Their inputs have a wide common-mode voltage range that allow the crosspoints to accept low-voltage positive-emitter-coupled logic, current-mode logic and LVDS signal levels without using coupling capacitors.
The wide differential input range easily interfaces to LVDS, low voltage positive emitter-coupled logic (LVPECL), or current-mode logic (CML) input levels, and the output levels are fully LVDS compliant.
It has four outputs, programmable as LVPECL or current-mode logic (CML).
As designers migrate from simple CMOS solutions to the performance range dominated by bipolar ICs, Current-Mode Logic is one of the most convenient protocols for high-speed interfacing and is quickly becoming the protocol of choice for emerging, high-bandwidth, networking applications," said Mike Radhanauth, ON Semiconductor director of marketing and business development for High Frequency Products.
Competitive devices currently available are only available in Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) or Current-Mode Logic (CML).
It offers an adaptive high-speed interface between low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) and current-mode logic (CML), and the ability to operate at both 622Mbps (OC-12) and 2.
