The SN65MLVD204B device is a multipoint-low-voltage differential (M-LVDS) line drivers and receivers which are optimized to operate at signaling rates up to 100 Mbps. This device family has robust 3.3-V drivers and receivers in the standard SOIC footprint for demanding industrial applications. The bus pins are robust to ESD events, with high levels of protection to human-body model and IEC contact discharge specifications.

The SN65MLVD204B combine a differential driver and a differential receiver (transceiver), which operate from a single 3.3-V supply. The transceivers are optimized to operate at signaling rates up to 100 Mbps.

The SN65MLVD204B has enhancements over similar devices. Improved features include a controlled slew rate on the driver output to help minimize reflections from unterminated stubs, resulting in better signal integrity. The same footprint definition was maintained, allowing for an easy drop-in replacement for a system performance upgrade. The devices are characterized for operation from –40°C to 85°C.

The SN65MLVD204B M-LVDS transceivers are part of TI’s extensive M-LVDS portfolio.
