FIP (Fluorescent Indicator Panel) System Interface Considerations for Automotive Applications 860181
This paper discusses the latest progress in the development of Fluorescent Indicator Panels from a system interface point of view. Improvements in packaging and mounting, electronic control circuit interfaces, and multicolor displays are described and illustrated.
THE FLUORESCENT INDICATOR PANEL (FIP®) is widely used in automotive electronic displays because of its eye-pleasing colors and easy readability and its flexibility in graphics design. The increasing usage has resulted in mechanical improvement to more effectively utilize the space available, electrical improvement for microprocessor control, and optical improvement for multicolor capability.
