The LVDS driver and receivers in this data sheet are designed to operate from a single power supply. Both drivers and receivers operate with supply voltages in the range of 2.4 V to 3.6 V. In a typical application, a driver and a receiver may be on separate boards, or even separate equipment. In these cases, separate supplies would be used at each location. The expected ground potential difference between the driver power supply and the receiver power supply would be less than |±1 V|. Board-level and local device-level bypass capacitance should be used and are covered in Driver Bypass Capacitance.
