Brightness adjusting device and method for dynamically adjusting brightness of backlight module

The present invention relates to a brightness adjusting device and a method for dynamically adjusting the brightness of a backlight module, and in particular, the present invention relates to a brightness adjusting device capable of improving the picture quality of a dynamic backlight technology and a method for dynamically adjusting the brightness of the backlight module.

Compared with the conventional cathode ray tube (CRT) display, the liquid crystal display has the advantages of small volume, low power consumption, low radiation and the like. Through the development of all walks of life, LCD monitors have become one of the mainstream monitors on the market.

The liquid crystal panel of the liquid crystal display itself does not emit light, but the light emitted by the backlight module disposed on the back surface of the liquid crystal panel penetrates the liquid crystal panel to allow the user to observe the light emitting effect. In general electronic products, such as LCD TVs, computer screens, mobile phones or notebook computers, the maximum power consumption of the liquid crystal display used is its backlight module. Therefore, the power saving technology of the backlight module becomes the energy saving of the liquid crystal display. The essential.

In the prior art, a light-emitting diode (LED) having a lower energy consumption has been used as a light-emitting unit of a backlight module, and a backlight backlight module (Dynamic Backlight Control, DBC) is used to reduce the consumption of the backlight module. The way to do it. Referring to FIG. 1, FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram showing a prior art dynamic backlight control system 1. As shown in FIG. 1 , the dynamic backlight control system 1 includes a dynamic backlight control unit 10 and an LED backlight. The module 12, wherein the LED backlight module 12 is coupled to the dynamic backlight control unit 10 and can receive the illumination control signal 100 from the dynamic backlight control unit 10 to emit light. The dynamic backlight control unit 10 can receive the screen information 14 and process the screen information 14 to obtain the liquid crystal control signal 102 and the illumination control signal 100. The liquid crystal control signal 102 can be output to the liquid crystal panel 16 to control the liquid crystal deflection of the liquid crystal panel 16. The illumination control signal 100 can be output to the LED backlight module 12 to control the illumination of the LED backlight module 12.

The illumination control signal may be an analog control signal or a pulse width modulation signal (digital control signal). However, the analog control is more complicated than the digital control using the pulse width modulation signal, and may cause unstable LED characteristics. Therefore, the current dynamic backlight control technology is usually performed with a pulse width modulation signal. The LED backlight module can determine the time of illumination according to the duty ratio of the backlight opening time of the pulse width modulation signal. The pulse width modulation signal can be synchronized with the liquid crystal control signal to control the illumination of the backlight module according to different picture data, thereby achieving the purpose of dynamically saving the energy consumption of the backlight module.

For example, referring to FIG. 2, FIG. 2 is a characteristic diagram of the dynamic backlight control system 1 of FIG. 1 dynamically controlling the backlight module 10 by using a pulse width modulation signal. As shown in FIG. 2, the dynamic backlight control unit 10 can analyze the statistical value (for example, the maximum grayscale value in the picture data) in the picture data 14 and determine the reference point X of the picture data 14, and compare the reference point 14 and The characteristic curve F of FIG. 2 controls the backlight backlight opening time ratio Y of the pulse width modulation signal, thereby controlling the illumination characteristics of the backlight module. Since the dynamic backlight control unit 10 can determine the back according to different picture materials 14 The light-emitting characteristics of the light module, so it is a dynamic backlight control technology.

Since the above prior art uses the statistical value of the picture data (for example, the maximum gray level value) as a reference point to dynamically adjust the backlight module to emit light, when the picture has a drastic change (such as an explosion picture), backlight continuity will be caused. A large change in the cause of flicker. In the prior art, the method of reducing the sensitivity of the backlight change can be used to improve the backlight flicker phenomenon. However, this method will cause the change of the backlight to keep up with the change of the picture, resulting in a situation in which some pictures are mismatched (for example, originally required to be compared). High-brightness picture with low-brightness backlight). In addition, using the above improvements will also increase the complexity of the algorithm.

The output unit can generate a pulse width modulation signal according to the ratio of the backlight on time.

In this embodiment, the comparison table stored by the storage unit may correspond to a modulation curve, and the modulation curve represents a correspondence between the ratio of the backlight opening time and the reference value. The modulation curve is a gamma curve and has At a stop loss point, the slopes on either side of the stop loss point are not continuous. When the reference value of the picture data is smaller than the reference value corresponding to the stop loss point, the ratio of the reference value of the picture data to the time backlight on time on the modulation curve is substantially maintained within a range. Therefore, the ratio of the backlight on time obtained by the receiving/processing unit does not cause the picture to flicker due to excessive changes.
