LED Driver Modules power mid-size LED-backlit LCDs.
Press Release Summary:
Feb 25, 2010 - Measuring only 2.782 x 0.96 in., 5 mm high Smart Force(TM) SFDMD Series LED driver modules have input voltage range of 3-20 V, and suit applications in medical patient monitors, POS, kiosk, ATM, gaming and GPS displays. Units can be modified to work from 3.3, 5 or 12 V input voltage, with LED string voltage of up to 38.5 V and output current drive of 30 mA x 6 strings. PWM dimming feature can generate dimming ratio of up to 255:1 via external 0-5 V analog voltage.

New Compact LED Driver Modules from ERG Provide High Performance Plug-and-Play Solutions for Mid-Size, Multi-String, LED-Backlit LCDs
Press release date: Feb 15, 2010
The new SFDMD Series is specifically designed for applications that require a small footprint with high efficiency and brightness stability over a wide input voltage range, such as medical patient monitors, POS, kiosk, ATM, gaming and GPS displays. Less than 5 mm high, with a footprint of only 2.782" (70.66 mm) x 0.96" (24.4 mm), the new SFDMD drivers enhance ERG's existing SFDM (Mini) Series with an even wider input voltage range of 3-20V. They can be modified to work from 3.3V, 5V or 12V input voltage, with an LED string voltage of up to 38.5V and an output current drive of 30 mA x 6 strings. The onboard PWM dimming feature can generate a dimming ratio of up to 255:1 via an external 0-5V analog voltage, which is compatible with most controller cards on the market today. SFDMD Series modules operate at a very high efficiency, ~90%.
"Compared to our closest competitor's module for driving mid-sized LCDs, the SFDMD Series offers a smaller footprint, a wider input voltage range, a higher string voltage, and a higher output current drive," said Scott Barney, Director of Sales and Marketing at ERG. "And when it comes to dimming, our competitor's module offers only 10:1 analog dimming compared to onboard PWM dimming up to 255:1 for the SFDMD Series."
Pricing for ERG's new Smart Force(TM) SFDMD Series LED Driver modules is approximately $18.00 in 1,000-piece quantities. Delivery is typically 4 weeks A.R.O.
