Leadis Technology is making samples of the new LDS8161 and LDS8141 LED drivers available.
Both of the gadgets feature the company's patent-pending LED-Sense temperature compensation engine, reducing the number of white LEDs required for portable displays.
The California-based developer of LED drivers and Touch ICs for mobile consumer electronic devices explained that the design of the drivers means that there is no need for an external temperature sensor.
This feature optimises LED brightness and reliability and the products are targeted at mobile backlighting applications.
Donato Montanari, Leadis vice-president, said: "Today's trend in mobile phones is to increase the size of the display however it is cumbersome and expensive to adopt LED-in-parallel configurations when more then six LEDs are required."
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Leadis Technology specialises in the design, development and marketing of analogue and mixed-signal semiconductors for electronic devices, including capacitive touch controller ICs, LED drivers and colour display drivers.
