Abstract

The new generation of Motorola Alpha-numeric products support dual message display mode. The first is a line by line mode that displays a message one screen at a time. The second is a scroll mode that displays the message by scrolling it across the screen one column at at time. In cold temperatures (below 0 degrees C), the message becomes unread- able when the scroll mode is selected due to the slow response time of the LCD display in low tem- perature environments. The message is fully read- able in line-by-line mode at -10 degrees C (pagers operating range spec) since the data on the display remains on screen for the duration of the screen time-out which makes LCD response time negligible.
