TE Connectivity Circuit Protection Design Considerations for LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV Power Supplies and I/O Ports
As LCD TV screens grow bigger, and brighter, they require more power to operate, increasing the need for more robust and reliable circuit protection techniques.
A variety of circuit protection devices can be used to help protect the LCD screen from damage caused by excessive current or voltage transients. Overcurrent protection may take the form of a fuse or a resettable PPTC (polymeric positive temperature coefficient) device. Deciding whether to specify a PPTC device or a single-use fuse depends on the LCD design, the types of threats the device may be exposed to, and the relevant safety requirements.
TE Connectivity offers a broad range of overcurrent, overvoltage and ESD suppression devices, for a variety of LCD TV applications such as:
- Multi-output Power Supply Protection
- CCFL Backlighting Protection
- LED Backlighting Protection
- Overcurrent and Overvoltage Protection for I/O Ports
