Honeywell provides both the primary flight instruments (EFIS and EICAS) and the FMS Control and Display Unit (CDU) for the Boeing 777 all-glass flightdeck. These instruments feature high resolution, full color, active matrix, liquid crystal display panels. Both the CDU and the D-Size Display Unit features grayscale, very wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles, high contrast with an achromatic background over viewing angle, a large color gamut, temperature compensation for graylevel stability at all operating temperatures, heaters for cold temperature start-up and 100 fL brightness with a 2000:1 dimming range. The display system architecture, optical performance and key LCD technology features are reviewed here.
