While waiting for a BENQ XL2411T monitor to arrive for testing, peckB from esreality forums, sent me this gem of a URL:
Semtech.com – Specialized backlight LED drivers
This could present some interesting electronics to experiment with for strobed backlights, such as the Semtech SC442 or similar. They are available in sample quantities. Although the Arduino scanning backlight/strobed backlight project project may not utilize these, these may be useful for other custom strobed backlight projects.
