TFT

TFT stands for Thin Film Transistor.

TFTs are also known as “Active Matrix TFT LCD modules” and have an array of these thin film transistors fabricated on the glass that makes the LCD.

There is one of these transistors for each pixel on the LCD. For a typical small color TFT LCD with a resolution of 800×480, there are over a million transistors!

By using this active transistor-per-pixel architecture, the contrast of each pixel is good, allowing bright full-color, full motion images to be displayed.
