The SN75LVDS83B FlatLink™ transmitter contains four
7-bit parallel-load serial-out shift registers, a 7X clock synthesizer, and five Low-Voltage
Differential Signaling (LVDS) line drivers in a single integrated circuit. These functions allow 28
bits of single-ended LVTTL data to be synchronously transmitted over five balanced-pair conductors
for receipt by a compatible receiver, such as the SN75LVDS82 and LCD panels with integrated LVDS
When transmitting, data bits D0 through D27 are each loaded into registers upon the edge
of the input clock signal (CLKIN). The rising or falling edge of the clock can be selected via the
clock select (CLKSEL) pin. The frequency of CLKIN is multiplied seven times, and then used to
unload the data registers in 7-bit slices and serially. The four serial streams and a phase-locked
clock (CLKOUT) are then output to LVDS output drivers. The frequency of CLKOUT is the same as the
input clock, CLKIN.
The SN75LVDS83B requires no external components and little or no control. The data bus
appears the same at the input to the transmitter and output of the receiver with the data
transmission transparent to the user(s). The only user intervention is selecting a clock rising
edge by inputting a high level to CLKSEL or a falling edge with a low-level input, and the possible
use of the Shutdown/Clear (SHTDN). SHTDN is an
active-low input to inhibit the clock, and shut off the LVDS output drivers for lower power
consumption. A low-level on this signal clears all internal registers to a low-level.
The SN75LVDS83B is characterized for operation over ambient air temperatures of 10°C to
Alternative device option: The SN75LVDS83A (SLLS980) is an alternative to the SN75LVDS83B for clock frequency range of
10MHz-100MHz only. The SN75LVDS83A is available in the TSSOP package option only.
