Which technology best suits your industrial product design, IPS or TFT?

The most popular display for industrial designs is the tried-and-true TFT, but it has several drawbacks in terms of viewability and color vibrancy. The TFT has been transformed into a super-TFT, but what about the relatively recent technology known as IPS (in plane switching)? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

An IPS-TFT display is what?

The viewing restrictions of traditional TFT-LCDs are solved by in-plane switching (IPS), a technology. It also goes by the name Super TFT.

IPS gets its name from the fact that the liquid-crystal molecules are parallel to the glass plates, as opposed to the TN concept used in traditional TFT displays, which is based on the molecules being aligned perpendicularly. Whether a pixel is on or off in an IPS panel, the crystals stay aligned in parallel.

To ensure that the crystals rotate horizontally in the same plane when the signal is applied, electrodes are positioned on the same sheet of glass rather than on opposite sides.

A TFT display is what?

A TFT display is a type of liquid crystal display where the image generation is controlled by thin film transistors. Transistors are used by the TFT technology to adjust the brightness of each pixel's red, green, and blue sub-pixels. The screen uses a backlight for illumination rather than the pixels, which do not produce light on their own. Learn about our TFT Products.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of an IPS-TFT screen?

An IPS-TFT display has the following advantages:

In contrast to standard TFT, IPS TFT displays strong contrast, and the background is truly black when the display is turned off. This is because the pixels block light when they are turned off.

Improved legibility in daylight

Compared to bright-pixel flaws in a traditional TFT, this is less upsetting.

Additionally, color reproduction is more precise, and contrast and color are more stable from a broader viewing angle.

Maximum visibility is attained in a variety of settings and circumstances, including in daylight.

Use of an IPS-TFT display has drawbacks:

Size ranges for IPS displays are currently rather constrained.

Lower response times

Power usage is increased

Due to their more complicated manufacture, IPS-TFT displays are more expensive than traditional TFTs.

Advantages of a TFT:

Due to mature technology, production yields are high and prices are quite competitive.

obtainable in a variety of sizes

Can be reduced in size without sacrificing performance to fit a certain container

Cons of utilizing a TFT display:

Contrast may be constrained

Inversion of colors can be visible at oblique viewing angles.

When turned off, the display is not entirely black.

The environment, end user, and program all have a role in the display option you choose. A more expensive basic TFT display may be adequate for outdoor use, or a higher-grade IPS may be required.
