A field-sequential-color (FSC) liquid crystal display (LCD) technique with a direct-lit red, green, and blue LED backlight driver is proposed to achieve low weight, thin, perfect image quality, and low-power consumption of LCD television. The FSC technique performs a pseudorandom color sequence in the spatial and temporal domains to reduce color-breakup and motion-blur effects. The direct-lit RGB-LED backlight driver increases brightness, contrast, and uniformity due to the removal of a color filter. In this paper, the proposed FCS-LCD controller uses a single LED driver to switch the driving voltage alternatively between 36 V for driving 12-series G- or B-LEDs and 24 V for 12-series R-LEDs. The proposed energy-recycling technique can harvest the extra energy when the driving voltage switches from 36 to 24 V. Experimental results show that energy saving is higher than 17% of the conventional driving method.
