Today’s high-speed requirement is moving the industry toward high-speed, serial, differential, low-power and point-to-point interface. LVDS offers all of these features. Pericom Semiconductor offers wide range of LVDS drivers, receivers and clock distribution buffers.
This application note discusses the interface between LVDS and PECL, LVPECL, CML, RS-422 and single ended devices using resistor network.
Since the structure of drivers and receivers are different between manufacturers, the circuits provided in this application note are for design reference only. The designer needs to validate the circuit and adjust the values of the resistors and capacitors in the circuits for optimal performance.
