A core component for notebooks, FPDs are finding increasingly broad applications in desktop and other systems. Several FPD technologies are available, including liquid crystal display (LCD), gas plasma, electroluminescent, field emission display and digital micromirror devices. The most mature FPD technology is LCD, which includes active-matrix and passive-matrix varieties. See LCD.
