1 June 2011 Evolution of LED backlighting in avionics displays
Author Affiliations +
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have realized substantial advancements over the past twelve years since Rockwell Collins began designing LED backlights, resulting in performance improvement and cost reduction for avionics displays. Display and backlight packaging approaches have evolved to address the challenges associated with these LED improvements and the backlight emitter count reductions that followed. The objective of this paper is to discuss the backlight and display packaging design adaptations that helped avionics displays benefit from these LED improvements.
