Short for Field Emission Display
, it is a flat-panel display where a grid of electron emitters are controlled by cold cathodes to generate color light. FEP technology combines flat panel technology
with the high quality of a CRT
display but requires less power than a CRT. This technology was first announced by Candescent Technologies under the name “ThinCRT”, but in 2004, Candescent filed for bankruptcy. Presently PixTech, Inc. is one company using FED technology.
