CCFL Brightness Controller
ISL6884 controls Pulse Width Modulated Dimming for up to
8 inverters to supply power to up to 40 Cold Cathode
Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL) for back lighting in large LCD
The ISL6884 brightness controller provides an I2C interface
for dimming control, enable, status, and brightness balance.
The duty cycle of all 8 DPWM outputs is adjusted with a
Master Brightness Control register. The duty cycle of each of
the 8 DPWM outputs can be offset from the master
brightness to adjust for uniform brightness.
The PWM dimming frequency can be set by an internal,
adjustable oscillator or synchronized to an external source to
minimize interference with video.
ISL6884’s slave address is:
• 1101_1111 for reading
• 1101_1110 for writing

NOTE: Intersil Pb-free plus anneal products employ special Pb-free
material sets; molding compounds/die attach materials and 100%
matte tin plate termination finish, which are RoHS compliant and
compatible with both SnPb and Pb-free soldering operations. Intersil
Pb-free products are MSL classified at Pb-free peak reflow
temperatures that meet or exceed the Pb-free requirements of
IPC/JEDEC J STD-020.
