This paper reviews the past accomplishments, summarizes the present status, and extrap-olates into the future the growth of flat-panel displays. An overview of the technologies and accomplishments of the past that have led to successful liquid crystal, light-emitting diode, gas discharge, and electroluminescent displays is presented. The six basic limitations of efficiency, addressability, contrast, gray scale, color, and cost that have so far inhibited flat-panel technologies from replacing the CRT are discussed.
