FSTN

(Film Compensated STN) A passive matrix LCD technology that uses a thin film optical filter layer between the STN display and front polarizer to change the default colors from blue on yellow-green to black on silver-gray. This is a common technology for many character and graphic panels with resolutions of 320x240 or less. FSTN used in dual-scan mode (see DSTN) was used extensively in early laptops. See LCD types.
