Kevin, for the EMC 2324 as it shows on the images you uploaded, the LCD backlight driver has reference designator U9701. It is a LP8543SQX manufactured by TI. the datsheet is available right here. The part itself seems to be a bit hard to come by, but it is available :-) Hope this helps, good luck.
