ADN4696E:  3.3 V, 200 Mbps, Half-Duplex, High Speed M-LVDS Transceiver with Type 2 Receiver

Product Details

Product Status:Recommended for New Designs

The ADN4696E/ADN4697E are multipoint low-voltage differential signalling (M-LVDS) transceivers (driver and receiver pairs) that can operate at up to 200 Mbps (100 MHz). The receivers detect the bus state with a differential input of as little as 50 mV over a common-mode voltage range of -1 V to 3.4 V. ESD protection of up to ±15 kV is implemented on the bus pins.

The parts adhere to the TIA/EIA-899 standard for M-LVDS and are similar to counterpart LVDS devices that comply with the TIA/EIA-644 standard for LVDS, but designed with features for multipoint applications. These features include a driver output that supports multipoint bus loads as low as 30 Ω, with controlled transition times to permit stubs from the backbone transmission line. Up to 32 nodes can be connected to the bus.

The ADN4696E/ADN4697E are Type 2 receivers exhibiting an offset threshold, guaranteeing the output state when the bus is idle (bus-idle failsafe) or the inputs are open (open-circuit fail safe). The ADN4696E/ADN4697E is available as half-duplex configuration in an 8-lead SOIC package (ADN4696E) or as full-duplex configuration in 14-lead SOIC package (ADN4697E).
