The in-plane-switching (IPS) mode exhibits an inherently wide viewing angle and has been widely used for liquid-crystal-display (LCD) TVs. However, its transmittance is limited to similar to 76% compared to that of a twisted-nematic (TN) cell if a positive-dielectric-an isotropy LC is employed. A special electrode configuration that fuses the switching mechanism of the conventional IPS and the fringe-field switching (FFS) to boost the transmittance to similar to 90% using a positive LC has been developed. The new mode exhibits an equally wide viewing angle as the IFS and FES modes.
