TI claims 'first' multipoint-LVDS receivers

Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has introduced dedicated multipoint-LVDS (M-LVDS) receivers, said to be the first such products. To date, customers converting M-LVDS to LVTLL for multidrop clock distribution have used transceivers with unnecessary integrated driver circuitry. The single-channel receivers save space, power consumption and cost in end equipment such as cellular base stations, central office switches, network switches, routers and AdvancedTCA systems. The devices provide better technical performance in applications such as clock and synchronization distribution and control, as well as data signal transfer over backplanes and cables.

The SN65MLVD2 type-1 M-LVDS receiver provides the best noise margin with switching occurring near the zero volt (differential) input level. The SN65MLVD3 type-2 M-LVDS receiver provides built-in failsafe protection and eliminates the need for external pull-up/down resistors.

The addition of the SN65MLVD2 and SN65MLVD3 complements TI's M-LVDS family of products including transceivers, drivers, receivers and clock fan-out buffers. The company's interface IC offering for telecoms also includes LVDS, PECL, RS-485, PCIe and GbE Serdes.

Both the SN65MLVD2 and SN65MLVD3 are available in volume quantities packaged in an 8-pin small outline package (DRB). Suggested resale pricing in 1,000-piece quantities is $1.45 each for both products.
