Don’t Get Cold Feet with Your ASIL-B, Cold-Crank Specifications
In this design solution, we show how a TFT-LCD display backlight can meet the automobile’s toughest requirements. We demonstrate how the MAX25024 automotive backlight driver offers comprehensive diagnostics, I2C capability, and critical circuit redundancy that meet ASIL-B functional safety requirements. A clever design allows the MAX25024 to meet and exceed cold-crank specification for flicker-free automotive display operation. High integration yields a small IC, lower BOM costs, and smaller PCB size.
