CCFL inverters take up less board space

Endicott Research’s LDS Series of (DC/AC) inverters, in a compact form factor, power up to four cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) for LCD backlighting applications. The inverters, measuring just 5.24-by-1.22 inches and less than 0.36 inch high, are suited for LCDs measuring 6.4-by-12.1 inches on the diagonal.
