The chipmeisters over at Texas
Instruments have come up with a solution for getting a bit more juice to those wimpy LED flashes that all the
cool cameraphones are sporting these
days. The two new chips they’ve developed can zap a white LED with 800 milliamps or 1 amp respectively (a pretty high
power level for such a small LED) which results in correspondingly brighter flashes. “Brighter” is of course relative
to the currently anemic light levels coming out of current cameraphones, but we have a feeling that the inevitable
march towards the cameraphone-slr* means that this is just another step towards a “brighter” future.
