The ADN4680E comprises four multipoint, low voltage differential signaling (M-LVDS) transceivers (driver and receiver pairs) that can operate at up to 125 MHz, or 250 Mbps nonreturn to zero (NRZ). The driver and receiver of each transceiver are connected in half-duplex configuration, which allows each transceiver to be configured via independent enable pins for either sending or receiving data. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection of up to ±15 kV is implemented on the bus pins. The transceivers are optimized for low dynamic power consumption for use in high density applications. The ADN4680E is designed to the TIA/EIA-899 standard for use in M-LVDS networks and complement TIA/EIA-644 LVDS devices with additional multipoint capabilities.

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. Each receiver can be independently pin selectable as a Type 1 or Type 2 receiver. Type 1 receivers have 15 mV of hysteresis so that slow changing signals or loss of input does not lead to output oscillations. Type 2 receivers exhibit an offset threshold, guaranteeing the output state when the inputs are open (open circuit fail-safe), the bus is idle (bus idle or terminated fail-safe), or when the inputs are hard short circuited.

The device is available in a compact 48-lead, 7 mm × 7 mm LFCSP and operates over a temperature range of −40°C to +105°C.

Product Detail

The EVAL-ADN4680EEBZ allows quick and easy evaluation of the ADN4680E 250 Mbps, half-duplex, quad multipoint, low voltage differential signaling (M-LVDS) transceivers. The EVALADN4680EEBZ allows the input and output functions of each transceiver to be exercised without the need for external components.

Subminiature A (SMA) connectors provide convenient connections for high speed logic and the M-LVDS bus signals. Screw terminal blocks are available to access power, ground, and digital signals. Jumper options allow control of each transceivers driver and receiver enable pins, each transceivers fail-safe functionality, and the global power-down mode.

The EVAL-ADN4680EEBZ is optimized for high speed signaling. The differential M-LVDS signal traces on the board are routed as a length matched 100 Ω differential pair. The DIx digital input and ROx receiver output are also length matched and routed with a controlled 50 Ω impedance to ground. The EVAL-ADN4680EEBZ features a solid ground and power plane for optimum power integrity.

The EVAL-ADN4680EEBZ has a footprint for the ADN4680E transceivers in a 7 mm × 7 mm, 48-lead LFCSP. For full details on the ADN4680E, see the ADN4680E data sheet, which must be used in conjunction with the user guide when using the EVAL-ADN4680EEBZ.
