A Novel Time Based Current Compensator for LED Back Light Modules
The paper proposes a novel time based brightness compensation circuit for LED back light modules. The brightness of LED decays while running under constant current driven condition. We have designed a suitable controller to compensate the driving currents to maintain the brightness. The compensation data were calculated from the relative luminous efficiency – time curve provided by the LED manufacturer and were stored in the microprocessor. -The embedded system used the running time of the LED in the back light module as an independent variable for tuning the driving current. The experiment results showed that the brightness of different operating times’ LED arrays can be held almost the same as the new ones.
