A standard way to configure the backlight is to use two discrete devices: a 100 V MOSFET in a DPAK package and a 100 V Schottky diode, also in a DPAK package. High leakage current of Schottky diode can be a problem in LED backlight units, especially at higher temperatures. Some customers have experienced leakage failure issue of Schottky diode during ...

As promised in my last blog, I will start immediately with my discussion of semiconductor sensors. The basic sensor is normally just a diode, and you could stick with just that if it suits your purposes. There are several documents on implementing the diode technique like this one from TI: "Diode-Based Temperature Measurement"; or this from Linear Tech: ...
