Direct LED Backlight Arrangements Improve Performance

Dialog Semiconductor says that large panel displays are transitioning from the conventional edge-lit configuration to multi-segment direct backlight arrangements that offer performance improvements, including higher dynamic range and longer lifetime. Dialog’s patented AnyMode™ technology increases the display contrast ratio, facilitates faster image fadeout, and reduces motion blur. Dialog says combining its AnyMode LED technology and ams’LED driver assets will make the company a worldwide leader in display backlight technologies and will help Dialog better serve customers in high-value display applications.
