes to digital display tech, you’ll likely hear of three major terms: LCD, LED, and Plasma. You see of a lot of TVs, for example, bear these tags at your local appliance dealers. But have you ever heard of OLED before? While it may sound like entirely new tech, OLED really isn’t that novel. It has been in the consumer electronics market for the past 14 years in some form or another, particularly for mobile phones. Times have changed, however, and OLED has already conquered TV sets from Samsung’s to LG’s, as well as offerings from various LCD display module manufacturers like Microtips Technology. However, what makes OLED better than a typical LED or LCD TV?

Capacitive touch is the pioneer of touchscreen technology, dating back to the mid-1960s and paving the way for other succeeding technologies. It remains the most widely used touchscreen technology today, from LCD module displays to consumer tablets and smartphones. Before all these, however, capacitive touch helped to keep air travel safer. Eric Arthur Johnson designed the first touchscreen in 1965 at the Royal Radar Establishment in the U.K. for air traffic control. The device naturally was a far cry from today’s touchscreens. The first models could only process commands one touch at a time. By today’s standards, certainly not quite ideal for the task of coordinating with dozens of planes in airspace.
