What is an LED Display Driver?

An LED display driver is an IC (integrated circuit) that provides the circuitry necessary in order to interface most common microprocessors or digital systems to an LED display. Included on an LED display driver may be a static display memory, segment decoders, multiplex scan circuitry and high current segment and digit drivers for displays.

Types of LED Display Drivers

There are many different kinds of LED display drivers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by supply voltage, output current, display mode, number of digits, packaging type and multiplexed display capability. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common values for supply voltage are 2.7 to 5.5 V and 4.75 to 11 V. We also carry LED display drivers with supply voltage up to 20 V. The number of digits can be between 1 and 12, with the most common LED display drivers having 4, 5 or 8 digits.
