differential signal

differential signal

[‚dif·ə′ren·chəl ′sig·nəl]
(electronics)
In a circuit, a signal that is the voltage difference between two nodes, neither of which is at ground potential. Also known as floating signal.

3V signal looks massive next to a differential signal operating in the hundreds of millivolts, so even a small amount of crosstalk from such a signal can cause big problems for the differential pair.
Agilent's new InfiniiMax III+ probes offer InfiniiMode technology, which greatly expands the measurement capabilities and usability of the probe, making it capable of measuring all the components of a differential signal.
This is illustrated in Figure 1, where a balanced differential signal is transmitted on two twisted signal wires (twisted-pair).
When the signal in the two channels is a 0 to 1 V signal in one and a 1 V to 0 signal in the other, everyone calls this a differential signal.

Configured in the receive mode, it has the ability to reject EMI/RFI common-mode noise and convert the transmitted differential signal back to a single-ended signal.
Common-Mode signaling requires the transmitter to drive both the + and - signal to the same 250mV level, thus squelching the differential signal.
FUNDAMENTALLY, A DIFFERENTIAL signal route path enables two complementary signals (N and P) to be sent from a driver to a receiver.
