Displ ay technology
TFT LCD display technology is common in notebooks and laptop computers. Over the years the displays have slowly replaced old CRT screens. The TFT LCD display consists of a grid of pixels. The technology uses a transistor to drive each pixel. Having a transistor driver for each pixel means that the pixels can be switched on and off easier and faster. The TFT design embedded in the screen also reduces crosstalk between the pixels. Crosstalk is when the signal for one pixel bleeds or crosses over onto another pixel. Reduced crosstalk provides better resolution, thus improving image quality.
TFT LCD technology is the standard for small display screens. The connection framework of the small display purchased for this project is designed to plug directly into Pi male header from the female header on the display, eliminating the need for bulky video cables.
