Abstract

In a liquid crystal matrix addressed display system, the displayed characters are formed between the apparent intersections of a horizontal and a vertical series of striped electrodes. This configuration is shown in Figure 1. The resulting character in the case of a 5 by 9 line character matrix is shown in Figure lA, which is the result of composing the character from a series of squares fixed in location by the matrix. The image created by the squares suffers from legibility due to the impossibility of having the squares reproduce the curves of the letter or the diagonal portions without a "staircase effect".
