Active matrix

Definition of the noun Active matrix

What does Active matrix mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. A form of liquid crystal display with a grid of transistors and capacitors that can hold a charge for a limited period of time, contrasted with [term, passive matrix].

Explanation

Active matrix is a type of addressing scheme used in flat panel displays. In this method of switching individual elements of a flat panel display, each pixel is attached to a transistor and capacitor which actively maintain the pixel state while other pixels are being addressed. This is to be contrasted with the older passive matrix technology in which each pixel must maintain its state passively, without being driven by circuitry.
