Character LCDs / Re: Driving backlight for NHD-C0220BiZ-FSRGB-FBW-3VM

Thanks. I hadn't noticed that tiny print. It actually doesn't list Vf, but rather suggested supply, ie 1.8-2.2v. Note that the current listed there contradicts what's listed on page 5. Just stating each LED's Vf would be so much simpler.

Anyway, thanks for the answer. I will work with that.

Hi, thanks Michael.

I guess the Vf on those diodes needs to be inferred from the typical voltage vs current in the datasheet? Really, that datasheet is pretty unclear, especially when the reference circuit shows the each LED's cathode going to ground.

Please provide some guidance (LED appx Vf at ~3V would be nice); I'd rather not have to add constant current circuitry to drive a couple of LEDs.

Hello,
I'd like clarification on what the schematic shows to drive the backlight for this device. Basically, no resistors for the cathodes. Is this correct? I plan to drive the anode with 3.3V, same as the rest of the unit. The specs say 1.9V to drive red, 3.0v for green and blue, at 30mA for each. Is that max current handled internally, or should resistors be added to each cathode?
