External pullup and pulldown resistors may be used to provide enough of an offset to enable an input fail-safe under open-circuit conditions. This configuration ties the positive LVDS input pin to VDD through a pullup resistor, and the negative LVDS input pin is tied to GND by a pulldown resistor. The pullup and pulldown resistors should be in the 5 kΩ to 15 kΩ range to minimize loading and waveform distortion to the driver. The common-mode bias point should ideally be set to approximately 1.2 V (less than 1.75 V) to be compatible with the internal circuitry. Refer to application note AN-1194 Fail-Safe Biasing of LVDS Interfaces (SNLA051) for more information.
