For backlighting of control panels, keypads and displays in medical devices and medical instruments, design engineers require a high level of performance, efficiency and economy. Designers use Electroluminescent (EL) displays where relatively simple passive-matrix monochrome displays are required with geometrical flexibility and brightness of around 30 ft-L. In EL technology, a material emits light in response to the passage of an electric current or to a strong electric field.

Advantages of EL backlighting for medical equipment include uniform illumination of complex shapes, thinness, flexibility and being light weight. Electroluminescent displays require high-voltage inverters, that are powerful, efficient, quiet and economical, and Rogers has industry-leading solutions.
