<a href=ccfl backlights for LCDs" ALIGN="RIGHT">Endicott Research Group's E200II and SE/SE2 series inverters for powering the cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlights for LCDs feature a vacuum-encapsulated design to ensure reliable lamp ignition in rough environments. As such, they're suited to medical diagnostic equipment, industrial instrumentation and point-of-sale displays.

"If you have a CCFL-backlit LCD in an application where shock, vibration or humidity are a concern, " said Bill Abbott, global market strategist, "these are the most reliable power source available anywhere. " The inverters feature operating efficiencies of 80 to 85 percent (typical), and are designed and tested using the actual LCD display assembly to ensure system compatibility. The company's customized magnetics are self-shielding to minimize EMI and RFI interference.

The E200II, measuring 0.6(H)-by-1.2(W)-by-1.56(L) inches can deliver up to eight watts for powering one or two CCFLs. The low profile SE series, measuring 0.42(H)-by-0.75(W)-by-2.98(L) inches (HWL), provides up to 5W for single CFFL backlights, and the SE2 series is for two-lamp configurations.

All inverters carry a one-year warranty. Pricing starts at $8.55 each in production quantities. Delivery is 4 weeks A.R.O.
