What is a Passive Matrix STN Display?
A passive matrix STN display, or passive matrix super-twisted nematic display, has good contrast vs. voltage characteristics. An advantage of STN LCDs when compared to TFT LCDs is the fact that they need less power and that they are less expensive to manufacture than TFT LCDs and can be made purely reflective to view under direct sunlight. A CSTN display, or color super-twist nematic display, is a color passive matrix LCD which uses red, green and blue filters in order to display color.
