A pair of LED drivers from Maxim Integrated Products provides highly compact and simplified designs for driving the high-brightness (HB) LEDs that are now being used in automotive, architectural and ambient lighting applications. The MAX16819...
A major reason for the migration to higher switching frequencies has been the need to reduce the size of the inductor required to complete a dc-dc converter design. As described in a recent Analog Feedback column, switching regulators operating in...
OLEDs in display applications are usually arranged
in a passive matrix. Specialized ICs can simplify
the power design and the implementation of
power management features for these passive
Designers of circuits for driving cold-cathode fluorescent lamps used to backlight LCD-TV sets must understand the various architectures available and the benefits and drawbacks
of each to optimize the design for cost and performance.
