Backlight_test.exe is useful for testing the range of software control for the backlight. It demonstrates how to control backlighting (display brightness) generically for all ADS products.

The application ramps the backlight intensity up and down from min to max 50 times. At level 255 (brightest for LS520 inverter), the backlight turns off briefly.

There is no user interface. Status information is displayed on the
debug port. This application is based on the Vee ramp test.

Key APIs Used


Lines of Code: 380

Notes: Rev 4 of this application dynamically links the ADSmartIO libraries using the ADSmartIO wrapper class.
Graphics Master users may need to still use rev 3 (zip, 18k), which supports its non-ADSmartIO backlight control.

Source Download
Rev 4 (32k zip)

Update: Reverse Polarity Option

Rev 3 of the application adds a conditional define that inverts the logic for turning the backlight inverter on and off.

The zip file includes compiled versions for "standard" (LS520) and inverted logic.

Update: Rev 4 Uses ADSmartIO Wrapper Class

Revision 4 of the application uses the ADSmartIO wrapper class to perform the same test as previous versions. It does not currently include support for more than one polarity of backlight inverter.
