Abstract : A high-contrast, three-color electroluminescent lamp was combined with solid-state control circuitry, to form an altimeter display. The lamp was constructed in a hermetically sealed bezel to assure environmental protection. The control circuitry used DTL integrated circuits in combination with discrete SCR's. The display accepted binary - coded decimal signals. The performance of the display proved the feasibility of combining a high - contrast display with solid - state control electronics to provide a complete solid - state display. (Author)
