The document covers monochrome and color LCD operation in the transmissive mode within the visual spectrum (the wavelength range of 380 to 780 nm). These procedures are adaptable to reflective and transflective displays paying special attention to the source illumination geometry.
Generally, the procedures describe manual single point measurements. The individual procedures may be readily incorporated into automated testing equipment (ATE) or other automated environments. This also includes, but is not limited to Fourier scopes and video imaging devices.
This document defines three classes of tests. Each class of test is applicable to the different phases of a product's life [e.g., engineering development (Class 1), production/quality assurance (Class 2) and service/flight readiness (Class 3)]. The test requirements for each of these phases differ and hence the test procedures for each test class may differ. Each procedure in this document is Class 1 unless otherwise stated
