As a result, the white-LED backlight is increasingly common in PDAs, cell-phones, digital cameras, and other portable devices. A design in which the display is backlit (or frontlit) for extended periods needs an efficient circuit that drives the LEDs with a controlled current, and eliminates the wasted power associated with current-limiting resistors. A switch-mode boost design that regulates current instead of voltage accomplishes this purpose (Figure 1).
