the same as long as the screen size was the same the chip you are
referring too is a power converter for the back light which increases
the voltage at a amperage to make the bulb work. board was actually
the mos common thing to break on the iBooks because it was glued to
the front of the screen casing right below the screen and literally a
drop of any conductive liquid would kill it in a split second.
