Terms
The following terms may appear in this User’s Guide.
A
active-matrix display—A liquid crystal display (LCD) made from an 
array of liquid crystal cells using active-matrix technology. Also 
known as a “TFT display,” in its simplest form there is one thin film 
transistor (TFT) for each cell. This type of display works well with 
computers because of its shallow depth and high-quality color. 
Active-matrix displays are viewable from wider angles than most 
passive-matrix displays.
adapter—A device that provides a compatible connection between two 
units. For example, the computer’s internal display adapter receives 
information from the software and translates it into images on the 
screen. An adapter can take a number of forms, from a 
microprocessor to a simple connector. An intelligent adapter (one 
that is capable of doing some processing) may also be called a 
controller.
Alternating Current (AC)—The type of power usually supplied to 
residential and commercial wall outlets. AC reverses its direction at 
regular intervals. Compare Direct Current (DC).
application—A computer program that you use to perform tasks of a 
specific type. Applications include word processors, spreadsheets, 
and database management systems. See also program.
