The SN65MLVD201, 203, 206, and 207 are multipoint-low-voltage differential (M-LVDS) line drivers and receivers, which are optimized to operate at signaling rates up to 200 Mbps. All parts comply with the multipoint low-voltage differential signaling (M-LVDS) standard TIA/EIA-899. These circuits are similar to their TIA/EIA-644 standard compliant LVDS counterparts, with added features to address multipoint applications. The driver output has been designed to support multipoint buses presenting loads as low as 30 , and incorporates controlled transition times to allow for stubs off of the backbone transmission line.
These devices have Type-1 and Type-2 receivers that detect the bus state with as little as 50 mV of differential input voltage over a common-mode voltage range of 1 V to 3.4 V. The Type-1 receivers exhibit 25 mV of differential input voltage hysteresis to prevent output oscillations with slowly changing signals or loss of input. Type-2 receivers include an offset threshold to provide a known output state under open-circuit, idle-bus, and other faults conditions. The devices are characterized for operation from 40°C to 85°C.
