Title
(EN) Driving circuit of LED for liquid crystal backlight, control circuit thereof, and electronic device
Abstract
(EN)

A control circuit of a driving circuit of a backlight LED is provided. The driving circuit includes a DC/DC converter that supplies a driving current to the backlight LED. The control circuit includes a pulse signal generating circuit configured to switch between a quasi-resonant mode and a continuous current mode to generate a pulse signal based on a selected mode and a driver configured to drive the DC/DC converter based on the pulse signal.
