Backlit displays in portable or handheld devices, whether it be mobile phones, watches or medical diagnostic devices, require high performing, efficient and economic solutions. Backlights illuminate LCDs from behind, increasing the readability in low light conditions for small displays like wristwatches or smartphones. They are also used to produce light in computer displays and LCD televisions.
The DUREL family of solutions provides highly powerful and efficient Integrated Circuit (IC) inverter solutions for driving a wide range of EL displays.
In Electroluminescent (EL) backlighting technology, a material emits light in response to the passage of an electric current or to a strong electric field. EL backlights provide uniform illumination in a thin and flexible material that can be arranged in complex shapes.
