I am looking to backlight a small LCD. It is about watch size, about0.5 square inches. I would like to use an EL backlight because it looks like they are more efficient then LED. I am power my device with a 3 volt CR1216. This is about a 20maH battery. There is not much power to spare.
Is anyone familiar with who manufactures EL drivers for a small display like this one?
I wonder if the watch manufactures do their own drivers or if they are using someone driver IC?
