A very high contrast liquid crystal display ( VHC ) was developed. The VHC is based on 3 technologies; light shielding black mask, the positive mode twisted nematic configuration and an inversed driving method. Maximum contrast ratio exceeds 1,000, and thus it realizes a "bleed-through" free dashboard display. The VHC has some additional advantages, such as little temperature dependence in ON-color, fast switching speed and so on. Typical usages of the VHC in the instrument panels are described.
