MagnaChip Releases Two New LED Driver ICs for UHD TV BLU

September 28, 2020 Perry Cohen

MagnaChip Semiconductor released two new LED Driver ICs for UHD TV BLU (back light unit). The models are 1- and 2-channel units that were developed for mid-range UHD TVs. The purpose of BLU LED Driver IC, which is a power semiconductor, is to deliver consistent lighting across the LED display panel.

They feature high contrast ratios and improved power efficiency, resulting from the implementation of a combined solution of analog and pulse-width modulation (PWM) dimming technology. This dimming technology allows LEDs to alter intensity in an effort to suit image characteristics.

Short Circuit Protection, Under Voltage Lockout, Over-Duty Protection, Current-Sense Resistor Short Protection, and Drain-Source Short Protection functions are included within the new models. The features offer an advantage in protecting the main circuit by supplying consistent power and preventing a short circuit.

In addition to the 1- and 2-channel ICs, the company also produces 3-channel BLU LED drivers for premium UHD TVs. MagnaChip features a full product line that suits a variety of TV models.
