LCD backlit power specialist Endicott Research Group (ERG) is offering two new LED driver boards that provide compact, economical solutions to OEM panel designers and include FFC/FPC compatibility.
The new SFDK Series is a high-efficiency, dual-output driver board with connectors on both sides of the PCB for powering LED BLUs in LCDs up to 22” diagonal. The SFDK offers FPC (flat panel compatible) headers in addition to the standard wire-to-board connections, with the interface between the driver and panel consisting of 0.5 mm flat flex cable (FFC). The SFDK has an extremely low profile (<8 mm high) and a compact size – 1.15” (29.2 mm) x 4.59” (116.5 mm).
ERG’s new SFD2E LED driver packs high power into a compact board (1.115” (28.32 mm) wide x 4.585” (116.5 mm) long, with a profile of <10 mm). Ideal for high-power, high-brightness LED BLUs used in LCDs in the 10.4” – 24” diagonal range, it can efficiently drive up to 8 LED strings from one output at a maximum current of 480 mA.
