Title: A10-OLinuXino-LIME 4.3 LCD backlight PWM control working
Post by: pharscape on August 24, 2014, 06:47:29 PM

The LIME is certainly a lot of fun, I'm working on a project that needs backlight control for 4.3" LCD and now have a solution that works reliably. The result is very good with no flickering at low levels ( which is a problem with a cheap tablet I use).

You need the pwm-sunxi driver to be available and possibly you also have to modify the LCD driver to disable its control of the backlight - the driver isn't doing anything with it as far as I can see.

For more details and some analysis of the backlight circuit have a look here:
