Owing to the special running environment of the automotive display, the reliability is a key role in the design of the display. The reliability includes almost all optical performance (i.e. contrast ratio, visual angle, luminance, chroma), temperature tolerance, long running stability and the life of products.The performance of all these reliability factors root from the composition ofthe display, which means that only the high reliability materials must beadopted in the production of automotive displays. Because the functions of materials used in each layer of panel are different, the reliability standard of these materials is entirely different, except for the strong heat and lightstability. Therefore, to improve and develop the high reliability materials correspondingto specific layers is a complex and necessary process, which can satisfy thehigh environment requirement of the automotive display.
