Cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) are widely used in the backlighting of TV and PC monitor applications due to their low cost and high efficiency. A 12V or 24V DC voltage is provided for the backlighting inverter to drive the CCFL. To improve the efficiency and performance of the total system both for the AC/DC power supply and inverter, STMicroelectronics has introduced a high-voltage ballast-driver IC L6574 that provides the half-bridge solution for CCFL backlighting. Thanks to BCD offline technology, the L6574 can handle high-side voltage rail up to 600V and consumes less current. Of course, the power loss of the bridge rectifier is reduced.
