The SN65MLVD20xx devices are multipoint low-voltage differential (M-LVDS) line drivers and receivers that are optimized to operate at signaling rates up to 100 Mbps. All parts comply with the multipoint low-voltage differential signaling (M-LVDS) standard TIA/EIA-899.

The SN65MLVD20xx devices have enhancements over their predecessors. Improved features include controlled slew rate on the driver output to help minimize reflections from unterminated stubs, which results in better signal integrity. Additionally, 8-kV ESD protection on the bus pins for more robustness. The same footprint definition was maintained making for an easy drop-in replacement for a system performance upgrade.

The devices are characterized for operation from –40°C to 85°C.
