The resizing of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) for custom sizes are required in avionics has been successfully demonstrated. There are two key points about resizing; it works and it is cost effective. The AMLCD is definitely more suitable for avionics than CRTs and electromechanical displays. LCDs can be more sunlight readable and more dimmable than CRTs for avionics. However, the COTS LCD, resized or not, custom or not, needs to be ruggedized with suitable back light, packing, etc., and successfully tested before it is qualified for avionics applications.
