Macroblock Launches New 16-Bit PWM LED Driver with 8-Bit Digital Dot Correction for High-End LED Display

Macroblock launches a new 16-bit PWM LED driver with 8-bit digital dot correction, MBI5040. To provide uniformed LED brightness and accurate LED color for high-end LED display panels, “matched LEDs” are insufficient, and dot correction of each LED pixel becomes necessary. However, it is costly and complex to process dot correction through controllers for the increasing loading of the controllers and the limited control of LED pixels.

LED Digital Display

LED digital display is a semi-conductive lighting component, with light emitting diode (LED) as its elementary unit. By the number of segments the digital display is made of, there are 7-segment digital displays and 8-segment ones, with the latter with one more LED unit (also displays one more decimal point) than the former. By the number of the figure “8” displayed, there are 1-digit, 2-digit, 4-digit LED digital displays and so on. And by the way in which the LED units are connected, there are common anode digital displays and common cathode digital displays.
