LCD Backlights


New member
Does anyone know what different methods there are to implement LED backlights the only one I know off is using different color LED's to illuminate the LCD through a transflective backing....

Are there any other ways of illumination?
What is done in the case of flex tail (FPC) LCD's in terms of LED mounting or is there some other method of illumniation for this.

Another question is regarding LED colours what are the most common colours - green red etc.

I noticed there is "array" and "edge" type lighting is this done using LED's aswell?
