Their inputs have a wide common-mode voltage range that allow the crosspoints to accept low-voltage positive-emitter-coupled logic (LVPECL), current-mode logic (CML) and LVDS signal levels without using coupling capacitors.
It has four outputs, programmable as LVPECL or current-mode logic (CML).
The device inputs have a wide common-mode voltage range that allows it to accept low-voltage positive-emitter-coupled logic (LVPECL), current-mode logic (CML) and LVDS signal levels without using coupling capacitors.
Quellan's EQ601 uses DC-coupled current-mode logic inputs/outputs and is available in a 4mm x 4mm 24-pin leadless LLP package.
They require no power or ground routing and they accept any high-speed differential signal technology, including current-mode logic (CML), low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) and low-voltage positive emitter coupled logic (LVPECL).
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.
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.
