Automotive 144-zone local dimming backlight enhances display

Automotive 144-zone local dimming backlight enhances display
This local dimming backlight reference design from Texas Instruments, conserves power, extends the life of liquid-crystal displays (LCDs), and enhances automotive display quality through high dynamic range (HDR) or localised dimming technology. Seven multi-channel constant-current LED drivers allow for 144-zone localised dimming via pulsewidth modulation (PWM) on-time and current-level brightness configuration.
