The SN65LVDS049 device is a dual flow-through differential line driver-receiver pair that uses low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) to achieve signaling rates as high as 400 Mbps. The driver and receiver electrical interfaces are compliant to the TIA/EIA-644-A standard.
The intended application of this device and signaling technique is for point-to-point baseband data transmission over controlled impedance media of approximately 100-Ω characteristic impedance. The transmission media may be printed-circuit board traces, backplanes, or cables. The ultimate rate and distance of data transfer is dependent upon the attenuation characteristics of the media, the noise coupling to the environment, and other application specific characteristics.
The SN65LVDS049 is characterized for operation from 40°C to 85°C
