Accordig to the vendor, it is very easy to exchange the existing part by the Smart bridge: Remove the inverter, plug in the footprint-compatible Smart Bridge module, and connect the input cable from the existing power supply or controller to the Smart Bridge. The Smart Bridge module converts the Power · Ground · Enable · Control signals and mates directly to the LCD via a small harness, powering the new backlight driver correctly. This avoids the time-consuming and expensive alternative of system re-design.
ERG currently offers three versions of the Smart Bridge module. The standard version ( SBD4212F) is a Smart Bridge Pass-Through with Integrated PWM Dimming and operates from a typical 12V signal. The Smart Bridge DC-DC Converter with Integrated PWM Dimming ( SBDCD4213F) is designed for applications requiring a step-up conversion from 5V to 12V. The third version is the Smart Bridge DC-DC Converter Without Dimming ( SBDC4227F). The Smart Bridge modules are available in the footprint of most inverters, and custom footprints are available.
