HFAN-06.2: IBIS Data for CML, PECL, and LVDS Interface Circuits


The integrated circuits (ICs) found in optical modules and system back-planes rely on the high frequency performance of interconnections. These high-speed circuits need to be modeled to verify signal integrity with imperfect connectors and transmission lines. Model information for select Maxim fiber ICs is made available in IBIS data format at http://www.maximintegrated.com/ibis.cfm. Interpretation and limitations of IBIS data in fiber circuit interfaces are described in this paper.
