June 20, 2012 // By T. Stonewall, E. Bleak, Sharp Microelectronics
Many manufacturers of LCD modules are moving to LED-backlit units, responding to increasing customer demand for LED-backlit modules. LED backlights offer several advantages over CCFTs, with the primary reason being power savings, followed by the absence of mercury and superior low temperature operation. This paper covers key design considerations an engineer needs to understand to make the switch.
