The selection of liquid crystal display technology for the microprocessor controlled instrument cluster in the new Chevrolet Corvette allowed the development of a novel and attractive multi-colored display with greatly enhanced driver information features. Polarizers, protective film and masking were specifically selected for the three LCD cells. Lighting and registration challenges were met while maintaining buildability, and electronics and software were developed to perform the many functions and features of the complex design in a reliable fashion.
