Multipoint LVDS transceivers offer 8 kV IEC ESD protection

Analog Devices' multipoint, low-voltage, differential signalling ADN469xE M-LVDS series includes eight transceivers, each of which is capable of connecting 32 data/clock nodes using a single differential cable pair at data rates of 100 Mbps or 200 Mbps.


Traditional LVDS communication links, by comparison, must use 32 separate point-to-point nodes, which significantly increases power, connector size, cabling costs and total board space. ADI's ADN469xE M-LVDS series delivers 8 kV IEC ESD protection, offering up to 11 times the protection of competing M-LVDS transceivers. This higher level of protection improves the reliability of insertable/removable boards and cards used in wireless base station and networking infrastructure, data acquisition, automated test equipment and other high-speed, highly networked backplane and cable applications. Available in half- and full-duplex versions, ADI’s ADN469xE transceivers are fully compliant with the TIA/EIA-899 M-LVDS standard.

The new transceivers are available in configurations that include Type 1 receivers with 200 Mbps data rates include symmetrical input threshold voltage (ADN4691E/ADN4693E) designed to improve clock timing performance, and Type 2 receivers with 200 Mbps data rates (ADN4696E/ADN4697E) designed for data applications and feature a receiver-input threshold voltage offset of –100 mV. This ensures a known receiver output state when the bus is idle (bus-idle fail-safe) or the bus inputs are open (open-circuit fail-safe). The devices operate in the –40 to 85˚C temperature range.

This month, Future Electronics has 20 of Intersil's ISL8203MEVAL2Z evaluation boards to give away to EETimes Europe's readers. Worth 95 US dollars, the board was designed to demonstrate the performance of the ISL8203M dual step-down power module which integrates a PWM controller, synchronous switching MOSFETs, inductors, and passives all in a 9.0x6.5x1.83mm package.

The ISL8203M is rated for...
